Jay Spearing has shared his pride of returning to a Liverpool squad, as the Under-21s played against Rochdale in the Papa John’s Trophy.
The Wirral-born midfielder made headlines for coming onto the pitch to replace Arthur Melo, on the hour mark inside the Crown Oil Arena.
Taking to his Instagram account after the game, the 35-year-old wrote: ‘Crazy Feeling Seeing This Tonight! ⚽️🤍 @liverpoolfc #71’.
There has been much made of the former Tranmere Rovers star returning to his boyhood club but when you see how much it means to him, it’s hard not to be happy for him.
