Don Welsh replaced George Kay as Liverpool manager in 1951 after a spell as a player during the 1939/40 season.
In 1954 Welsh became the first Liverpool manager to suffer relegation in 50 years of football, and became the only Liverpool manager to be sacked in 1956 after failing to earn promotion back to the top flight.
Welsh died in 1990, aged 78.
