- Family statement: ‘He’s now at peace and in no more pain’
- Clemence won three European Cups and five league titles
Tributes have poured in for the former Liverpool, Tottenham and England goalkeeper Ray Clemence, who has died at the age of 72.
Clemence was one of the finest goalkeepers of his generation and enjoyed a trophy-laden career at Anfield after being signed by Bill Shankly for £18,000 from Scunthorpe United in 1967. He also won 61 England caps, a total that would have been much greater but for the competition from Peter Shilton. England are due to wear black armbands in tribute to their former number one and goalkeeping coach in Sunday night’s Nations League game against Belgium. A full tribute will be paid before Wednesday’s game with Iceland at Wembley.
