For their part, Liverpool were aggrieved that Hillsborough was once again the subject for vandalism and chanting.
A Liverpool spokesperson said: ‘We are deeply disappointed to hear vile chants relating to football stadium tragedies from the away section during today’s game at Anfield.
“The concourse in the away section was also vandalised with graffiti of a similar nature.
“We know the impact such behaviour has on the families, survivors and all those associated with such disasters.
“We are working with the relevant authorities in order to do our utmost to ensure these chants are eradicated from football altogether.”
