Kenny Dalglish to represent Liverpool at Munich air disaster's 60th anniversary service

A floodlit Eilean Donan Castle caught the sunset in the Highlands

Manchester United fans paid tribute to the victims of the Munich air disaster in the largest ever commemoration of the tragedy on its 60th anniversary.

Matt Busby's side were making their way back from a European Cup tie against Serbian side Red Star Belgrade when a stop in Munich was required for the aircraft to be refuelled.

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has apologised for "any upset caused" after a tweet was mistakenly sent from his account during Tuesday's Munich air disaster memorial service.

The ceremony will also include readings from club directors Sir Alex Ferguson, Michael Edelson and Ed Woodward while Jose Mourinho and club captain Michael Carrick will lay wreaths.

"My last memory is of pushing a pack of cards into my pocket", United central defender and crash survivor, Bill Foulkes, recalled in quotes that appeared in the Manchester Evening News.

Manchester United will hold a commemorative service at Old Trafford today as the club pay their respects to the 23 people who were killed in the Munich air disaster 60 years ago.

Before kick-off at Saturday's match supporters observed a minute's silence to mark the disaster, while players wore black armbands.

Some surviving doctors and nurses involved in the treatment of manager Sir Matt Busby and his team were also in attendance.

"The victims will never be forgotten, they will always be remembered and will be a part of United's history forever. I'm just very glad that Henry Gregg. was counted good enough to play for what I consider to be one of the greatest clubs in the world".

His strong, domineering physique and quickness of foot meant the midfielder was the complete all-rounder on the football field in the same mould perhaps as Paul Gascoigne or Wayne Rooney; only much, much better according to those who had the pleasure of seeing him play. "The passion, determination and courage shown by the club to carry on in those disgusting moments have left an indelible mark forever".

"Matt never spoke to me about Munich, but he spoke about Duncan Edwards, David Pegg, Eddie Colman and all the boys who passed away", Ferguson is quoted by the official United site as saying.

"We used to watch a lot of videos of their games, especially from their FA Youth Cup runs, so we could see footage of what these players were like when they were young. The spirit of the club is created by all these young players - and that began back then".
