Shrewsbury admit lodging complaint against Liverpool over FA Cup line-up

Shrewsbury Town admit they lodged a complaint to the FA against Liverpool for their FA Cup replay defeat.

The Shropshire Star says Town made the complaint back in February, claiming that Jurgen Klopp's decision to not attend the third-round replay or field first-team players, after Shrews had a mounted a two-goal comeback in the first tie, "ruined" the occasion for the League One club.

In an open letter to fans, chief executive Brian Caldwell revealed Shrewsbury lodged a complaint against the European champions for breaking FA Cup rules in not fielding their strongest team, arguing Town missed out on television revenue due to a decision not to air the replay, which Salop believe was as a result of Klopp and his players' omission.

But after the case was heard by the governing body, Liverpool have been ruled in the clear.
