Rivalries put aside on 28th anniversary of Hillsborough disaster

Rivalries were put aside as clubs from around the country paid their respects to the 96 supporters who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster 28 years ago today.

Joining supporters in paying their respects, tributes were made by former Liverpool players and staff, and clubs from around the country.

Many former Liverpool players marked the anniversary on social media:

Everton, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund were among the clubs to pay their respects:



Meanwhile, Everton moved to ban the S*n newspaper after comments published by columnist and former editor Kelvin Mackenzie this week:

Yesterday Everton Football Club informed The Sun newspaper it was banned from Goodison Park, the USM Finch Farm training ground and all areas of the Club’s operation.

Whilst we will not dignify any journalist with a response to appalling and indefensible allegations, the newspaper has to know that any attack on this City, either against a much respected community or individual, is not acceptable.
