The Tweets after Liverpool’s Gerrard understands fans booing Man United’s Rio Ferdinand

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has courted plenty of abuse on Sunday after commenting on the rights of England fans to boo Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand.

Gerrard said:

I think the fans have shown their frustration about Rio not being here. They’re entitled to their opinion, they pay good money to come over here. We all wanted Rio here because he’s a good player and he would have helped us over these two games. But he’s made his decision and we have to respect that.

Following Gerrard’s semi-controversial comments, Twitter has seen a torrent of abuse levelled at the Reds’ midfielder.

A handful of the best/worst tweets can be read below.
