In what could be seen as one of the unlikeliest contract demands of all time, McAuley negotiated a wardrobe of his own upon signing for the reds, as he had nice clothes/shoes he wanted to protect.

McAuley, who was coached by Steven Gerrard in the U18 setup last season talks about what it felt like scoring his first significant goal for the Academy. Glen has scored some spectacular goals in his time at LFC. McAuley also explains that meeting your heroes in person is a different kind of feeling to seeing them on TV.
