In celebration of Denis and his remarkable contribution to the world of sport and the city of Aberdeen a number of fans and corporate sponsors recently commissioned a statue of Denis.

‘Legend’ was created by Alan Beattie Herriot and can be seen at Aberdeen Sports Village.

The iconic image below was the inspiration behind the statue which was unveiled by Sandy Busby (son of Sir Matt Busby) at Aberdeen Sports Village on the 20th July 2012.

The ceremony was attended by Denis and his family along with his Manchester City team mate and friend Mike Summerbee.

Denis Law is still the only Scottish football player to have won the prestigious Ballon d’Or European Footballer of the Year award in 1964.
