Ray Kennedy was loved by fans of both Liverpool and Arsenal after shining for both clubs in the 70s and 80s.

As fans of his former clubs joined together to help raise funds to support both Kennedy and raise awareness for Parkinson's, we look back to the famous 4-4 draw between the two sides in April 2009, when Kennedy was handed the most warmest of welcomes on his return to Anfield.

When Ray Kennedy took his first tentative steps out of the players tunnel for the first time in many years it capped a remarkable story of how the Liverpool and Arsenal legend has bravely battled the effects of Parkinson's disease.

This is why appeal founder Karl Coppack and his colleagues will have been more emotional than most when Ray Kennedy was given a thunderous ovation by fans from two of his former clubs in midweek.

The Reds legend has sadly passed away at the age of 70 after battling with Parkinson's Disease for over half of his life.

When the Ray of Hope Appeal was set up the idea was simple to provide practical support for Kennedy at the exact moment when he needed it most.

The latest meeting between Liverpool and Arsenal will live long in the memory for all who were fortunate enough to be there but it was the poignant half-time appearance of one of the games greats which should provide the most evocative recollections in the years to come.
