Juventus have led the tributes to Liam Brady with a touching message on Instagram as the Irish legend celebrates his 59th birthday today.

Brady, known for his sweet left foot, sealed the Old Lady's second star to signify their 20th Serie A title win with a penalty in their 1-0 win against Catanzaro in his final game after two seasons with the Italian giants.

He is widely recognised as one of Ireland greatest ever footballers and is never far from the public consciousness through his work with RTE and as former assistant to Giovanni Trapattoni with the Republic of Ireland.

The talented midfielder retains a warm place in the hearts of all Juve fans, not only for his class but the supreme elegance with which he played the beautiful game.

Brady's was capped over 70 times for the Republic of Ireland in a glittering career and other clubs which he represented with distinction, namely Arsenal and West Ham United, were quick to wish him well today.

The Dubliner still works for arsenal in their underage system and is celebrating his birthday in Qatar where he is with their U17 side.
