Watford supporters and the wider football world are today commemorating the fifth anniversary of the death of Graham Taylor.

Taylor is the Hornets' most successful manager ever, leading the club from the fourth division to the top flight and Europe in just six years, after finishing second in the first division in the 1982/83 season.

He returned to the club in 1996, first as general manager, and then as first team manager, where he guided the team to the Premier League from the second division.

He later had spells as both a non-executive director and chairman before retiring in 2012.

He retained the position of honorary life president of the club from 2001 until his death on the morning of January 12, 2017, aged 72.

In 2014 the club renamed the Rous Stand the Graham Taylor Stand to honour his achievements.

Here are a select few of the tributes being paid on social media this morning.
