Liverpool were crowned European champions on Saturday night, and former Reds players sent messages of congratulations to a fresh batch of legends.
Champions League winners—sounds pretty special, doesn’t it?
For many supporters, Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham still may not have sunk in, on one of the most significant nights in the club’s history.
Jubilant scenes greeted the final whistle, culminating in Jordan Henderson and his team-mates lifting the trophy.
After the game, a host of joyous ex-Reds congratulated the players on social media.
Here’s a look at the best of the reaction, including Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.

Liverpool are set for a Champions League winner’s parade on Sunday, starting at Allerton Maze at 4pm, heading north on Queens Drive and ending on Blundell Street.
It is likely that some of those congratulating their successors tonight will be in attendance after a truly historic night for the club.
