Liverpool fans protest ahead of Newcastle draw: 'Spirit of Shanks, Not Greedy Yanks'

Liverpool fans protested against their club's owners ahead of today's draw with Newcastle United.

Supporters descended on Anfield on Saturday morning ahead of the lunchtime kick off.

Banners displaying messages such as 'Spirit of Shanks, Not Greedy Yanks' and 'FSG rats' were placed for the Reds' team coach to see on route to the ground.

Liverpool's American owner John W Henry is refusing to sell the club amid the European Super League fiasco despite widespread calls for him to get out.

But despite their anger towards the chief, fans cheered loudly for the team as the coach pulled up for the clash after skipper Jordan Henderson spoke out against the ESL breakaway.
