A number of former Liverpool players are touring Australia at the moment as part of a promotional event which features them taking on a team of Australian legends. 

Among the party are the likes of Steven Gerrard, Ian Rush and Jamie Carragher, who will all take to the field as the Liverpool Legends face a team of decorated Australian players including Brett Emerton, Tony Popovic and Mark Bosnich on January 7th at 8.30am GMT.

Gerard Houllier is back in the dugout for this match, and was filmed giving a team-talk to his charges that might differ significantly from the ones he would have given while he was leading them to FA Cup and UEFA Cup wins, and the players found it all quite funny.

Houllier even has a joke with Robbie Fowler, given that he was the manager who sold him to Leeds back in 2001, saying that he would get on the pitch as everyone would play in the match.
