Liverpool and Chelsea condemn further homophobic chants


The Premier League clubs Liverpool and Chelsea have condemned supports who sung homophobic chants during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield. Chelsea loanee Billy Gilmour was subjected to homophobic chants during this game, resulting in the Reds issuing a response.

The Liverpool's statement reads: “The club strongly condemns these actions and will be investigating all reported allegations of abusive and/or discriminatory behaviour with the relevant authorities to identify perpetrators.

LFC is committed to tackling abusive and discriminatory behaviour, which has no place in football or society. As part of its Red Together campaign, which encompasses all the club’s work on equality, diversity and inclusion, LFC strives to be the forefront of the fight against all forms of discrimination both online and in-stadium to create an inclusive environment for all.

The club would like to remind its fans of its code of conduct, which clearly outlines what it expects from all supporters visiting Anfield."

Enough is enough!!!
