William Beveridge "Billy" Liddell (born 10 January 1922 – died 3 July 2001) was a Scottish international footballer who played as a striker for Liverpool from 1938 until 1961. A product of the Liverpool Academy, Liddell is the fourth highest goalscorer in Liverpool's history with 228 goals, which he amassed from 534 appearances.

He is widely renowned as one of Liverpool's finest ever players, and as a sign of his enduring reputation on Merseyside, he was voted into sixth place in the 100 Players Who Shook The Kop fan poll conducted in 2006. In 2002, Liddell was selected as one of the two representatives from the 1940s to enter Liverpool's Hall of Fame. (more...)
