Michael Owen made a return to Liverpool at the weekend to feature in a charity game against AC Milan.

The Mail report that Owen was booed by fans at Anfield as he was brought on for John Aldridge.

 

Owen has never been forgiven by fans for joining rivals Manchester United in 2009 on a free transfer after his deal at Newcastle expired.

Owen left Liverpool in 2004 to join Real Madrid. His spell in Spain lasted just one year.

The former England striker sent a message to fans after his Anfield appearance, and chose to ignore the fact he was booed.

This is not the first time Owen has received a negative reaction from Liverpool crowds, having also been jeered at a similar event last year.
