Liverpool goalscoring great John Aldridge didn't hold back as he gave an energetic performance in the commentary box during Tuesday night's extraordinary Champions League semi-final at Anfield.

Working for the club's official audio channel, Aldridge was encouraged to pin his colours to the Liverpool mast as they mounted a comeback from 3-0 down against Barcelona to seal a place in the Champions League final. Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum each scored a brace as Jurgen Klopp's side surged into the Champions League final, where they will face Spurs on June 1.

Aldridge's levels of exuberance continued to move through the gears as each of Liverpool's goals went in, as he toasted one of the truly great nights at Anfield with lead commentator Steve Hunter.
