A Liverpool fan was seen being told to put away an Irish flag when entering Anfield in their Champions League tie with Rangers.

During the game a Liverpool fan was pictured having a Celtic flag removed from them. While it may be viewed as heavy handed, recent events have shown this may be a good idea.

The two clubs are well known for their differences when it comes to issues that divides the British public. A prime example can be seen in the death of Queen Elizabeth.

Rangers defied UEFA rules and sang the National Anthem, while Liverpool were appealed to show full respect in a moment’s silence, due to their views towards the British government.

Despite UEFA's warnings, the club did not receive any sanctions, while Celtic received a hefty fine for their display against the Queen.

In May, several arrests of Rangers fans were made as fans of the club clashed with Frankfurt fans at the Europa League final.
