With social media being such a huge part of a football club delivering news nowadays teams have often looked at ways to be creative with their announcements.
Whether it’s a new signing, new manager or a new contract – clubs are always trying to take the opportunity to create a viral social media post.
Sometimes though it backfires and fans are left cringing rather than laughing or smiling.
For Liverpool this time it wasn’t just fans who were joking about their social media usage. It was their own players.
Congrats Ox – you deserve a new deal for those moves alone ???????? https://t.co/KdoCFzefO3

Indeed, James Milner has completely made a mockery of Liverpool’s announcement of the midfielder’s new deal by having a laugh at his questionable dance moves.
The former England international stated that his teammate deserved a new deal for his dance moves alone. He accompanied that message with a laughing emoji and a dancing emoji.
Of course, news that the Ox is staying at Anfield for another four years is great news, but Milner was seemingly more interested in the shapes the 25-year-old was throwing.
