Ex-Liverpool star Ian Rush made a surprise home-delivery to shocked Deborah Keenan after the local bank clerk scooped a £1,000 prize.
Mrs Keenan, 43, of Rainhill, hit the jackpot as part of a Magners £1k-a-day promotion but was even further taken aback when the Reds’ record goal-scorer delivered the cheque to her doorstep.
The Keenans, all Liverpool FC season ticket holders, were all at the family home when Anfield’s greatest ever number nine rang the doorbell.
Deborah said: “When I was called I couldn’t believe my luck! We were told the cheque would be hand-delivered so we were all in waiting. When Ian turned up at the door, we were just in utter shock.
“My son was absolutely delighted - he had a kick about with Ian Rush in the garden! It’s absolutely brilliant.”
Anfield legend Rush said: “When we heard that Debbie and her family were all big Liverpool fans I was delighted to be involved with the delivery of her prize.”
