The 69-year-old was admitted to Southport and Ormskirk General last Wednesday after feeling unwell with a separate condition.

He was diagnosed with having gallstones but was subsequently tested for COVID-19, as a matter of course. 

Dalglish, one of Liverpool’s greatest players and arguably the biggest figure in the club’s history, commended the tireless work being done by doctors and nurses to tackle the pandemic after his release.

‘They were absolutely brilliant,’ said Dalglish. ‘As a nation, we are very lucky to have them. I wish them well as they continue to work. 

‘It’s never easy being in hospital but when you are in the care of our NHS staff then it is wholly comforting. You know you are in good hands.

‘Marina and I would live to express our immense gratitude to the medical staff who cared for me and who continue to treat countless others throughout the country during an incredibly challenging period.’
