Former Liverpool FC star Geoff Strong has died aged 75

Liverpool Football Club confirmed that Strong, who had battled bravely against Alzheimer’s disease in recent years, passed away peacefully on Monday morning at a care home in Southport.

Strong, who signed from Arsenal for £40,000 after having scored against the Reds at Anfield on two occasions for the Gunenrs, made 201 appearances for the Reds between 1964 and 1970, scoring 33 goals.

He was part of the team that clinched the club’s first ever FA Cup win under Bill Shankly in 1965 but is best remembered for his role in helping Liverpool reach the European Cup Winners Cup Final the following season.

Condolences to all his family and friends

R.I.P. Geoff Strong
