Liverpool Fans Invade The Pitch After Beating Tranmere In Pre Season Friendly
Liverpool fans ran onto the pitch following their teams 6-0 win over Tranmere in a pre-season friendly, with many of them trying to get a picture with Champions League hero Divock Origi.
It's not that long ago that Liverpool fans watched their team become champions of Europe for the sixth time when they beat Spurs 2-0 in the final of last season's Champions League.
With that in mind you'd have thought that fans wouldn't be too bothered about beating a newly promoted League One team, after all it's far below their usual standard, but Reds' fans still invaded the pitch at Prenton Park after their team beat Tranmere Rovers 6-0 in a pre season friendly:
Before the Champions League semi final second leg turnaround against Barcelona there's few Liverpool fans who would have given Divock Origi a single thought.
However after the Belgian's brace at Anfield and goal in the final it seems that he's become an instant hero at the club, and he was the most popular player for fans on the pitch at full time.

Fans of other clubs though weren't too impressed, with some labelling it embarrassing:

6-0 pre season win at Tranmere uno
Deserves a pitch invasion. Flippin tools https://t.co/PSb73XVFC9
Origi was on the scoresheet, adding the fifth goal on the hour mark, with Nathaniel Clyne, Rhian Brewster, with two, Curtis Jones and Steven Gerrard's cousin Bobby Duncan also bagging goals.
Jurgen Klopp's side next face Bradford City on Sunday before going on their US tour where they will face Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Sporting and Napoli.
They'll finally take on Lyon in Geneva before returning to England to face Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on August 4th in the traditional season curtain raiser, everyone loves a cliche right?
Will the Reds be doing any pitch invasions at the end of next season?
