Families in plea for Dalglish knighthood

The families of the 96 Liverpool fans killed in the Hillsborough disaster have requested that Kenny Dalglish receives a knighthood.

Steve Rotherham MP, the former Lord Mayor of Liverpool, told fans at a memorial service in Anfield yesterday that the families had asked him to put down an Early Day Motion requesting that the Queen confer a knighthood on the Liverpool manager.

Mr Rotherham said it was "so that, on all our behalf, the King of the Kop can become Sir Kenny".
