Brendan Rodgers joined a host of Liverpool legends as they celebrated their annual charity dinner with guests in Anfield's trophy room last week.
The manager rubbed shoulders with some of the heroes of the Reds' illustrious past and took up his seat at a table alongside the likes of Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Jan Molby, Alan Kennedy and John Aldridge.
Hosted by LFC TV's Peter McDowall, the evening saw the legends and their guests treated to a three-course meal before some of the stars of the show took to the stage to share their treasured memories of life as Liverpool players.
Gordon Wallace, Ron Yeats, Phil Neal, David Fairclough, Gary Gillespie, Ronnie Whelan, Michael Thomas and Jason McAteer all reminisced on their Anfield careers before it was the turn of the manager to be questioned by the compere.
"First of all I would just like to say it's an honour for me to be here, sitting with some of the greats of this football club - and great to be among the supporters tonight as well," said Rodgers.
"I grew up knowing how big a club Liverpool was and the support that I have had since I've come here has been superb. I must say the supporters have been lenient so far given what this club has won in the past and the great history it has.
"So for me to get support whilst we are going through a difficult period, shows you the mark of respect that the Liverpool people and the supporters have.
"When most of the legends here tonight came into the club, they were told that they must finish first and first only. Second didn't count.
"I hope that one day we can return to that level but it's going to take us all sticking together and working very, very hard in order for us to achieve that.
"But what gives me great motivation is the history of the club. One of the first things I did when I arrived here was to put up pictures in the office of Bill Shankly, Kenny Dalglish and other guys who have been involved in creating the history here.
"For me it's a huge motivation that maybe one day - hopefully soon - we can get back to there."
The meal was followed by a raffle and an auction - during which a pair of signed Luis Suarez boots proved the most sought-after, going to the highest bidder for £600.
And to round the night off, comedian Mark Langley entertained the crowds - and even attempted to impersonate the manager himself as he went through his extensive repertoire of impressions.
"I came here for the Liverpool experience, to meet the people and hear all the stories," added Rodgers. "I came because of the football club as a whole but also I'm Irish and the people in this part of the world, we are all from the same bottle really.
"I have really settled in. I have moved out to Formby with my family and they have loved every minute of being here. It's a huge privilege to be here.
"I'm just going to give it my life every single day and hopefully we can keep the club moving forward."
