Brendan Rodgers’ side kicked things off with a 4-0 victory over True Thai All Stars.

Allowing time for summer signings Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan and Divock Origi to settle in and meet their new teammates, the Reds then flew to Brisbane.

The club used the opportunity to launch the new 2015/16 away kit, with Reds legend Robbie Fowler skydiving as part of the promotion, whilst Liverpool beat Brisbane Roar 2-1.
