Klopp must sort out Anfield woes

Liverpool to face Shamrock Rovers

Liverpool have announced they will play a friendly against Shamrock Rovers in Dublin three days after their final Premier League fixture of the season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will face the League of Ireland side at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, May 14.

It will be the first time the two sides have met since a friendly in November 1982, when Ian Rush scored in a 1-1 draw.

Rush told “I played in the game against Shamrock Rovers over three decades ago and I remember scoring that goal. It’ll be great to play them again -- and this time, take away a win rather than a draw.”

It will be Liverpool’s second visit to the Aviva Stadium in a little over nine months, as they were beaten 1-0 there by Scottish champions Celtic in a pre-season friendly last August.

Billy Hogan, Liverpool’s chief commercial officer, said: “We are looking forward to coming back to Dublin again this year to play in front of our Irish fans.”

Shamrock Rovers chairman Jonathan Roche added: “It will be a great game for our players to be involved in, and also a good day out for our fans and Irish supporters of Liverpool.”
