Liverpool do Hillsborough victims proud

It was an emotional day at Anfield as Liverpool remembered the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy.

96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death during their side's FA Cup quarter-final clash with Nottingham Forest after police made the decision to allow too many fans into the away section in Hillsborough that day.

As I watched today's service at Anfield, I couldn't help but feel a huge sense of admiration for the people of Liverpool. The two minute silence that marked the occasion was incredible. Not a sound for the 120 seconds.

Despite last night's exit from the Champions League, the Liverpool fans gave Rafa Benitez' men an unbelievable reception as they took their seats for the service. You would excpect nothing less from fans who are undoubtedly among the best in the world.

I am sure the friends and families of those who died in Sheffield 20 years ago will have been delighted with how the day went.
