Is this Liverpool’s greatest ever away shirt?

Liverpool are flying at the moment.

Mohamed Salah is leading the charge as Jurgen Klopp’s side battle for second place in the Premier League, and Liverpool’s fearsome attack makes them one of the teams nobody wants to draw in the Champions League quarter-finals.

They were similarly brilliant back in 1989-90, when John Barnes and Ian Rush were tearing it up, helping them to win the First Division and reach the FA Cup semi-final.

Barnes, Rush and the likes of Alan Hansen and Peter Beardsley looked good under Kenny Dalglish, and they also wore some utterly outrageous kits that season.

The iconic Candy sponsor was emblazoned across the front of the classic Adidas shirts, with the geometric design. The red shirt will go down as one of the finest Liverpool kits in their history, but there was something glorious about the grey away shirt too. Feast your eyes on this:

The state of that beauty.

That season was the last time Liverpool won the domestic title, the end of an era for a side who had dominated England and Europe throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and they did it in style.
