LIVERPOOL, Aug 15 — Liverpool have condemned the “offensive and inappropriate” homophobic chants aimed at Norwich City midfielder Billy Gilmour during Saturday’s 3-0 Premier League win at Carrow Road.

Scotland international Gilmour, who joined Norwich on loan this season from Chelsea, was targeted by a section of Liverpool fans during the match.

The chants were called out on Twitter by ‘Kop Outs’, Liverpool’s LGBT+ Fans Group, with the Merseyside club adding: “The chant is offensive and inappropriate – a message we have repeatedly communicated alongside Kop Outs.

“We urge supporters to remember the inclusive values of the club and to refrain from using it in the future.”
