Steven Gerrard Goals
Kevin Keegan began his professional career with Scunthorpe United and was signed by Liverpool manager, Bill Shankly in May 1971.
He was signed as a midfielder to replace Ian Callaghan but his sparkling display up front in a pre-season match persuaded Shankly to plunge him into his debut alongside John Toshack in attack at the start of the 1971-72 season. His partnership with Toshack prospered and Keegan soon became the hero of Anfield.
In his first match Keegan scored after just 12 minutes, and Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest 3-1. He went on to score 100 goals for Liverpool in all.
He said farewell by helping Liverpool win their first European Cup with a 3-1 conquest of Borussia Moenchengladbach in Rome before joining Hamburg in 1977.
