Shrewsbury condemn 'vile and offensive chanting' about Hillsborough at Anfield

Shrewsbury Town has condemned a group of their fans for what they've called 'vile and offensive chanting' at Anfield.

Videos have emerged on social media of a group of Shrewsbury supporters chanting about the 1989 Hillsborough disaster during their FA Cup Third Round 4-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday.

The club says this was a small minority of the travelling group.

A statement from the League One club on Monday said;

"Shrewsbury Town Football Club is disgusted and appalled to see and hear the reports on social media about the vile and offensive chanting and behaviour of a very small minority of our 'supporters' yesterday.

"These people do not represent our Club in any way shape or form and we are liaising with West Mercia Police to try and identify those responsible who will in turn liaise with Merseyside Police.

"If any supporters have any information that might assist us in identifying those responsible, they can contact the Club confidentially and we will use the information as part of our investigations with the Police authorities."

Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had high praise for Shrewsbury in a football perspective following the game.

The visitors went into a 1-0 lead early on at Anfield and it looked like a cup upset could be on the cards until Klopp's side equalised and went on to score another three.

The German coach was impressed with the opposition after what's been a tough week for them.

"Very, very difficult for different reasons.

"So, this was the team we could line up today and the boys did really well in a difficult game, which became even more difficult when we conceded for 1-0.

"But the boys reacted well, put in a really proper shift, and it's so difficult because setting up a team, starting training again on Friday and then involving all these young kids.

"They are all really good footballers, there's no doubt about that, we are not in doubt about that, so that's all good.

"But it makes it really tricky, especially when you have to play and break down a low block, which Shrewsbury, rightly so, did today."
