Jordan Henderson showed his class off the pitch on Christmas Day as he treated underprivileged children to a special party at Anfield.
The Liverpool captain was joined by Adam Lallana in holding a festive-themed celebration for youngsters in a lounge in the Sir Kenny Dalglish stand.
Besides paying for the hire of the room and supplying food and refreshments, the midfielder also treated the kids to presents and took the time to sign autographs.
Their involvement drew the praise of Liverpool employee Ellie Phillips, who took to Facebook to ensure their selflessness didn’t go unnoticed.
She wrote: “So today I worked a Christmas party organised by Henderson which he paid the lounge hire (over £2000 in the KD stand) invited 3 lots of people and communities with underprivileged or disabled kids, filling a room each time.”
“He paid for all of the food, entertainment and brought Lallana along with him to meet everyone and sign their programmes/take photos.”
“Then to top it all off he had bought each of the kids a decent present for Christmas (including iPads for older kids). They’re both honestly the most humble, down to earth, generous people & made a lot of kids’ Christmas’ today. Our captain is boss.”
Well done lads .. pic.twitter.com/X1w4vy8r71

It really is testament to the humility that runs throughout this Liverpool side, following on from a string of charitable moments from Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Trent Alexander-Arnold meanwhile spent the day meeting with deprived families, giving more children a Christmas to remember in the process.
The Premier League leaders don’t just boast a group of supremely talented athletes, but also a squad of exceptional human beings.
