Gary Lineker shares heartfelt message following Liverpool's announcement of club legend Alan Hansen's critical condition in the hospital.

A club statement expressed: “The thoughts and support of everyone at Liverpool FC are with our legendary former captain Alan Hansen, who is currently seriously ill in hospital. A defender known for his elegance, Hansen’s illustrious career with the Reds spanned 14 years, joining from Partick Thistle in 1977, and included eight league titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups, and three League Cups. Affectionately known as ‘Jocky’ by his teammates, Hansen ranks among the top 10 for all-time appearances for the club, having played 620 matches, and also served as Liverpool captain for four seasons. The club is currently in contact with Alan’s family to provide our support during this difficult time, and our thoughts, wishes, and hopes are with Alan and the entire Hansen family. We will provide any further updates as we receive them, and we kindly request that the Hansen family’s privacy is respected at this time.”

Tributes poured in for Hansen, with former Liverpool striker John Aldridge expressing his thoughts and well wishes. Everton, Liverpool’s rival, also tweeted their support, while former referee Keith Hackett and ex-Crystal Palace forward Mark Bright also sent messages of encouragement and support on social media.
