Jordan Henderson's Reaction To Being Booed By Newcastle Fans Was Priceless, He Loved It

Jordan Henderson's Reaction To Being Booed By Newcastle Fans Was Priceless, He Loved It

Jordan Henderson was loudly booed by Newcastle fans due to his Sunderland links.

Jordan Henderson absolutely loved the boos from Newcastle supporters during Liverpool's 1-0 win away at St James' Park.

The Liverpool skipper is a boyhood Sunderland fan and came through the ranks at the Wearside club before making 79 appearances.

Sunderland are of course Newcastle's big rivals up in the North East and so Henderson was met by a typically lively reception every time he touched the ball.

Then, when he was replaced by Fabinho in the second half, loud boos rang around the stadium from the 50,000 home fans.

Henderson clapped off his travelling away fans and couldn't help but crack a wide smile in response to the jeers and whistles.

Henderson was involved in a hilarious moment in the first half when he assumed free-kick duties in the absence of Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The England defender was rested for the game and watched Henderson hit a set-piece wide and into the stands behind the goal from around 25 yards out.

The cameras panned to the Alexander-Arnold and his reaction was priceless. While on the bench, 23-year-old couldn't help but laugh at the effort.

He even leaned over to watch a replay of the wayward strike and both he and second choice goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher were in hysterics.

Liverpool won 1-0 courtesy of a first-half goal from Naby Keita and moved to the top of the table - at least until Manchester City's trip to Leeds United this evening.
