Liverpool cult hero looks unrecognisable with full sleeve tattoos, a massive beard and his trademark long hair gone

THIS LIVERPOOL cult hero looks completely unrecognisable from his playing days.

The 48-year-old has ditched the silky, long hair from his playing days for a shorter look with a bushy beard.
