Moores’ death left the club “deeply saddened” according to a statement.
“The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool FC are with David’s family and friends at this difficult time,” it added.
Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish, along with his wife Marina, expressed condolences to the Moores family.
Dalglish wrote on Twitter: “He was a loyal Liverpool fan whose dream came true when he was appointed chairman, and he did a tremendous amount to help the club.
“He’ll be greatly missed by all who knew him. RIP.”
