News From Liverpool: “His speech wasnt great!” – Liverpools “massive” reception for record-breaker Salah

The Egyptian described the moment as special, and it comes just days after he became only the second Liverpool player to hit 20 goals in six successive seasons.

Immediately after the game, Paul Joyce of the Times reported that he was presented with a commemorative shirt with 129 on the back to mark the occasion.

Players and supporters were quick to react to the record, with teammate Andy Robertson full of praise for Liverpools No. 11 after his 129th Premier League goal.

The record breaker, I dont know how many records that hes broken but I know that one means a lot to him, Robertson told LFCTV.

Obviously Robbie Fowler, fantastic player for this club. A legend in his own right and for Mo to beat him, and not to take anything away from Robbie, but in quite a lot less games.

Hell go down as one of the greats for this club, the Premier League, everything.

For this club, hell go down as one of the all-time greats and he deserves everything he got.

Huge congrats @MoSalah ?? #LiverpoolLegend @LFC

The Scotland captain also made a cheeky jibe about Salahs public speaking skills:

He got a massive cheer in the changing room when he came in, his speech wasnt great but hey-ho.

Hes a fantastic player, a fantastic person. Hell be hungry for more.
