Frenchman Henry played at the ground eight times during his pro career, all with the Gunners.

He got the chance to play there again in a charity match organised by Reds heroes Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher. He brought some excitement to the affair with a brilliant piece of skill to set up Ryan Babel for a shot. The 37-year-old pretended to shoot with his right foot, before passing with his left.

After the match, Henry said: “I’ve said so many times they are amazing. When they are singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, it is just amazing. It was the first time that I could, and was allowed, to watch it and enjoy it and it is great. This crowd has won so many points for the team.

“What a day for Stevie G, what a day for Carra and what a day for the club. I was just happy to be a small part of it.”

As a fan favourite at the Emirates it is surprising that the former striker would give such high praise to a rival group of supporters. With Gunners fans gaining the unwanted reputation of being too quiet on matchdays in North London, maybe their ex-player was trying to show them what they should be doing?
