LIVERPOOL players shared their wild celebrations with fans on social media after finally lifting the Premier League title.
The Red stars were keen to make up for lost time having had to wait 30-years to get their hands on the trophy.
With supporters watching at home or partying outside Anfield because of coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool’s stars were keeping them entertained as they sprayed champagne and danced around the dressing room.
Before heading behind the scenes, the players were called one-by-one to the podium where they received their Premier League winners medals.
It was then that James Milner was caught on camera aiming a dig at fierce rivals Manchester United.
The veteran midfielder said: “First time I ever wanted a red ribbon.
“It’s always been United before. F****** w******.”
Georginio Wijnaldum took loyal fans into consideration by live streaming the event on Instagram with a 23 minute video where each player received their medal before lifting the trophy.
Liverpool players looked on top of the world as they headed into the dressing room embracing and soaking up their achievements.
Captain Virgil van Dijk was seen getting the party started by spraying champagne and was joined by Alisson and Andy Robertson.
The star-studded squad were then all on their feet with a rendition of “Championes, Championes.”
Others sank beers while wearing their personalised ‘champions 19/20’ shirts made for the occasion.
And the players even managed to celebrate with their families after the Premier League gave the green light for them to attend Anfield for the contest.
Captain Van Dijk would later post a selfie of himself alongside the Premier League trophy alongside the caption: “Just a kid from Breda, becoming a Premier League Champion.
“This is a dream come true but also an opportunity for me to remind every kid in the world that anything is possible.
“Hard work & perseverance! Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hate or negativity stop you from being the best you can be!
“Thanks to my family, fans, teammates and the whole staff! Liverpool this is for YOU!”
The Dutchman, who has been integral to Liverpool’s success, also revealed games against Aston Villa and Wolves were season-defining.
The Reds were trailing with three minutes to go against Villa before sensationally sealing a 2-1 win.
It was a similar situation against Wolves when Roberto Firmino struck late to seal three points.
Liverpool lift the title for the first time in 30 years
Boss Jurgen Klopp was right in the middle of the celebrations and promised supporters they will host a huge party once the “bull**** virus” is over.
He told Sky Sports: “Thank you very much, we should all together celebrate at home, drink and celebrate.
“When this bulls*** virus is gone we will celebrate together and have a party!”
