The news that Martin Skrtel has signed a new three-year deal to remain at Liverpool is another arguably positive step forward for the Reds in their attempts to build for 2015/16.

The decision to renew the Slovak’s terms were not so unanimously praised by supporters, however.

Here’s the best of the reaction from social media.
