Now, this news doesn’t seem to have gone down too well with the Liverpool fans on Twitter, and you can understand why.

Tierney angered both Jürgen Klopp and Jordan Henderson with a poor decision made in the aforementioned draw against Manchester United.

Thiago Alcântara had just played a delightful through ball into Sadio Mané’s path, with only 55 of the 60 seconds added on by Tierney played.

However, the 40-year-old blew for half-time with the Liverpool No.10 about to be through on goal.

After full-time, Henderson called the decision a ‘very strange‘ one, while Klopp was visibly confused on the touchline as talkSPORT show.

Graeme Souness also described the call as ‘frustrating‘ when speaking on Sky Sports at half-time.
