Top 30 players: Liverpool - Number 28

Liverpool Scarves

This ex-player still gets his name sung on the Kop.

A man who still has his name sung every week at any Liverpool game - although it is more about the club's glorious past in general rather than this man's contribution. Steve Heighway was the man on Liverpool's wing - and had success under both Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley.

As a result of his list of honours there will no doubt be some that will raise a few eyebrows at his positioning on this particular list.

According to the LFC History website, Heighway had Paisley's sons, Graham and Robert, to thank for flagging up the interest, before the then assistant manager looked at the winger, who was subsequently signed from Skelmersdale United in 1970 as Shankly was undergoing a rebuild of the Liverpool side. Under the Scot he would go on to win the league title in 1973 along with the UEFA Cup, and clinch the FA Cup in 1974 - the last honour before Shankly's retirement. 

He would lay claim to being part of three more title successes under Paisley - as well as winning another UEFA Cup and two European Cups before leaving the club in 1981 for Minnesota Kicks.

In terms of his personal record Heighway made 475 appearances for the Reds, scoring 76 goals and received 34 caps for the Republic of Ireland. 

It wasn't just on the field where Heighway's effect on the club was felt as in the late 80's he returned to the club to work with the academy - and continued there in various roles until his retirement in 2007.
