Liverpool Football Club has called the homophobic chants made by some of its supporters at last weekend’s game against Chelsea “inappropriate and offensive”.


Responding to the chants of ‘Chelsea rent boys’, Liverpool said in a statement: “The club is concerned about a chant from some of our fans, specifically referencing Chelsea, as inappropriate and offensive.

“We would urge all Liverpool supporters to respect each other and stop such chants as they do not reflect the inclusivity that the club stands for.


“As a proud member of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme, we are committed to LGBT equality across all areas of the club, and have contacted them and our own affiliated LGBT group Kop Outs for further support.”
