Paying tribute last month, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said Hunt "comes second to no-one in his importance in the history of Liverpool FC".

One fan said although he was never officially knighted, the Kop called him "Sir" Roger Hunt, and that probably meant more to him.

"I am told the Kop christened him 'Sir Roger' for all his achievements.

Former Liverpool player and England manager Kevin Keegan said the striker was one of his two favourite players of all time.

Up there with Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, Kevin Keegan and Mo Salah."

Ex-Liverpool striker David Johnson said Hunt was his hero when he was growing up, adding: "If I scored it wasn't me scoring, it was Roger."

Born in Golborne in Cheshire on 20 July 1938, Hunt signed for Liverpool in 1958 and made his 492nd and final appearance for the club in 1969.
