Out-of-form Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreo has been the subject of much talk over his poor performances for his Merseyside club over the past few weeks.

However, recent talk about Moreno may switch from his below average recent form to his controversial Instagram post of him taking his baby out for a stroll.

In what sounds like a normal family pastime, the 24-year-old Spaniard was pushing his baby's pram around the streets of Liverpool.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the unusual aspect of the family stroll, however, was the fact that the footballer was pushing the pram while riding on a self-balancing scooter, most commonly known as a hoverboard.

Moreno published a pair of photos side-by-side on his Instagram account yesterday, sharing the images with his 792,000 followers.

Walking with my little love

Moreno captioned the snapshot "Walking with my little love".

Hoverboards are banned for UK roads and footpaths, as they are categorised as 'personal transporters' and not considered roadworthy vehicles by the Department for Transport.

As a result of this, Moreno could be in line for a fine of £500 ($895).

Nobody has ever been fined that much for using a hoverboard on a road or footpath, however, with the first person ever to be prosecuted for riding one on a footpath being 51-year-old Barnsley man Phillip Coates, who was ordered to pay £75 ($134) for the offence.

A reprimand by Liverpool police would be the last thing Moreno needs this season, after losing his place in the starting side to James Milner following a horror performance in the first outing of the Premier League season against Arsenal in London.

The left-back has since had to settle for a spot on the bench in the past two games against Burnley and Tottenham, without even making it onto the field against Spurs.

Moreno will be hoping he will feature in Liverpool's fixture this weekend against reigning Premier League champions Leicester at Anfield.
