Reacting to the news on Twitter, Carragher said: "What an embarrassment we've become @LFC think of all the people who have come before us at this club who would be equally embarrassed as well. #SuperLeague"

That sentiment was repeated by supporters union Spirit of Shankly, who stated: "Embarrassing as fan representatives we are appalled & completely oppose this decision.
