What asked for your memories of Larry Lloyd in a Liverpool shirt after the former defender died aged 75.

In a statement on the club website, the Reds say they are "deeply saddened" by the passing of a player who spent five years at Anfield and won the league championship and Uefa Cup with the club.

Here are some of your responses:

Neil: My first memory of watching football is the 1971 Cup final which we lost to Arsenal 2-1 after extra-time. Larry Lloyd played centre-back and enjoyed a fine game. By the time we returned to Wembley to win the cup in 1974 Larry had fallen down the pecking order and left the club that season... ending up in a Forest team that proved our nemesis. A fine player indeed!

Sue: A fantastic defender and a brilliant character. The game will miss him.

Jamie: A true footballing legend who gave his all for the Reds. He'll always be remembered for his fierce dedication on the field, inspiring both team-mates and fans alike. He'll be missed!

Jim: What a nice man. Lived a few doors away in Maghull. Good solid centre-half. RIP.

Eug: I have no memories of Larry Lloyd in a Liverpool shirt but he was a good player for Forest. Must be good if Brian Clough played him. Unsung hero.
