The Reds star might come in for punishment after appearing to operate his mobile device behind the wheel

Liverpool have alerted the Merseyside Police about a viral video of Mohamed Salah using his mobile phone while driving.

In a footage circulating Twitter - presumed to be taken after the striker had led his team to a 4-0 victory over West Ham United on Sunday afternoon - the Egypt international was filmed using his phone behind the wheel in traffic.

Fans, including kids, were jostling for the forward's attention, which he paid none. Salah continued on his device as he wheeled away from the traffic.

However, Liverpool, via a spokesperson, said that they have made the police aware of the situation; one believed to have prompted their tweet.

The club will not make further comment on the matter as they would deal with the issue 'internally.'
