West Bromwich Albion forward Charlie Austin has responded to a Southampton fan on Twitter after being criticised for wearing a Liverpool shirt.

Back on June 1, Austin donned on a Liverpool shirt and posted the photo on Twitter.

The 30-year-old forward was showing his support for the Reds ahead of their Champions League final against Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

 

The former Queens Park Rangers star further stated on Twitter that he is a Liverpool fan and made it clear that he was committed to Southampton.

Austin subsequently left Southampton for West Brom in the Championship in the summer transfer window a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £4 million.

In a recent interview with former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore, the forward reflected on his decision to publicly back the Reds.

One Southampton fan has hit back at the 30-year-old, and he seems amused, as shown in the following post on Twitter.

Austin has made six starts and one substitute appearance in the Championship for West Brom so far this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
