Sir Kenny Dalglish hailed the heroes of the NHS yesterday after being released from hospital where he had been diagnosed with coronavirus.
The football legend was tested after going to hospital for treatment for gallstones but had been showing no symptoms.
Recovering in self-isolation at home yesterday after being released from hospital, Sir Kenny paid tribute to health service staff on the Covid-19 frontline.
The Celtic, Liverpool and Scotland legend said: “They were absolutely brilliant. As a nation, we are all very fortunate to have them and I wish them all well as they work tirelessly to help the country through this pandemic.”
Writing for The Sunday Post, our columnist said his family’s admiration and respect for the expertise, professionalism and compassion of NHS staff was boundless.
His personal tribute came as it emerged 10 doctors, including some who came out of retirement to help former colleagues, were among the 20 NHS workers who have died in the pandemic as the number of deaths linked to Covid-19 in the UK approaches 10,000.
