Liverpool fans have been reacting to an advertisement realised by the club’s main sponsor which features the iconic former Reds manager Bob Paisley.
Standard Chartered brought the County Durham man back to life using smart technology that placed him in the dressing room amongst other greats such as Ian Rush and Phil Neal.
Their campaign, Project Stand Red, aimed to highlight Paisley’s achievements and use them to inspire and educate the next generation of Liverpool fans.

Paisley, who would have been 100 years old this year, was the Reds most successful manager and took the reins between 1974 to 1983, winning twenty trophies in just nine seasons. This included six First Division titles and three European Cups.
Supporters were in awe of the emotional commercial and made their feelings clear about it on social media.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Liverpool fans:
