Man Utd fans sing 'murderers' chants at Anfield

The visiting supporters repeatedly taunted their counterparts about the Hillsborough and Heysel stadium disasters during the Europa League tie on Merseyside on Thursday
Manchester United supporters left a stain on their club’s first-ever continental meeting with Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday night by repeatedly chanting about the Hillsborough and Heysel stadium disasters.

The songs did not stem from a small minority in the away end, with the taunts very clearly audible inside the stadium and drawing boos from the home crowd.

Liverpool fans sang a chorus of "Fergie’s right, your fans are sh*te", to which the United section responded: "The Sun was right, you’re murderers."
The chant is a reference to the infamous - and inaccurate - front-page story in The Sun claiming Liverpool supporters were responsible for the Hillsborough disaster.

It was followed by a string of other unacceptable songs about the Hillsborough and Heysel tragedies.

The chants are the latest episode in a long line of what Liverpool fans' website The Anfield Wrap termed "terrace tragedy tennis" between the fanbases of English football’s greatest rivals.
