Players, clubs and managers pay tribute after Hillsborough verdicts

The justice delivered through Tuesday’s Hillsborough inquest verdict brought the footballing world together to pay respect to the 96.

On Tuesday morning, a jury of six women and three men ruled that the deaths of 96 people at Hillsborough stadium on 15 April 1989 were unlawful, bringing justice to a 27-year fight to clear supporters’ names.

Instead, police and ambulance workers are deemed culpable for “gross negligence,” with the crush that ensued from overcrowding leading to avoidable casualties.

For the families, survivors and others affected by the tragedy, Tuesday brought something of a resolution, and this extended to the wider footballing world, with many taking to social media to pay tribute.
