The 69-year-old Dalglish was hospitalized on Wednesday as an infection required intravenous antibiotics.

A COVID-19 test unexpectedly showed he had the disease despite previously displaying no symptoms.

Dalglish’s family says “prior to his admission to hospital, Sir Kenny had chosen to voluntarily self isolate for longer than the advised period together with his family. He would urge everyone to follow the relevant government and expert guidance in the days and weeks ahead.”

The family statement concluded by saying Dalglish “looks forward to being home soon.”
