Liverpool’s first-team squad laid wreaths outside Anfield to mark the 30th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster on Monday.
The players – led by manager Jürgen Klopp and captain Jordan Henderson – were present at the stadium to pay their respects to the 96 people who died as a result of a crush during the FA Cup semi-final between the Reds and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989.

Liverpool’s women’s and academy teams also visited the memorial on Monday, with all players and staff from the club holding a minute’s silence at 15.06 local time – the point at which the match was stopped.
Many other figures associated with Liverpool and the wider footballing community also paid their respects via social media.
Remembering the 96 people who died, their families and friends, the survivors whose lives are affected every day and those amazing people who have fought and continue to fight for justice 30 years on #JFT96
