Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has returned to the club as an ambassador.
The 39-year-old scored 183 goals in 369 appearances across two spells with the Anfield club.
He will now fill a variety of ambassadorial roles with the Reds, including work at their academy.
"I'm looking forward to representing this great club and will do all I can to support success both on and off the pitch," he said on the club website.
Fowler signed professional terms with Liverpool in 1993, and became a prominent figure at Anfield in his eight years there before joining Leeds in 2011. He would return to the club for the 2006-06 season, and ended his career in 2012 with Thai side Muangthong United.
