On Tuesday they were fined ?35,000 - half of which was suspended for a two-year probationary period - for illicit chanting by supporters during April's two-legged Europa League clash against Manchester United, who were also hit with a similar penalty.

There was a further fine of ?13,000 for the offences of setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects, crowd disturbances and a late kick-off.

Liverpool still have disciplinary charges outstanding in relation to more fireworks offences and crowd disturbances relating to last week's Europa League final against Sevilla.
