The Football Association of Ireland has confirmed that Liverpool will play Shamrock Rovers in a friendly at Dublin's Aviva Stadium on May 14.

The two teams last met in 1982 when they played out a 1-1 draw in the Irish capital.

"We are looking forward to coming back to Dublin again this year to play in front of our Irish fans," Liverpool chief commercial officer Billy Hogan is quoted as saying by Goal.com.

"The club enjoys incredible support in Ireland. Our opponent, Shamrock Rovers, hold a special place for us as we bought Jim Beglin from them in 1983, who became Bob Paisley's last-ever signing."

Liverpool are currently in third place in the Premier League table.
