Ron Yeats was the first Liverpool captain to lift the FA Cup – but his place in Anfield history goes way beyond that. The Scot was the rock around which the legendary Bill Shankly built his first great side. A colossus – that’s how Shanks described his latest signing in the summer of 1961 before inviting journalists to take a walk around with him. Yeats was installed as captain within six months of his arrival from Dundee United and it proved to be an inspired choice. His debut season saw Liverpool win the Second Division Championship after eight years in the wilderness and over the next decade, Yeats would help turn the reds into one of the most feared sides in Europe. Without him, Liverpool Football Club would not be the club we know today.
