Ronnie Moran (born 28 February 1934 - died 22 March 2017) was an English footballer and former manager of Liverpool. Moran spent his entire playing career at Liverpool amassing 379 games 17 goals. Moran also served as caretaker manager in two separate stints in 1991 and 1992, and was highly regarded as an influential member of the legendary boot room throughout Liverpool's golden periods in the 1970s and 1980s.

Liverpool career

Playing

Moran made his debut for Liverpool on 22 November 1952 in a defeat to Derby County. His final appearance in a Liverpool shirt came against Inter Milan in the second leg of the European Cup semi-final on 12 May 1965. During his 16 year career at Liverpool, Moran made 379 appearances in all competitions, scoring 17 goals.

Managing

Due to the shock departure of Kenny Dalglish, Moran was instated as caretaker manager for the last ten games of the 1990-91 season, but declined taking the management up on a permanent basis, and Graeme Souness was appointed subsequently. Moran enjoyed another spell as caretaker manager in the following season when Souness was admitted to hospital with a heart problem, Moran managed the final eight games, including the FA Cup semi-final win over Portsmouth. Souness returned for the FA Cup Final against Sunderland however. With his two spells combined, Moran managed 18 games, winning 5 of them, as well as the FA Cup penalty shootout victory against Portsmouth.
