01, 23 According to the latest report by Ian Doyle, editor-in-chief of the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool’s home stadium is safe.
Field officials ejected some visiting fans during the game against Chelsea.
The Echo revealed that a total of 16 fans were directly ejected from the stadium for shouting offensive slogans mocking the Hillsborough tragedy.
It is understood each fan was initially warned by management not to repeat the offensive lyrics and was escorted from the stadium after failing to comply and repeated warnings.
Liverpool will work with relevant departments to face these issues together.
Meanwhile, the Reds saw their game against Chelsea as a success in their ongoing effort to banish homophobic chants at Anfield.
There have been two separate and isolated incidents outside the pitch before kick-off, involving home fans, and both have been arrested and are now being dealt with by Merseyside Police.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp then met with Kop Outs founder Paul Amman and strongly voiced the need for a change of attitude, with the club’s Red Together campaign also working with Kop Outs and other fans.
