Former Liverpool striker: Manchester United fans should be “embarrassed”
Former Liverpool forward John Aldridge has blasted Manchester United for their recent antics, which saw them fly a plane over Anfield on Sunday with a banner reading “United 20 – Gerrard 0?.
Liverpool were playing their last game of the season at home to Newcastle, which they won 2-1 to finish second-place in the Premier League.
The Red Devils have had a turbulent season and were dealt another blow with the news Ferdinand will be leaving Man United.
However, Aldridge believes the tactics United fans deployed before the game were “embarrassing” and because they are worried about Liverpool.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “If I was a United fan I’d be embarrassed about that plane which flew over Anfield before kick-off on Sunday.
“They’ve just endured their worst ever Premier League season and haven’t even qualified for the Europa League. It really was laughable.
“We’ve clearly got them rattled after what’s happened this season.
“We took six points off them without conceding a goal and we’ve replaced them in the top four.
“Steven Gerrard has obviously upset them with all those goals he’s scored at Old Trafford over the years.
“They are worried and rightly so. They know we’re on the rise at a time when they are really struggling. I hope they fly plenty more planes over Anfield next season.”
Liverpool became the third side to score over 100 goals in a Premier League campaign this season.
