Liverpool condemns irresponsible behaviour of fans

Liverpool FC Considers Fans' Behaviour 'Unacceptable' at Pier Head Where Tons of Rubbish Was Left

© Provided by Evening Standard Liverpool fans let off flares outside the Liver Building in Liverpool on Friday.

"We can not stress enough that behaviour such as this is wholly unacceptable and those who were setting off fireworks and flares in the crowd were putting the safety of those around them at risk".

Our city remains in the grip of a major public health crisis and this behaviour is wholly unacceptable.

Thousands of fans turned up at Anfield stadium on Thursday to celebrate, and Merseyside Police issued a dispersal order on Friday after crowds gathered for a second night at the city centre near the Mersey Ferry terminal.

Liverpool have warned that any fan convicted of a criminal offence during celebrations for their Premier League title win could have their future access to Anfield for home games removed.

He said later a group of about 100 people threw glasses and bottles at riot police as they tried to stop them committing acts of disorder in the city centre.

Fifteen people were arrested and police officers faced violent confrontations as Liverpool fans gathered to celebrate their Premier League win, Merseyside's chief constable has said.


Twenty-seven people were taken to hospital, three in a serious condition.

In a joint statement with Merseyside Police and Liverpool City Council, the club condemned supporters who ignored social distancing advice. "Being as good next year as we've been this year won't be enough, City will raise their game and so will other clubs".

"The potential danger of a second peak still exists and we need to work together to make sure we don't undo everything we have achieved as a region during lockdown. Until that time, the safety of our city and our people continues to be our number one priority".

Liverpool can not afford to get carried away by their Premier League triumph and must remain hungry for success if they are to compete with nearest rivals Manchester City next season, according to experienced midfielder James Milner.

"There was one team that was exceptional and, when one team is exceptional, I say learn from them and congratulate them".

"Seeing thousands of people congregating at the Pier Head into the early hours and the ugly scenes shared on social media afterwards was heartbreaking to see", Anderson said.

He said: "I appreciate #LFC fans want to celebrate but please, for your own safety, and that of others, go home and celebrate at home".
