Alan Hansen is one of the most successful British footballers of all time, with 17 major honours to his credit.
During his 14 years at Liverpool, he won seven Championships, three European Cups, two FA Cups, four League Cups and one League Super Cup. He was also capped 26 times by Scotland.
Born in June, 1955, Hansen began his career at Partick Thistle in 1973, making 108 appearances before his move to Merseyside in 1977.
He made 621 appearances for Liverpool, captaining the team between 1985 and 1990, but a knee injury ended his playing career in 1991.
Hansen's insights into the strengths and weaknesses of teams and individual players have won him a reputation as TV's best football pundit.
He has also developed a career as a presenter, fronting three BBC football documentaries (The Sack Race, The Football Millionaires and Football's Foreign Legion).
He is currently working on a film about the Scottish national team for BBC Scotland, due for transmission later this year.
A keen golfer, Hansen has also presented The Magic of the Masters, a BBC programme on the history and traditions of the US Masters.
A football columnist for Match of the Day magazine, The Express newspaper and The Radio Times, he lives in Southport with his wife and two children.
