Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has pulled on the red, No 9 shirt once again. But sadly for his former fans the ex-England striker won't be appearing at Anfield anytime soon.

Instead, Fowler, 36, will ply his trade in the unlikely surroundings of the Thai Premier League after agreeing a move to Muang Thong United following his exit from Australian A-League side Perth Glory last month.

And Fowler was given a warm welcome by his new fans on his unveiling, with one even unfurling a banner reading 'welcome God' - the nickname given to him by the adoring Anfield faithful.

Muang Thong general manager Ronnarit Suewaja said: 'He agreed to play with Muang Thong United as a forward.
