Dirk Kuyt Leads 140,000 Feyenoord Fans In 'You'll Never Walk Alone' In Rotterdam

What a weekend it's been for Dirk Kuyt, who melted the hearts of Liverpool fans all over the world with his match-winning heroics in Holland.

He made a few Feyenoord fans happy as well, of course, as he scored a hat-trick on the final day of the Eredivise season to deliver the club's first title in 18 years.

Kuyt will always be a hero at Anfield for giving 100% in every single thing he did for every second of every day while a contracted player at Liverpool and developing a knack of scoring big goals in big games, and those who were delighted to see him deliver a league title for his boyhood club at the age of 36 will be even happier to see how much he enjoyed the celebrations.

The streets of Rotterdam were packed as Feyenoord presented "the bowl" for having won the Eredivisie, and Dirk himself was the centre of attention.

After whipping the supporters into a frenzy by starting the chant that gets sung at Feyenoord (Are we from Rotterdam? - Can you hear that?), Kuyt then participated in a much more familiar chant for those of us who don't speak Dutch.

As one of the many clubs who have adopted 'You'll Never Walk Alone' around Europe, Kuyt sang a few lines of the Anfield anthem to the Feyenoord faithful.

Not the best singer, it must be said, but fair play to him nonetheless.

It's a fantastic story, and the scenes are every bit as moving as the time he revealed to his children that the family were moving back to Rotterdam when he re-signed for the club .
