‘Rest in peace Ray, 1951-2021.’

Former Republic of Ireland and Liverpool striker John Aldridge paid tribute to Kennedy, tweeting: ‘Yet another magnificent Ex LFC star has passed away folks.

‘Ray Kennedy what a player and lovely bloke who suffered so much with Parkinson’s disease for most of his life. He will definitely never walk alone. RIP Ray ynwa.’

Ronnie Whelan, Kennedy’s former teammate, said: ‘So sad to hear of the passing of my old team mate Ray Kennedy. An absolute legend at both Arsenal and Liverpool. Learned so much by watching him play. RIP Ray.’
