Ray Kennedy has died at the age of 70 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was diagnosed with the disease in 1984 and had to battle against it for 37 years since. 

 

Tributes poured in from across the football community following Ray’s demise. His former clubs, teammates and supporters shared stories and posted emotional messages on social media to pay homage to the deceased legend.

 

The forward turned midfielder enjoyed a remarkable career with Arsenal and Liverpool, having had 11 major honours to his name.

 

He wasn’t the most dominant figure in the dressing room, often seen as a humble and calm-headed man. He was "one of Liverpool's greatest players and probably the most underrated", Bob Paisley mentions in his book.

 

Known for his technical abilities, Ray had a first touch that could kill a ball instantly. He was a complete player known for both his offensive and defensive traits.
