For those you getting a dog this Christmas, Jordan Henderson has the perfect name for what to call your new friend. 

The Liverpool captain got into the festive spirit by giving fans the chance to ask him a question via his Instagram story – and he decided to have some fun at the expense of his team-mate James Milner.

One fan asked Henderson for advice on what to call their new pet, writing: ‘What’s your favourite name for a dog? Getting a puppy tomorrow and cannot decide!’

Henderson saw an opportunity to have some fun at the expense of one of his team-mates.

He replied: ‘Milly… loyal and never stops running,’ and tagged in his Reds team-mate but didn’t go as far as saying a dog is for life, not just for Christmas.

Milner has developed a reputation for being a hard-worker and has played in several different positions for Liverpool.

He also regularly plays up to his ‘boring’ persona on social media, using the lockdown in March to rearrange his tea bags and cut his lawn.  

The 34-year-old wasn’t the only Liverpool player mentioned in Henderson’s Q&A. 

The midfielder was also asked who would win in a race between himself and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Henderson, who fancies himself as one of the Reds’ quickest players, said: ‘Doesn’t matter what distance. It’s me and he knows it.’
