Liverpool fans, from the Lord Mayor of the city to the leader of the supporters´ group, have attacked UEFA´s declaration that the Anfield club have the worst fans in Europe.

The claims will come in a UEFA report to be handed to the Government in the wake of the shameful scenes in Athens at the Champions League final when Liverpool fans were accused of stealing tickets from their fellow supporters, charging the gates to get into the ground without tickets and causing trouble outside the stadium which ended with tear gas being used.

But Liverpool´s Lord Mayor Paul Clark has hit back in the Liverpool Daily Post, saying: "UEFA appear to be trying to avoid the blame for the disorganisation of the final. To make matters worse, instead of looking at their own faults UEFA are blaming the people of Liverpool. Saying this is typical of Liverpool fans is unfair and reflects badly on the image of the city."
