Incredibly, it is that time of the year again when Liverpool FC retail launch their Christmas campaign, and their brilliant advert includes the captain, Darwin Nunez and the Royle family.
Christmas Day will be here in less than six weeks, and the club have spread some festive cheer with their annual advert, which includes cameos from current players and a former one.
The advert includes the famed Royle family, as famous on-screen duo Ricky Tomlinson and Sue Johnston play nan and grandad to one very excited young Red on Christmas Eve.
Plus Nunez getting up to no good with the mince pies!
John Aldridge’s cameo is a particular highlight, turning back to the clock to 1988 with his lyrics from the Anfield Rap, with a great rendition of “Alright Aldo, sound as a pound.”
Although, the response of Ricky may have edged him for the best moment, turning around to say, “not that sort of rapping, soft lad. Bloody hell!”
It has certainly been received well with supporters across social media, and Aldridge even went on to share that he almost “pee[d] myself laughing” during his cameo:
