Sports minister Richard Caborn will on Tuesday tell Michel Platini that UEFA officials should stop pointing the finger at Liverpool fans over the problems at the Champions League final in Athens.

UEFA president Platini is to give Caborn the report on the problems caused by ticketless fans at last month´s final against AC Milan. It is expected to say there have been 25 incidents involving Liverpool fans away from home since 2003 and most away supporters do not cause any trouble at all.

Ahead of the Brussels meeting, Caborn said: "It´s time to stop playing the blame game and see how we can stop these things happening again. Rather than spend any more time apportioning blame and pointing fingers we need to work out solutions."
