Reports say Liverpool FC could be playing Shamrock Rovers at Aviva Stadium in May
According to today's Daily Star, negotiations are at an advanced stage to bring Liverpool FC to Dublin for a money-spinning friendly against Shamrock Rovers in the Aviva on May 13.
Liverpool play Newcastle United on May 11 in their last Premier League fixture of the season, where they could conceivably be crowned as champions. In what would be a massive coup for the Dublin club, Liverpool could then arrive in Dublin to their many adoring fans as Premier League winners, bridging a gap of 24 years since their last title win (pic below).
They played in the Aviva last August to a packed house in a friendly match against Celtic in what was billed as the Dublin Decider. It is believed that if Liverpool cannot come on May 13, then the date will be re-scheduled to late July or early August.
Hat-tip to Paul Lennon from The Star for breaking the story.
Update 5pm - we've been advised by Niall Swan from Extratime.ie that the match will be played on May 14th with full details being released tomorrow.
