Liverpool plan tribute to Gary Ablett before FA Cup tie with Oldham
Thursday 05 January 2012
Liverpool will pay tribute to former defender Gary Ablett with a minute's applause before tomorrow's FA Cup third-round tie at home to Oldham.
Ablett died on New Year's Day aged 46 after a 16-month battle against non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Black armbands will also be worn by the players of Liverpool, for whom Ablett made 147 appearances and won two league titles and an FA Cup.
Merseyside rivals Everton, whom Ablett joined after leaving Anfield in 1992, have already opened a books of condolence and announced earlier this week there will be a period of silence before Saturday's cup tie at home to Tamworth.
