'Heighway actually delayed his route into the professional ranks because of academic commitments – reading Economics and Politics at the University of Warwick in Coventry – but he made up for lost time, turning out 475 times for the Reds and scoring 76 goals.He won four League Championships, an FA Cup, a League Cup, two European Cups and two UEFA Cups in a trophy-laden career at Anfield and later took charge of the club's Academy.One of the most-clinical tacklers to have played centre-back for Liverpool, 'Lawro' was also quick and powerful at the heart of the Reds defence.He could have come to Anfield as a 19-year-old from his local club Preston North End in 1977 but Liverpool were outbid by Brighton & Hove Albion who offered £100,000, while the Reds refused to up their bid of £75,000.Lawrenson eventually made it to Merseyside for a then-club record £900,000 some four years later and went on to make 356 appearances, winning five League Championships, an FA Cup, three League Cups and a European Cup before an Achilles injury forced him to hang up his boots in 1988.The magnificent LFC History website includes a quote from Paisley of Whelan: “When those special matches come round and there are medals to be won and the pundits are asking whether the match winner will be Rushy or Kenny or Brucie, then I look past them all towards Ronnie Whelan and think to myself: 'There's our man for the big occasion. The list you're viewing is made up of different players like John O'Shea and Michael Robinson.This list answers the questions, "Who are the best Irish footballers?" The oldest club in Irish football, the Reds, have managed to win 21 top domestic titles in their lengthy existence.In fact, the Dublin-based outfit (naturally, of course), have managed to acquire more League of Ireland Premier Division crowns than their rivals, with 12 sitting in the trophy cabinet. We reckon Robbie was spectacular, if only for that goal against Germany.And last, but by no means least, we come to the man voted as the greatest Irish player of all time, the one and only Roy Keane.Like Robbie, Roy is another polarizing figure, but more for his outspoken attitude than his skills on the pitch.Forget Saipan though and let’s celebrate the fact that at club level, Keane was peerless.Not only had he talent in spades, but he had the will to win. and "Who is the greatest Irish soccer player of all time?" He began Defender and Midfielder from Killybegs, Republic of Ireland Séamus Coleman (born 11 October 1988) is an Irish professional footballer who plays as a right-back for and captains both Premier League club Everton and the Republic of Ireland national Ronald Andrew Whelan (; born 25 September 1961) is an Irish former soccer player who played as a midfielder and sometimes as a defender. After Defender and Forward from Ballyboden, Republic of Ireland Damien Anthony Duff (born 2 March 1979) is an Irish professional football coach and former player who played predominantly as a winger and is currently the first team coach at Celtic. Okay, perhaps Dunphy wouldn’t make the list. O’Leary was one of the greatest defenders to ever pull on an Irish jersey, but is criminally overlooked by many.He won a league and cup double with Arsenal before moving to Leeds, where his career stalled through injury.But when that man wore the green, he was nothing short of immense.It’s a pity his managerial career took a nosedive after Aston Villa, as we’d love to see him still in the game.At least he kept them in the Premier League though.The man with Baggio in his pocket.
