Virgil van Dijk stars in brilliant Liverpool Christmas ad – “Duo we never knew we needed!”

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.

As she drifts off into her dreams, we see the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson, Curtis Jones, Rachael Laws and Gemma Bonner take part in the best Christmas traditions.

Plus Nunez getting up to no good with the mince pies!

* The Liverpool FC Christmas range is available on the official LFC online store here.

John Aldridges 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:

If you havent seen the lfc Christmas ad yet ?here it is folks!!Great fun and privilege being on Liverpool fcs version of The Royal Family ??Being called soft lad off Jim Royal made me Pee myself Laughing
