Liverpool have seemingly escaped the prospect of playing a behind-closed-doors fixture in Europe next season, instead being given a fine by UEFA.
But while the home players and staff were given a memorable reception, the away team’s bus was targeted by a handful, throwing objects and cracking a window.
Those charges included:
• Setting off of fireworks
• Throwing of objects
• Acts of damage
• Crowd disturbances
There had been fears that the disciplinary board would move to punish the Reds as a result, by making them play a game in Europe next season behind closed doors.
That would impact heavily in a financial sense, given the Reds’ improved matchday revenue since the Main Stand was rebuilt, as well as in a sporting sense.
UEFA have instead fined the club €20,000 (£17,500).
