Dean Saunders admits he fulfilled a boyhood dream playing for Liverpool during his successful career.
He did just that when the club paid a then-British record £2.9million to Derby County for him in 1988 and he still singles that out as the highlight of a glittering career that also brought international recognition.
"My dad played for Liverpool and had a bin-liner full of cuttings, so I was brought up on it," he told Sky Sports.
"He played in the same team as Billy Liddell and Bob Paisley so I was always brought up with Liverpool. I got a free transfer when I was 18 and went to Brighton.
"Then I went from Brighton to Oxford, Oxford to Derby, in a short period of time and then I managed to find myself with Liverpool wanting to sign me - I couldn't believe it.
Saunders is now in charge of Wrexham in the Conference.
