Former Liverpool defender convinces Twitter he has signed for Barcelona

Former Liverpool defender Ryan McLaughlin had a bit of fun on social media as he pretended to have signed for Spanish giants Barcelona.

Whilst enjoying his post-season break, the 22-year-old decided to take the opportunity to have a joke with his 82,000 Twitter followers by posting a picture of himself at the Camp Nou holding a Barcelona shirt with the caption "...buzzing to get started at such a big club like Barcelona."

In reality, the Oldham defender had not completed one of the transfers of the century, but was just enjoying a summer holiday with friends in the city and decided to stop by the stadium for a tour.

The responses to the former Liverpool man's joke were amusing in themselves, we've included a selection of them below for your enjoyment.
