Can anyone tell me or point me to a story about what happened here?
Strangely Dixie Dean got the same treatment.He was treated like a swine by Liverpool in his later years and feeling abandoned became a bit of a blue on the side. Then when he died they made him a patron saint because they knew he wouldn't argue the toss, and knew their fans wanted to paint it like they liked him all along.
Something like that I've gathered?
A year after retiring, Shankly sat down and wrote his autobiography with Roberts. Perhaps the most candid passages dealt with Shankly's retirement. On his treatment by Liverpool, he wrote it was scandalous and outrageous that he should have to issue complaints about a club he had helped to build. But while Shankly's fury burned from the page, there was no sadness about him, says Roberts. Indeed Shankly remained an ebullient man. "But he did feel that he had been let down by Liverpool; by the directors, mainly."I can remember reading about his life story a few years ago, don't know where though. Could've been on kipper or maybe even The School of Science book. He died an Evertonian according to that story.
