Liverpool bosses have bowed to fan pressure over the controversial new third strip and banned the colour blue from Anfield.
In an amazing U-turn, the club hierarchy has now ditched the much-criticised kit and everything blue from the stadium, including players with blue eyes.
First out of the door was club captain Steven Gerrard for sporting what manager Kenny Dalglish branded “Everton eyes.”
“After careful consideration we have decided to back the fans and banish blue from Liverpool,” said the Kop boss.
“There is no place for blue in this club and that includes those hateful Everton eyes sported by at least nine of the first team squad.
“Steven was first out of the door, but credit to him, he recognised the seriousness of the situation and personally asked me to terminate his contract.
“Dirk Kuyt proved a little more problematical but then the foreign players don’t understand the depth of feeling against Everton at this club.”
Under new club rules, hastily written following the outcry from fans, blue cheese has been removed from the Anfield canteen, no blue films will be watched by players (unless viewed on Red Hot Dutch), and pop band Blue have received a lifetime ban from the stadium.
Liverpool’s today released a new third strip which features no blue whatsoever. The bright pink kit with orange flowered shorts, sporting a cerise trim will retail at £45.99.
