On this day in 1959 Bill Shankly arrived as manager of Liverpool Football Club.

When Shankly came to Merseyside, the Reds were sitting in 10th in Division 2, having been relegated from the top flight in 1954. After two consecutive third place finishes, the Merseyside outfit were finally promoted in 1962.

Shankly went on to win 6 trophies in his time at Liverpool; 3 League titles, 2 FA cups and a UEFA cup. After 15 years at Anfield, Shankly would go on to retire in 1974, allowing assistant Bob Paisley take the reigns.
