Amid the hullabaloo and fuss that surrounded Mohamed Salah's heroic goal against Napoli at Anfield that sent Liverpool to the last 16 of the Champions League, one visually-impaired supporter identified as Mike Kearny could not comprehend what it looked like.

As such, his cousin, who is a Liverpool fan took up the duty to explain the moment to Kearny in a heartwarming fashion.

As the cameras panned around Anfield after Salah's effort , the Liverpool fan could be seen whispering to Kearny in an attempt to describe the Egyptian forward's goal.

Kearny has since taken to Twitter to reveal that it was his cousin who actually informed him who the goalscorer was.

According to a SPORTbible report, Kearney has attended every Liverpool home match for around five or six years now.

Fascinatingly, the 26-year-old has a special way of interpreting key moments, disclosing that he can only see bits of moments upclose.

"I'm registered blind I have got Retinitis Pigmentosa, it's a degenerative condition. It's got worse as I've got older, thankfully it's a bit more stable now but it's not the best," he told SPORTbible.

"My cousin was explaining to me who scored. To be honest it's just a normal experience of football for me. I join in with the singing and shouting and celebrate like anybody else does. I can see bits of the game up close. But what I can't see clearly isn't hard to work out what's going on," he added.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Mohamed Salah's lone goal was all Liverpool needed to progress to Champions League round of 16.

Jurgen Klopp's men were unsure of their chances before the meeting having gathered just six points after five matches.
