Having mathematically secured the club's 19th league title last month, the Reds were set to receive the silverware at their final home match of the 2019-20 campaign on July 22.

With supporters unable to attend the behind-closed-doors fixture, the historic occasion involved a unique presentation designed to acknowledge and celebrate Liverpool fans.

Liverpool players, manager Jurgen Klopp and staff collected the Premier League trophy and their winner’s medals on a special podium built at the centre of the Kop surrounded by fan banners.

Sir Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool manager when the club last won the championship in 1990, joined Premier League chief executive Richard Masters to deliver the medals.

The Reds squad, led by captain Jordan Henderson - who lifted the trophy at Anfield - have been involved in the planning for the much-anticipated ceremony.

The clash with Chelsea, and the subsequent trophy presentation, was broadcast free-to-air by Sky on its Pick channel in the UK, to ensure supporters could watch from home.

Supporters can share their celebrations of the Reds' Premier League title triumph with the club via social media by adding the hashtag #LFCatHome to photographs and videos.
