Gary Neville quick to revel in Liverpool's Champions League misery in Kiev as he trolls Kop fans

Manchester United legend Gary Neville didn't waste any time revelling in Liverpool's Champions League misery, as he thanked Gareth Bale for denying the Reds a sixth European title after his second half wonder show in the final.

Bale came off the bench to inspire Real Madrid to a 3-1 win that shattered Liverpool's dreams, as Real Madrid won a 13th European crown on a drama-filled night in Kiev. 

Neville had joked that he might have been tempted to charter a private plane to escape from the Liverpool celebrations if they had won the final, so he was clearly delighted to see Jurgen Klopp's men come up short at the final hurdle of their Champions League adventure.
