To each and every Liverpool fan out there, You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ before he ended the message with a heart emoji.
Henderson’s message comes after it was confirmed that the club will have an opportunity to parade the trophy through the streets of the city after the council gave the go-ahead.
A bus tour will not happen until it is safe to hold one, but Liverpool city council confirmed their intention to allow an event similar to the one last year, when crowds of 650,000 flooded in

Liverpool will get their hands on the trophy at their final home game, with the Premier League working on ways to maximise the effect of the presentation but adhere to social distancing rules.
Meanwhile, boss Jurgen Klopp warned Liverpool’s rivals that the club are eyeing further domestic dominance.
The German has mapped out his ambition for the coming years and wants them to surpass Manchester United’s total of 20 league titles.

‘I will not stop, we will not stop, that’s it. We will stay focused and we see the opportunity,’ he said.
‘But ‘will not stop’ does not mean we will win everything; we just want to improve because the other teams are good already and will improve. Man City are absolutely exceptional.
‘I can’t promise we will win something but we will try everything to improve and I think that is possible.’
It will be a similar to the parade they had last year, when crowds of 650,000 flooded joined
