Liverpool fans presented a banner blasting outgoing Premier League chairman Richard Scudamore at their game against Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon.
The Premier League caused a massive stir by announcing that they would be paying the outgoing chief a bonus of £5m – fans thought that this money would be much better spent investing into grassroots football.
There was no better time to make the statement than just before kick-off at today’s game given the fact that Scudamore is actually present at Vicarage Road this afternoon.
Check out the banner below:

Big banner from the fans protesting Scudamore's £5m pay-off. Too right.

The Premier League’s decision to award the bonus has certainly come under backlash and rightly so.
The travelling Liverpool fans are a credit to their club and they have continued their rich history in campaigning for justice with their efforts today.
