Former Liverpool and Arsenal player Ray Kennedy has died at the age of 70.

Kennedy won three European Cups and five league titles with the Reds, whom he joined from Arsenal in 1974, having done the league and FA Cup double with the Gunners three years earlier.

A personal highlight was his pivotal away goal in the 1981 European Cup semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich.

He was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1984 and a testimonial game between Liverpool and Arsenal was held in 1991.

Later that year he sold his medals and 17 England caps to help raise funds for his care.

Liverpool said in a statement on Twitter: "We are mourning legendary former player Ray Kennedy, who has passed away at the age of 70.

"The thoughts of everybody at Liverpool Football Club are with Ray's family and friends at this sad and difficult time.

"Rest in peace Ray, 1951-2021."

Former Republic of Ireland and Liverpool striker John Aldridge paid tribute to Kennedy, tweeting: "Yet another magnificent Ex LFC star has passed away folks.

"Ray Kennedy what a player and lovely bloke who suffered so much with Parkinson's disease for most of his life. He will definitely never walk alone. RIP Ray ynwa."

Ronnie Whelan, who played alongside Kennedy at Anfield, added: "So sad to hear of the passing of my old team mate Ray Kennedy. An absolute legend at both Arsenal and Liverpool. Learned so much by watching him play. RIP Ray."
