Liverpool cult hero Ragnar Klavan appeared in the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night – and fans were absolutely loving it.
The former Reds defender popped up to announce the results of his country Estonia’s jury vote. The 37-year-old, who has been without a club since January, received a warm welcome from the crowd when he appeared.
Klavan is best known for having represented Liverpool between 2016 and 2018, having joined the Anfield side from Augsburg for a £4.3million fee.

And having made 53 appearances under Jurgen Klopp, the Estonian made a brilliant cameo on the programme as it was hosted in England for the first time since 1998.
Klavan spoke for around a minute, starting off by saying: "Hello, amazing city of Liverpool. It's Tallinn calling, wow, what a boss night,” in reference to Jurgen Klopp’s famous catchphrase.
“Estonians are sending our strength to the people of Ukraine,” he continued. “You'll never walk alone."

Liverpool fans on social media were left gushing over Klavan’s surprise appearance, with one Twitter user writing: “Whoever decided to make Ragnar Klavan the representative for Estonia when #EUROVISION is in Liverpool deserves a pay rise.”
Another tweeted: “What a legend!! Get in Ragi…,” while a third added: “Big performance tonight.”
And a fourth wrote: “Klavan may not have been the flashiest player, but his work ethic and dedication were unmatched. He will always be remembered as a key member of the LFC family.”
