The Barcelona ace scored against the Reds of Jurgen Klopp at Camp Nou and celebrated passionately.
The Reds travelled to Camp Nou for their Champions League semi-final first leg but were truly put to the sword by a Lionel Messi inspired Blaugrana.
Suarez, lining up front with Messi and with fellow Liverpool old-boy Philippe Coutinho also in the XI, opened the scoring on 26 minutes with a flick beyond the reach of Alisson Becker.
The Uruguay ace proudly celebrated his goal, and after the break, Messi weighed in with a brace, the latter strike a superbly taken free kick, which leaves Liverpool with a mountain to climb in the second leg.
After the game, Suarez took to Twitter with a one-word message:
Needless to say, some Liverpool fans were not too impressed to see their one-time hero stick the boot in, and made their feelings known:

Can’t believe I used to worship you.— AllezAllezAllez (@LiverpoolSzn19) May 1, 2019
Others, meanwhile, were more pragmatic about it:
Suarez is Suarez. We loved it when he got up everyone’s noses when he was at LFC, he is just doing the same for Barca now. I don’t have a problem with that at all. Hope we can get revenge next week & put him out but if not then got to say the clinical team won & good luck.— Derek McLean (@DerektheKopRed) May 1, 2019
Agreed. He might kiss the badge when hes at your club but Luis is 1st and foremost a winner and will not care who he walks over to do so. It is what makes him so good and so bad at the same time. If you expected anything else you are naive.— Lance Walsh (@Fridge197) May 2, 2019
Have to say it did hurt to see u score against us but it was a nice goal— Tina (@Tina39960582) May 1, 2019
