Liverpool paid touching tributes to injured fan Sean Cox ahead of their Premier League match against Stoke City on Saturday.
The 53-year-old from Dunboyne in Meath remains in a critical condition in hospital having been attacked by Roma fans before Liverpool’s Champions League match at Anfield on Tuesday night, for which charges have since been brought against the perpetrators.
Liverpool had sought out a St. Peter’s of Dunboyne jersey to hang in their dressing room – and after one was source, the Reds made good on their promise by hanging it up with the players’ shirts on Saturday.
