Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list - along with former Reds winger Raheem Sterling and ex-boss Roy Hodgson.

Other notable former Liverpool players to receive an MBE are David James (2012), Ian Callaghan (2009), Roger Hunt (2000), John Barnes (1998), Peter Beardsley (1995), Ray Clemence (1987), John Toshack (1982), while Kevin Keegan (1982) and Emlyn Hughes (1980) were awarded the OBE.

The 30-year-old skippered Liverpool to Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup triumphs over the last two years.

On receiving his MBE for services to football and charity, Henderson said: “My family and I feel greatly humbled to be recognised in this way, more so given the reason for it.

Henderson is the latest of many serving Liverpool players to receive an MBE, among those being Kenny Dalglish - who was later knighted in 2018 - in 1985, Ian Rush (1996), Gary McAllister (2002) and Steven Gerrard (2007), while managers Bob Paisley (1977) and Bill Shankly (1974) were awarded the OBE.

He has been recognised for his sporting exploits and his part in forming a charitable fund, Players Together, which supported NHS good causes during the first coronavirus pandemic lockdown last spring.

Henderson, who is currently with the England squad preparing for their Euro 2020 opener against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday, has been awarded an MBE.
