Brad Jones was the guest of honour as Liverpool's dedicated disabled supporters staged their annual festive dinner at Anfield.
Fresh from signing a new contract earlier in the day, the Australian goalkeeper popped along to meet fans from the LDSA, sign autographs and have some photos taken.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: "They show us so much support throughout the season so it's nice to come out and meet them in person, have a chat and take some pictures.
"It's massive that the club does things like this. Liverpool does a lot of work in the community, and these people here are die-hard fans who come to every game.
"Liverpool is a one-off. I don't think there is any other club like this one."
The LDSA was formed in 2003 and its ranks have swelled in recent years, with 170 people turning up on Thursday night.
Jones was not the only famous face among them, with former midfielder Brian Hall there to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and to present Lifetime Memberships to Andrew Coleman and the Ward family for their services to the LDSA.
Meanwhile, it was announced that David Fairclough would take over the presidency next year after John Barnes held the honour in 2012.
There was also news of a £500 donation by the LDSA to Radio City's Cash for Kids charity.
