La Galaxy stars Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane dressed up as fans to play a prank on their teammate Giovani dos Santos.

Dos Santos was singing autographs for fans in an organised event when Gerrard and Keane decided to spring a surprise on the Mexican forward.

The ex-Liverpool pair donned scarves, hats and sunglasses to disguise themselves as Galaxy fans before gatecrashing the event.

They forcefully pushed their way to the front of the crowd, mobbed Dos Santos and demanded a photo with him whilst chanting “Gio, Gio, Gio.”

The former Barcelona and Tottenham man looked - understandably - very surprised at these two odd-looking men that were either side of him demanding pictures.

However, he saw the funny side of it when Keane and Gerrard removed their disguises prompting raucous laughter from the room.

Watch the brilliant prank in the video below:

The Galaxy start their MLS season next month as they look to improve on their playoff defeat to Seattle Sounders last season.

Gerrard left Liverpool to join the MLS in July last year, signing an 18-month contract. It's been reported that Gerrard could retire at the end of this upcoming season with him stating he's finding it difficult to deal with the long journeys for away matches.

Gerrard’s former Liverpool teammate Robbie Keane has played for the Galaxy considerably longer, having joined them in 2011. The Irishman is currently captain at the club and has scored a remarkable 73 goals in 108 league MLS games.
