Cotterill hails 'gentlemen' Liverpool ace van Dijk after visiting Shrewsbury dressing room

Shrewsbury Town manager Steve Cotterill was full of praise for Liverpool center back Virgil Van Dijk after their game.

The Reds defeated Shrewsbury 4-1 in the FA Cup, despite the League One side taking the lead in the game.

Van Dijk apparently went into the Shrewsbury dressing room at the end of the game, brought in his shirt, and congratulated the team on their display.

"Virgil came into our dressing room and congratulated everyone and brought his shirt in," Cotterill told reporters.

"Not only is he a top player - he is a gentleman and it was a very good experience for our players today."
