Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp turns stand-up comedian at Celtic match

Liverpool travelled to play Celtic to play a joint charity match on Saturday to help raise money for both the James Milner Foundation and the Stiliyan Petrov Foundation.

Jurgen Klopp was tasked with managing the Reds' team, which was chock full of former players as well as the likes of Joe Hart, Owen Hargreaves and Spanish World Cup winner Joan Capdevila.

Facing a tough afternoon, Klopp was charged with delivering a motivational team talk in the dressing room before the match.

Instead, the German provided a couple of minutes of stand-up comedy that began with a roast of Jamie Redknapp before moving onto some choice quips about the dubious fitness levels of his squad.

The game went onto finish 3-3, with Celtic grabbing a late equaliser through Gabby Agbonlahor thanks to an assist from Bhoys' legend Henrik Larsson (oh yes, he played for Manchester United too....).
