Former Blackburn Rovers manager Kenny Dalglish describes why he felt the club were the 'people's champions' when they won the Premier League title in the 1994/95 season, ahead of nearest challengers Manchester United.

"They were the people's champions. They were a down-to-earth club."

"Manchester United were listed on the stock-exchange and a global club. We were just a small town that happened to have a good football team.” Transmission Date – May 2015.
