Move over Arsenal and their fireworks, Liverpool have unveiled their new away shirt in a quite brilliant way - by throwing club legend Robbie Fowler out of a plane wearing the strip.

The unveiling came during the club's pre-season tour of Australia.

The New Balance shirt is a a classic white colour, with a red trim.

Fowler, who scored 128 goals in 183 games for the Reds, said afterwards the shirt is "not only good on the pitch, it’s good for jumping out of planes."

The Reds face Brisbane Roar on Friday, before matches against Adelaide United and a Malaysia Xi.



Liverpool will take on Stoke City in their first Premier League match of the season on 9 August at the Britannia Stadium, hoping to avenge their 6-1 thrashing at the ground on the final day of last season.



Meanwhile, Liverpool have officially confirmed the numbers that their summer signings will wear during the upcoming season, whilst revealing that Raheem Sterling's No 31 shirt remains vacant following the youngster's switch to Manchester City.

Star signing Roberto Firmino will wear the No 11 shirt, which was most recently worn by flop Oussama Assaidi. Arguably the last top class player to wear the jersey was Jamie Redknapp.


As expected, James Milner has landed the iconic No 7 shirt which has been vacant since the exit of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Others to wear it include Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Keegan, giving the free transfer from Manchester City much to live up to.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne takes over Glen Johnson's No 2 shirt while new back-up goalkeeper Adam Bogdan will wear No 34.

Divock Origi, who signed last summer but who was immediately loaned back to Lille, takes the No 27 shirt.

Danny Ings, who was brought in from Burnley to provide competition in attack, will wear No 28.
