Liverpool condemn homophobic chanting aimed at Billy Gilmour

During the Premier League game at Carrow Road, Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour was the target of alleged homophobic shouting from a group of Liverpool fans.

The midfielder who is on loan from Chelsea was a subject of alleged homophobic chanting

During Liverpool's 3-0 win at Carrow Road, reported homophobic shouting was directed against Norwich midfielder Billy Gilmour.

Liverpool football club has condemned those actions by some fans and pledge them to refrain from this act


It was a winning start to the new season thanks to goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah, but Gilmour-the on-loan Chelsea midfielder-was allegedly verbally abused by a section of Liverpool fans throughout the victory.

"The chant is unpleasant and inappropriate-a message we have frequently communicated alongside Kop Outs," stated an official Liverpool tweet after the game.

"We ask supporters to remember the club's inclusive ideals and not to use it in the future."

"Great result today tainted by homophobic chanting by some of our fans targeting Chelsea loanee Billy Gilmour," Kop Outs, a Liverpool LGBT+ action organization, wrote on Twitter, condemning individuals who allegedly indulged in such shouts.

"If you can't support without resorting to bigoted nonsense, you don't understand YNWA."

The alleged incident happened hours after Derby's Championship defeat at Peterborough was overshadowed by homophobic and racist charges from a minority of away fans.

This racial abuse has to stop, it's killing football...
