    • Former England goalkeeper Ray Clemence has died at the age of 72 
    • Clemence played for Liverpool and Tottenham during an illustrious career 
    • He won 61 caps and was arguably one of the greatest GK’s of his generation

    Former Liverpool, Tottenham and England goalkeeper Ray Clemence has died at the age of 72, the Football Association has announced.

    Clemence, who won three European Cups and five First Division titles during a trophy-laden spell at Anfield, was arguably one of the greatest goalkeepers of his generation.

    He won 61 England caps, which would undoubtedly have been many more had he not been competing with Peter Shilton, who accumulated 125, for the number one shirt.

    The Football Association released a statement: ‘With great sadness, we write to let you know that Ray Clemence passed away peacefully today, surrounded by his loving family,’ said a statement from the Clemence family.

    ‘After fighting so hard, for such a long time, he’s now at peace and in no more pain.

    ‘The family would like to say a huge thank you, for all the love and support that he’s received over the years.

    ‘He was loved so much by us all and he will never be forgotten.’

    An £18,000 signing from Scunthorpe by Bill Shankly, Clemence was a key member of the Liverpool team which dominated Europe between 1977 and 1981, and also picked up two UEFA Cups, an FA Cup and the League Cup.

    At Tottenham, whom he joined in 1981 aged 32 for a fee of £300,000, he won another UEFA Cup and FA Cup.

    After his playing days, Clemence joined the England coaching set-up as he joined forces with former Spurs team-mate and then Three Lions boss Glenn Hoddle in 1996.

    He continued to be England’s goalkeeping coach under Kevin Keegan, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Steve McClaren until Fabio Capello took charge.

    He returned to the national team backroom staff when Roy Hodgson took over and oversaw the goalkeepers at Euro 2012 before retiring one year later. 

    Clemence is survived by his wife Veronica, son Stephen – a former player himself and now a coach – and daughters Sarah and Julie.

    CLEMENCE’S CAREER IN NUMBERS

    3 – European Cup triumphs with Liverpool

    5 – First Division titles won while at Anfield

    16 – a then top-flight record low number of goals conceded over 42 games in the 1978/79 First Division season

    61 – England caps, having shared the number one jersey with Peter Shilton

    240 – league appearances for Tottenham

    323 – clean sheets during his Liverpool career

    336 – consecutive games played between September 9, 1972 and March 4, 1978

    665 – total appearances for Liverpool before joining Tottenham in the summer of 1981

    1972 – Clemence made his England debut in a World Cup qualifier against Wales in November 1972

    1983 – his last England cap came during a European Championship qualifier against Luxembourg in November 1983

    18,000 – the fee in pounds paid by Liverpool to sign an 18-year-old Clemence from Scunthorpe in the summer of 1967
