Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans said Ronnie Moran will be remembered "with great love and affection" following his death at the age of 83.

Moran played for the Reds between 1952 and 1968 before joining the coaching staff at Anfield, serving the club for a total of 49 years.

He twice filled in as caretaker manager, firstly in 1991 following Kenny Dalglish's resignation and once again in 1992 when boss Graeme Souness underwent heart surgery.

Evans, who worked alongside Moran for many years before including him in his coaching staff when he took over as manager, paid tribute to his former colleague.

"It's a sad end to a great man's life," Evans told BBC Radio Five Live.

"He's one of these guys that day in, day out, did his job and did a great job for Liverpool Football Club.

"Liverpool and the fans will remember him for the great man that he was and he'll be sadly missed.

"I'm sure he will be remembered with great love and affection for what he did for our football club and it's a sad time for us.

"Ronnie Moran is one of the greats of Liverpool."
