Andy Lonergan is enjoying his surprise role as Liverpool goalkeeper.

Lonergan was brought in as emergency cover after an injury to Alisson.

 

The former Wolves and Leeds stopper had previously featured for the Reds in pre-season.

He sent another message out on Twitter yesterday highlighting how happy he is being part of the Reds' set up.

Lonergan is expected to be on the bench this weekend as Liverpool take on Arsenal, with Adrian expected to start.

Adrian has had his own injury issues too, and Lonergan could end up being pushed into action.

This is a chance which Lonergan probably never dreamed would arrive at the age of 35.

You can't blame him at all for enjoying it while it lasts.
