The former Reds forward, who scored 78 goals in 213 appearances during a six-year spell with the club and was affectionately known as ‘Doc’, died this morning at the age of 71.

And he returned to Everton in August 1982 having left an indelible mark during one of the most successful eras in Reds history that included four league titles, three European Cups, two League Cups and a UEFA Super Cup.

Beyond the goals and the medals, David departed with a cherished place in supporters’ hearts and memories.

A boyhood Liverpool fan, Johnson’s football journey actually began on the other side of Stanley Park and he had only just turned 20 when he scored the winner for Everton against the Reds in a 1971 Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.

Instead, David would go on to spend four years at Ipswich Town before in the summer of 1976 Bob Paisley, now in the Liverpool dugout, sealed the coveted deal to bring him back to L4 and this time the Reds.

But five goals in 17 outings – including one for the Reds back at Goodison Park as he became the first player to have scored winners for both teams in a Merseyside derby – hinted at the flowing finishing to follow.

There were 18 goals in all competitions in 1978-79, a whopping 27 more the next year and then 13 during a 1980-81 season that concluded with his own European Cup moment.
