Some Liverpool fans mocked Seamus Coleman ahead of the Merseyside derby yesterday after the Donegal native suffered a horror leg break while on Ireland duty.

Coleman is facing a lengthy period out of the game after suffering a double leg fracture following a challenge by Neil Taylor in Ireland's nil-all draw with Wales last week.

The Killybegs full-back has been inundated with message of support since the gruesome incident, including from Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

"I would like to pass on my regards and best wishes to Seamus Coleman, who due to very unfortunate circumstances is not available to play today," Klopp wrote in his programme notes for yesterday's 3-1 win over Everton.

"I do not know him personally, but as a football supporter I love his character, his positive approach to the game and his commitment to his club.

"There is a lot to admire about this player and it is his personal qualities that will help him as he recovers from this setback and returns to the game."

A video has emerged of Liverpool fans taunting Coleman over his unfortunate injury.

They are filmed singing: "How's your leg, Seamus Coleman? How's your leg? How's your leg, I pray? How's your leg? How's your leg, Seamus Coleman? I hope you never play again."
