PHOTO: Liverpool stars pose after training in tribute to fans

Liverpool Supporters

Liverpool's senior stars posed for a photo to mark the start of a unique campaign.

Liverpool’s players have come up with a unique tribute to their supporters in memory of the 96 Liverpool fans who lost their lives at the Hillsborough disaster.

Key members of the first team squad, including captain Steven Gerrard, posed for a photo holding Liverpool scarves aloft, similarly to how fans traditionally greet the start of any game at Anfield.

The club are asking supporters to each donate a scarf they own for the Hillsborough Memorial Service in mid-April, which will be laid out on the Anfield pitch in a number 96 shape.

“We already receive so much support from people worldwide, but if we could create what would be a fantastic symbol of unity on the pitch from donated scarves from across the world, this would be a truly moving way of bringing the world together for the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough,” said Hillsborough Family Support Group chair Margaret Aspinall.
