Tommy Lawrence, goalkeeper of Bill Shankly's first legendary Liverpool side, has died aged 77. Lawrence, nicknamed 'The Flying Pig' by The Kop for his bulky frame, was a fixture in Shankly's title and FA Cup-winning team of the 1960s, writes Chris Bascombe.

He spent 14 years at Liverpool, playing just under 400 times. The Scotland-born goalkeeper moved to Liverpool in 1957 under Shankly's predecessor Phil Taylor, but it was his charismatic compatriot who gave him his senior debut in 1962.

Lawrence's promotion coincided with the introduction of players of the calibre of Ron Yeats and Ian St John as Shankly's side regained top-flight status in 1963 before becoming English champions in their first year back in 1964.

Lawrence was then part of the team who won the FA Cup for the first time in Liverpool's history in 1965.

He won another league title in 1966 and was one of Shankly's most trusted lieutenants. He was eventually replaced by Ray Clemence after an eight-year stint as No 1.
