Liverpool will hold a minute’s silence before the Barclays Premier League clash with Aston Villa tomorrow in memory of club secretary Bryce Morrison, who died this morning.
Morrison had worked at Anfield for 17 years, and chief executive Rick Parry said the club is “devastated at the news”.
Parry added on Liverpool’s website: “His dedication to and love for the club was apparent to all who worked alongside him.”
A statement from the Premier League said: “On hearing the sad news of Bryce Morrison’s sudden and unexpected death, everyone at the Premier League would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Bryce’s family, friends and Liverpool FC.
“Bryce was an excellent football administrator, and above all a decent man.”
