He told The Daily Post: "When I walked in it was probably the worst I'd known it in all my time at the club.

"To be in there that night was a real low. Everyone was devastated. There was just silence, no-one said anything.

"Luis [Suarez] was in tears and I felt so sorry him for him because he had given so much for the team.

"Everyone had worked so hard to put the club in a position to win the title.

"There had been so many highs during the season and there was a real sense of togetherness in the squad.

"But with that result everyone knew it was over. Palace burst the bubble and brought Liverpool crashing back down to earth."
