Liverpool have uploaded a wonderful video of the reception their fans gave to Newcastle United midfielder Jonas Gutierrez when he came of the bench during their 2-0 defeat to the Reds on Monday night.
Goals from Joe Allen and Raheem Sterling gave Brendan Rodgers’ men all three points, but perhaps the biggest cheers of the evening came when Gutierrez came on a second half substitute for Gabriel Obertan.
Having recently been given the all clear from testicular cancer, the Argentine is slowly beginning to make a return to first team action, albeit from the bench, and Reds fans roused themselves on Monday to give him a more than welcome reception.
However, the defeat now sees Newcastle on a terrible run of five straight losses, and their only saving grace is that they are still nine points clear of the drop.
The result did catapult Liverpool up to fifth, though, but their attention will now be turned to this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final clash with Aston Villa at Wembley.
