Liverpool fans are unimpressed with their move for Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez.

The Mail on Sunday says Liverpool fans have rounded on the club's decision-makers for considering Wigan's Martinez as a managerial successor to Kenny Dalglish.

Supporters abused managing director Ian Ayre at a race meeting at Aintree on Friday night and chanted the name of previous Anfield boss Rafael Benitez.

The general response from the club's followers to the prospect of Martinez being appointed has been underwhelming, and that is a concern after Roy Hodgson's ill-fated time at Anfield.
