Time to silence the idiots: Rodgers demands end of vile Hillsborough and Munich chants
Enough is enough: Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wants an end to vile chanting

The club and their fans have had to endure chants from rivals supporters about the events at Hillsborough, although some Liverpool fans are not entirely without blame in a similar situation, as songs about Manchester United's Munich air disaster have been sung in the past.

Rodgers hopes such chants will now cease in the light of what was made public on Wednesday.

'I speak as a human being and I don't ever like to hear anything like that, whatever club it is, that associates with other people's tragedies and death,' said the Reds boss.

'Unfortunately you have a very small percentage of idiots at any club who will always try to smear another club's reputation.

'Of course, it is obvious these are chants that no-one wants to hear about any club.

'Unfortunately there are that minority of supporters who will maybe disappoint but let's hope we can all move on and we can all learn from this whole process.'

Rodgers said the smear campaign which had been perpetrated against the fans was something which had gained a global foothold and he sympathised with what the families had faced up to.

'There is no doubt the propaganda at the time, if you were outside the city of Liverpool and its people, planted seeds throughout the country and the world,' added the Northern Irishman, who was among a number of club representatives who attended a vigil in the city on Wednesday night.
