Demba Ba has hit back at Liverpool fans who urged new signing Mohamed Salah to delete an old Tweet in which he displayed support for his former Chelsea teammate.
A section of Liverpool supporters have been scrolling through Salah's social media and have discovered a Tweet that they were far from pleased with.
Steven Gerrard's infamous slip in 2014 against Chelsea remains etched into the club's recent history.
With half-time approaching, the Liverpool legend slipped and allowed Ba to score the opener in a 2-0 win at Anfield.
The defeat severely dented Liverpool's hopes of winning the Premier League for the first time ever and Salah had a pretty good view given that he was a starter in the Chelsea side that day.
And what appeared to be an innocent-looking message of support for Ba when the Senegalise striker suffered one of the worst leg breaks in recent memory, really irked some of the Anfield faithfuls.
Back in July 2016, Salah posted the message 'Get well soon bro.'
An image of Ba celebrating that famous goal against Liverpool on 27 April 2014 went along with the words, and fans who dug up the old Tweet told the Egyptian winger to delete it.
Aware of some of the backlash Salah has been the subject of, Ba has hit back at Liverpool fans who went after their new man.
"If this is true than [sic], i [sic] can see how wik [sic] those people are mentally .Mohamed i [sic] love you bro for the support throughout my injury." Ba wrote.

Are Liverpool fans being incredibly petty here given that Salah had no connection to Liverpool whatsoever at the time?
