Former Liverpool and Tottenham goalkeeper Ray Clemence has died at the age of 72. 

The Premier League clubs issued a statement on behalf of his family to confirm he passed away on Sunday. 

Clemence, a former England international, was part of the dominant Liverpool side of the 1970s and also enjoyed success at Spurs before retiring in 1988. 

“With great sadness, we write to let you know that Ray Clemence passed away peacefully today, surrounded by his loving family,” the family statement said. 

“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.”

Signed by Bill Shankly in 1967, Clemence won five First Division titles and three European Cups with Liverpool in a glittering 14-year spell at Anfield. 

He then spent seven years with Spurs, winning the 1982 FA Cup and 1984 UEFA Cup. 

Clemence played 61 times for England and became goalkeeping coach for the national team under Glenn Hoddle, Kevin Keegan and Sven-Goran Eriksson, then later taking on the role again during Roy Hodgson’s reign. 

Having also worked with the English Football Association in youth development, he retired from the England set-up in 2013.
