Richy Sheehy from Co. Cork has seen his song go viral overnight after posting his video to Liverpool's reddit page.

Kevin Murphy claims to be the biggest Liverpool fan in Cork, Ireland, and since the Reds’ sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona this month he’s offered a song of support for the Merseyside club.

To the tune of The Archies’ Sugar, Sugar, Kevin has allayed his fellow fans’ disappointment by reminding them of the other players they have on their roster.

Kevin’s video, endorsing the talents of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, has gone viral and he is hopeful it will be sung by the Kop for this weekend’s clash at home to Manchester City.

"I'm going on Soccer AM tomorrow as a guest to sing it live", Richy told Independent.ie.

"Can't keep up with the notificationsa nd it's reached Fox and NBC in the states as well."

"The MC of Anfield has said he'll play the Archies 'Sugar Sugar' in the stadium. Crazy times."
