Liverpool FC’s chief executive Peter Moore pledges a title parade

Liverpool's title win WILL be celebrated with a parade through the city, the club's chief executive has promised.

Uncertainty surrounds how and when fans can officially come together and herald the Reds' first league crown in 30 years, secured almost a fortnight ago.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a parade which is likely to bring one million people onto the streets cannot take place.

And although nothing is confirmed, it remains increasingly certain that celebration will not happen for several months, possibly even until 2021, depending how the coronavirus health crisis continues.

Peter Moore, Liverpool FC's chief executive, however, has pledged that a parade is certain to take place, at some point.

The former Sega and Microsoft businessman told the ECHO: "There will be a parade, when that parade will be, I don't know.

"The manager has promised a parade, the chairman has promised a parade, so there'll be a parade.

"The council has always been incredibly good collaborators with us and when it's time to celebrate, and this situation is now different [we will], and we're working with the council on appropriate ways in which Liverpool the city and Liverpool the football club can be seen in a great light.

Twelve days ago, the council suggested they were working on different ways to mark and celebrate Liverpool's first ever Premier League crown because of the lockdown.

Those ideas remain under wraps, but suggestions of some kind of gathering of players with the trophy, which supporters could log in and watch digitally from home, appear, for the time being at least, unlikely.

Mr Moore urged Liverpool fans to stay away from the stadium for the future home games, and spoke of the huge global draw the football club was around the world.

He said: "When you travel the world, and you say Liverpool, I'm old enough to know that the Beatles used to come first, but now it's football.

"And so we have this incredible platform that is football, that no matter where you are in the world and people say Liverpool, people smile.

"And this team, this squad, this manager, is bringing even bigger smiles to people around the world."

Mr Moore, who spent time growing up in Garston and Scotland Road but went onto notable commercial success while living in America, also detailed how he spent the initial moments after it was confirmed Liverpool had won the league for the first time since 1990.

He said: "When the final whistle went at Stamford Bridge, I'm at home, it kicks off all kinds of work for me about what we needed to do to make sure we were celebrating….through our digital platforms

"I've been carrying a bottle of champagne around for the best part of 20 years, and I've always said when we win the league, and I thought it would be a lot sooner than this, I would open that champagne.

"And I was on my own because my wife and the folks that are in my house were running out crazy, honking horns outside and what have you, and the champagne had gone off horrifically, as you might imagine.

"But I sat at home and toasted my dad, who has been gone nearly 20 years, and had a quiet thought about what this means to me personally, as a fan, that walked through the gates of the stadium in 1959 with my dad.

"I'm also old enough to remember when winning the league was just routine.

"That's what we did, and it was a bad season if we came second.

"I hope people raised a toast to the people who have made Liverpool Football Club lives that much more fuller, your dads, granddads, all of us have those memories around here."
