Liverpool tribute to Wayne Harrison

Liverpool have paid tribute to former player Wayne Harrison who passed away last week.

Harrison became a household name throughout the country in March 1985, when Joe Fagan made the then 17-year-old the most expensive teenage footballer in Britain.

The Manchester-born Liverpool supporter passed away on Wednesday, Christmas Day, after suffering pancreatic problems.

Initially spotted by Tom Saunders, the young Harrison was one of the most sought-after prospects in the game, with the Reds seeing off competition from Everton, Manchester United and Nottingham Forest to capture his signature.
