LONDON, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Former Liverpool star and manager Kenny Dalglish has been knighted in the Queen Elizabeth II's Birthday Honors list, the BBC said on Friday.

The 67-year-old, who won the European Cup three times while playing for the Reds and later managed the club, was also recognized for supporting Hillsborough victims and his charity work with the Marina Dalglish Appeal.

"For the family, it's a huge honor," he said.

Dalglish, Scotland's most-capped player, is the only sporting figure knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honors list.

Having won three titles as Liverpool manager, he left in 1991, leading Blackburn to the Premier League title four years later. He also managed Newcastle and Celtic, and had a second spell as Liverpool boss from 2011-2012.

World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua and two-time Olympic skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold are appointed OBEs, as is Bournemouth's former England striker Jermain Defoe.

Craig Reedie, the Scottish president of the World Anti-Doping Agency who was knighted in 2005, has become a knight grand cross.
