Alberto Moreno couldn’t resist a pre-match photo with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard on Saturday.

The Reds captain was rested for the visit of Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup fourth round at Anfield.

Moreno, meanwhile, was also omitted from the match day squad as compatriot Jose Enrqiue was handed a starting place.

The Liverpool summer signing treated his brother Diego Moreno to a photo with Reds captain Gerrard.

Moreno posted the above photo to Instagram, adding the following caption: “Before the match in Anfield with the legend @stevengerrard my brother @diegomoreno_90 and my friend @robenc23 #Bolton #LFC #YNWA”

The Spain Under-21 international completed a £12m move to Liverpool from Sevilla in the summer transfer window.

Moreno has scored two goals in 14 Premier League appearances for the Reds, notching against Tottenham and Swansea City.

The 22-year-old helped his boyhood club, Sevilla, win the Europa League last season, netting three times in 42 appearances.

The Spaniard is expected to be recalled to Brendan Rodgers’ side for the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at Chelsea.
