Roy Evans has praised Liverpool for listening to fans.
Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans has praised the club for listening to fans who were upset with proposed ticket price increases.
Supporters made their feelings clear about the cost of tickets rising to £77 per game, by walking out of Anfield in the 77th minute against Sunderland in their Premier League clash.
Liverpool owners FSG have since apologised to fans, issuing a statement on the club's official website containing the words: "We got it wrong."
They have added that they received the message, and have implemented a price freeze, with the highest priced ticket remaining at £59.
Ex-Reds boss Roy Evans used Twitter to praise the owners for their U-turn, and commend fans for making their voices heard.

Let hope now this is the beginning of something that will see all clubs work together to keep ticket prices fair and affordable.— ROY EVANS (@Roy_Evo) February 10, 2016
Evans had given his backing to the protest at the weekend, voicing his belief that the fans are the football club's most important asset.
Liverpool Fans have every right to protest today, they've always stood up for what they believe in. LFC wouldn't be what it is without them.— ROY EVANS (@Roy_Evo) February 6, 2016
The actions of Liverpool fans is likely to inspire supporters at other clubs into attempting to make a difference in order to keep ticket prices affordable.
