Liverpool paid a special tribute to injured supporter Sean Cox after securing a place in the Champions League final on Wednesday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s side suffered a 4-2 defeat against Roma on the night, but won 7-6 on aggregate to make the final of Europe’s premier club competition for the eighth time in their history and first since 2007.
After the match, Jordan Henderson asked a steward to borrow a banner of support for Sean from the crowd. He and the other players then posed with it – the latest in a long line of club tributes for the Dunboyne who was attacked outside Anfield before the first leg last week.

A Dunboyne GAA jersey was hung in the Anfield dressing room on Saturday before Liverpool’s clash with Stoke City, for which Henderson wrote to the club to thank them for facilitating by providing the shirt.
Sean remains in a critical condition in hospital having been set upon by Roma ultras, for which charges of assault have since been brought against the perpetrators.
