Liverpool fans tear into Simon Mignolet after Europa League horrorshow

Simon Mignolet may want to stay off Twitter for a while following his efforts in Liverpool's Europa League match against Bordeaux this evening.

The Belgian international, who has, let's say, had a mixed career at Anfield, was at fault for the visitors' opener at Anfield this evening as the Reds went in search of qualification for the knockout stages of the Europa League.

For reasons only he knows, Mignolet held on to the ball for what felt like an eternity but was actually about 20 seconds before hoofing the ball up field. 

He was obviously penalised for time wasting by the referee who awarded a free-kick to Liverpool's Ligue 1 opponents in the box. Then this happened.

Oh dear. It took no more than 1.6 seconds for Liverpool fans to register their disgust with their goalkeeper, with some going as far as to suggest that his time on Merseyside was up. You can see the best of the reaction below, but be warned, some of the language is a tad fruity.

Luckily for Liverpool, both James Milner and Christian Benteke were on hand to rescue their goalkeeper, with two quickfire goals to put their side back in control at Anfield.

Klopp has overseen just one defeat since taking charge of Liverpool - against Crystal Palace - and is well on course to guiding his side to the last 32 of the Europa League before their showdown against Swansea at Anfield this weekend.

Do you think Mignolet should be sold in January?
