Sir Kenny Dalglish & Ian Rush lay wreath at Aintree for 34th anniversary of Hillsborough disaster | The Sun
FORMER Liverpool stars Sir Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush laid a wreath in the paddock to honour the 34th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.
The Aintree crowd joined in for a minute’s applause in memory of the 97 victims of the terrace crush, with Anfield anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone sung at the Merseyside course.
Both stars were at the tragic FA Cup semi-final in 1989.
Sir Kenny said: “My thoughts are always with everyone affected by what happened at Hillsborough, and the anniversary each year is always a poignant day for the city of Liverpool.
"It might be 34 years since 97 people went to a football match and didn’t come home but moments like this show that they will never be forgotten.”
Dickon White, Regional Director – North West, The Jockey Club, added: “Aintree Racecourse and Liverpool FC both have indelible links to the city of Liverpool and form a huge part of its sporting heritage.
