Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has tested positive for coronavirus after being admitted to hospital for treatment of an infection.

Daglish, who won six First Division titles as a player with the Reds as well as three more as a manager, went to hospital on Wednesday and was subsequently tested for COVID-19, and tested positive despite having no previous symptoms.

A statement released by his family read: “Sir Kenny was admitted to hospital on Wednesday April 8 for treatment of an infection which required intravenous antibiotics.

“In keeping with current procedures, he was subsequently tested for COVID-19 despite having previously displayed no symptoms of the illness. Unexpectedly, the test result was positive but he remains asymptomatic.

“Prior to his admission to hospital, Sir Kenny had chosen to voluntarily self-isolate for longer than the advised period together with his family. He would urge everyone to follow the relevant government and expert guidance in the days and weeks ahead.

“He would like to take this opportunity to thank the brilliant NHS staff, whose dedication, bravery and sacrifice should be the focus of the nation’s attention at this extraordinary time.

“He would also ask that they are given the space to do their jobs during what is an extremely challenging time for them and that his own family’s privacy is respected.
