Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp put the disappointment of their Champions League final defeat to one side as the Reds celebrated their domestic cup triumphs with an open-top bus parade through the city on Sunday.

Liverpool were beaten 1-0 by Real Madrid at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday, with Vinicius Jr's second-half goal securing a record-extending 14th European Cup triumph for the Spanish champions.

Less than 24 hours later, Liverpool were back on Merseyside to hold on bus parade through the city to celebrate their FA Cup and Carabao Cup wins from earlier this season.

Despite the defeat to Madrid being so fresh in the memory, thousands of Liverpool fans turned out to welcome the team home.

During the parade, a slightly tipsy Klopp expressed his love for the club's supporters after a frustrating end to the season.

After being thanked by LFC TV presenter Peter McDowall for his work throughout the campaign, Klopp replied: "You're welcome!

"And I love you all. And I'm not drunk… not even a little bit.

"It's just emotion.."

Fans have praised Klopp for his positivity, with one supporter commenting on Twitter: "We should all aspire to be like Klopp. His attitude is incredible."

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson also expressed his gratitude to the club's supporters for turning out in such huge numbers, less than 24 hours after the disappointment of the defeat to Madrid.

"When you don't win the final you worry about how you'll be received, how many people will show up. That was in the back of our minds," admitted Robertson.

“But my god, what a turnout. Like I said, best fans in the world."

Klopp, meanwhile, is confident Liverpool will bounce back from Saturday's defeat and mount another serious challenge for silverware next season.

Speaking after the loss, he said: "These boys played an outstanding season.

"The two competitions we didn’t win were by the smallest margin – one point, 1-0.

"[Manchester] City were one point better [in the Premier League] and Madrid were one goal better, that says nothing about us.

"This is a fantastic group and we will go again."
