In addition, he was named FWA Footballer of the Year in 1983 and 1979, as well as the 1983 Ballon d’Or Silver Award and the 1983 PFA Player of the Year.
After Joe Fagan’s resignation as manager following the Heysel Stadium catastrophe in 1985, he became Liverpool’s player-manager. In 1985–86, his first season in charge, he led the club to its first “double.” He was the manager of Liverpool from 1985 to 1991, and then of Blackburn Rovers from 1991 to 1995.

In June 2007, the organisation inaugurated a Centre for Oncology at Aintree University Hospital after raising £1.5 million.

Dalglish plays in the Gary Player Invitational Competition regularly, a charity golf tournament that generates funds for children’s charities all around the world. Dalglish was awarded an honorary degree by the University of Ulster on July 1, 2011, for his achievements in football and charity.
