Now it has been announced their legendary former striker and manager Sir Kenny Dalglish will present their championship medals before captain Jordan Henderson lifts the trophy.

Skipper Henderson lifted the Champions League trophy last season.

And now he will be the first Liverpool captain to lift the league trophy since Alan Hansen in 1990.

He and his team-mates will receive the trophy on a podium surrounded by banners made by their supporters that will be built in the middle of their famous Kop.

And Liverpool have urged fans to “stay at home to enjoy the ceremony” next week due to the ongoing measures in place to safeguard against the spread of Covid-19.

A statement said: “With supporters unable to attend the behind-closed-doors fixture, the historic occasion will involve a unique presentation designed to acknowledge and celebrate Liverpool fans.”

That comes after hundreds gathered to celebrate the title last month after they were confirmed as champions, despite warnings not to.

Supporters also gathered at the city's waterfront the next night, leading to criticism from both the club and Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson.
