Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp brought out the bongos as he and his players delivered a rendition of Jingle Bells to children at Alder Hey hospital on Thursday.

The manager and his players met young patients and presented gifts during the squad’s annual Christmas visit to the children's hospital in West Derby.

Klopp, who was recently praised by former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard for lifting everyone at the club, appeared to have the same impact at the hospital as he delivered a powerful performance on his bongos while team captain Jordan Henderson helped out on guitar.

Players from the first-team squad delivered presents, signed memorabilia and posed for pictures. Klopp also took time to speak personally to the young patients.

Injured stars Daniel Sturridge and Joe Gomez were there helping to spread festive cheer.

Other players included: Philippe Coutinho, Jose Enrique, Roberto Firmino, Lucas Leiva, Adam Lallana, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Skrtel, Allan Rodgrigues de Souza, Connor Randall, Adam Bogdan and Cameron Brannagan.

The Reds take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday.
