John Aldridge has said he felt sickened by the chants about the Hillsborough and Heysel disasters sun by Manchester United fans at Sunday’s FA Youth Cup tie at Anfield.

United brought with them a following of 300 or so supporters for the high tempered tie in which United eventually won 3-2.

Three United fans were arrested and six ejected from Anfield, after the series of shameful chants.

Aldridge, who was in the Liverpool team the day of the Hillsborough Disaster in 1989, said, “I have never seen anything like that before at a youth game and I never want to see anything like it again. It was disgusting.

“You get used to banter from United fans when they come to Anfield but to hear those songs about Heysel and Hillsborough was just horrible.

He added, “The level of abuse was absolutely sickening.

“There was evidently a group who had just come to cause problems and I felt sorry for the families in the Manchester United end who just wanted to watch a game of football.”
