Given thanks Man City, Liverpool fans for support

Shay Given thanked both Manchester City and Liverpool fans for their support on Saturday.

All sections of the ground gave City's Irish keeper a great reception at Anfield after his World Cup heartbreak last week.

Given told mcfc.co.uk: "I think the Kop is well known for giving goalkeepers a good reception but Saturday was even more special after what happened on Wednesday. I want to thank them and our fans for the support they gave me.

"It was an emotional week for me, it would have been nice to win the game on Saturday but it was not a bad point away at Liverpool. I had not slept much since the Wednesday night, but something like that does give you a lift, and the support of all the lads at the club has been great as well."
