Liverpool sculptor Tom Murphy, who also created the famous Bill Shankly statue, created the sculpture that stands at just under seven feet tall.

LFC’s chief executive officer, Peter Moore, told liverpoolfc.com: “We didn’t have any symbol at Anfield that was a representation of our founder that our supporters could see and touch and reflect upon.

“The project of creating the bronze began in our 125th season; 125 years is a long time and it was all started by this man – without him, football on Merseyside certainly wouldn’t be what it is today.

“I hope our supporters take the time to go and visit Mr Houlding as he looks proudly upon our Main Stand.”
