These were the best jokes and memes to be found on Twitter in response to Simon Mignolet holding the ball for an astonishing 20 seconds against Bordeaux.

The Liverpool goalkeeper’s bizarre retention of the ball was over three times as long as the 6 seconds permitted, so he was penalised by the award of a free kick to Bordeaux inside his penalty area.

Henri Saivet then compounded the Belgian’s embarrassment by firing home the resulting free kick in style.

I said to Simon Mignolet You can only hold onto the ball for 6 seconds. He said I know, James. I said It's a good job I scored that penalty.

At least Simon Mignolet cost Liverpool a goal in a creative way this week.

In fairness to Mignolet, it's not often he holds onto the ball, so he wanted to make the most of it.
