WATCH - Young Irish Liverpool fan (7) had the day of his dreams at the Stadium of Light Newsdesk Newsdesk

It was a frustrating afternoon for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side as they drew 2-2 with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light but at least one Reds supporter was still beaming after the game.

Cian Moran (7) from Ballyhaunis, co Mayo had an extraordinary day as he got to act as a mascot for the team and had his Liverpool jersey signed by all of his heroes as they made their way out to the pitch to warm up.

Cian's uncle Tommy Moran has accompanied his nephew to plenty of Liverpool games in the past and when he renewed Cian’s membership card, he entered him in a lottery to be become a mascot and he was chosen for yesterday's Premier League encounter.

Tommy was on hand to record the moment when his young relative got to meet the Liverpool squad and he also took the chance to ask his favourite player, Roberto Firmino, for his jersey after the game.

Memories he will never forget. Watch above.
