Amid the exciting recent links to the likes of Mario Gotze and Inaki Williams, a strange rumour has bubbled up to the surface this weekend linking Liverpool to Shane Long.
However, Reds fans aren’t too excited about that one, and many have taken to Twitter to express their rage at the striker being mentioned in the same breath as their prestigious club.
Some have a quiet acceptance, while others really are not happy, and we’ve collected some of the best reactions to post below.

Caulker AND Shane Long? Does the Liverpool transfer committee only scout Southampton players?

Not signing Inaki Williams for £15.3m but signing Shane Long for £8m would literally be the most Liverpool thing you could possibly do #LFC

It's amazing that people continue to sign Shane Long based on his bi-yearly good performance against someone decent plus about 2 goals.

Lallana, Lambert, Lovren, Caulker, now Shane Long. #LFC have given Southampton £60M for cast offs they didn't want. Mind blown…
