It took a couple of years for this footballer to get a chance to really show his talent at Liverpool.

He's a man that is remembered most for scoring the opening goal in Liverpool's first European Cup triumph in Rome as the Reds overcame Borussia Monchengladbach 3-1.

Terry McDermott signed for the Reds from Newcastle United in 1974 for £175,000, although it took a while for the midfielder to really get his chance for Bob Paisley's Reds, as for a couple of years he was in and out of the team; and during the 1975/76 season, despite starting several games at the start of the season, he was in the reserves when the side was lifting the league championship.

But from 1976 onwards he was a key part of the Liverpool side until he returned to Newcastle in 1982 and his honours list is among the best.

He won four league titles, two League Cups, three European Cups and the UEFA Cup - along with some individual recognition in 1980 when he was crowed Footballer of the Year by both the Football Writers and the Professional Footballers Association. During the course of his Liverpool career he scored 81 goals from 329 appearances.

His talents then saw him become a regular at international level for England, making 25 appearances for his country over a five-year period.
