Liverpool supporters met with "Murderers" banner on arrival in Manchester

On a lovely day for a huge match of football, once again some fans have attempted to ruin it with appalling gestures. Upon their arrival to Manchester for today's Europa League Round of 16 second leg, Liverpool supporters were greeted with an atrocious banner filled with hate.

Hanging from a bridge on the M602 was a banner that read "Murderers". It's obviously an extremely hurtful message in reference to the much-talked about Hillsborough and Heysel tragedies. Manchester United supporters were reported to have sung terrible songs in regards to that horrible day in the away leg at Anfield in their team's 2-0 loss, but weren't penalized by UEFA.

While it's impossible to prove who actually hung the banner, this is now visual evidence of hateful rhetortic toward Liverpool's fans and the club. UEFA must step up and take some sort of action after this ridiculous incident.
