Manchester United Fans Taunt Simon Mignolet With Steven Gerrard Chant
Manchester United mercilessly taunted former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet with a Steven Gerrard chant after his slip.
Mignolet's Club Brugge fell to an embarrassing 5-0 defeat to Manchester United and the Belgium's misery was compounded in the second half when he slipped which prompted a savage chant.
The stopper slipped after taking a goal kick as Old Trafford erupted with a huge cheer before singing: "Are you Gerrard in disguise?"
'Are you Gerrard in disguise?' the Stretford End asks Mignolet.

Of course, United fans are referencing Gerrard's infamous slip at Anfield against Chelsea to allow Demba Ba run through on goal and score.
