Paisley is one of the most successful coaches in the Merseyside club’s history. He has been in charge of the club from 1974 to 1983 and has won 3 European Champions cup and 6 First Division titles. Paisley passed away in 1996. This is not the first time Paisley’s CGI animated version appears in ads. Earlier, Reds legend has also been shown with Jurgen Klopp. Here are some reactions from social media.
