There were shock scenes in the Champions League at Anfield as Liverpool’s fans stopped singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” in order to boo Man City’s Raheem Sterling.

Reds supporters staged an unprecedented interval during one rendition of the club anthem as they went on to record a 3-0 quarter-final first leg victory.

After initial confusion, Liverpool fans halted singing towards the end of the second “walk on” in the chorus in order to acknowledge Sterling’s receipt of the ball.

Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Ste, a Liverpool fan from Liverpool, said it was extraordinary.

He said: “It was extraordinary.

“I don’t think anyone realised you could pause ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, so it was quite the illicit thrill to break that particular taboo.

“Thank you to Raheem Sterling. We promise not to smash your bit of the bus next time.”
