Liverpool Players And Jurgen Klopp Mocked With 'Crying Face' Snapchat Filter After Champions League Final Defeat

Rival fans have wasted no time in rubbing salt into Liverpool's wounds after their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp's side were beaten 1-0 at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday, with Vinicius Jr's second-half goal separating the two sides.

It is the second time in recent years that Madrid have beaten Liverpool in the final of European football's top club competition, following their 3-1 win over the Reds in the 2018 final in Kiev.

Liverpool's players were understandably dejected after the final whistle in Paris.

Rival fans, on the other hand, were delighted by Liverpool's misfortune and were keen to twist the knife on social media.

One supporter used Snapchat's 'crying face' filter, which has gone viral in recent weeks, to pile on the misery for Reds fans.

They used the filter to alter the expression on the faces of the Liverpool squad as they went t collecting their runners-up medals from UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

Hilarious for fans of rival clubs. For Liverpool supporters, less so. Watch the video below:

Speaking after the match, Liverpool defender Andy Robertson admitted his teammates were "devastated" by the defeat to Madrid.

"The dressing room is quiet, devastated. That is what happens when you don’t win finals," he told BT Sport.

"We had chances, came up against an unbelievable keeper. Being honest though, we could have played better.

"In the second half we didn't start great and they got hold of the game."

But his mood was boosted on Sunday after thousands of Liverpool supporters turned out to welcome home the squad, who held an open top bus parade around the city to celebrate their FA Cup and Carabao Cup wins from earlier this season.

"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."
