Liverpool fans slate Martin Skrtel following Southampton calamity
Liverpool fans didn't hold back in their stinging criticism of Martin Skrtel on Sunday following their 3-2 defeat away at Southampton.
The Reds had been 2-0 to the good but were pegged back in the second half, with the winning goal coming from a ghastly mix-up in the Liverpool backline.
Goalkeeper Mignolet couldn't clear the ball properly, before Skrtel steamed in, upended teammate Joe Allen and looked on as Southampton exploited the space he had left to steal the win through Sadio Mané.
To say Liverpool fans gave the Slovakian centre-back both barrels feels like an understatement.

Also Martin Skrtel should be jettisoned to the moon— Ü (@ThoseScouseLads) March 20, 2016
The club should reimburse all fans for their tickets and travel costs after that, possibly using Skrtel's weekly wages.— RedRegista (@RedRegista) March 20, 2016
Hope that's the last of Skrtel in a Liverpool shirt. God awful defender.— Liverpool FC News (@LFCTransferNRS) March 20, 2016

Benteke is the reason we didn't win by more. Skrtel is the reason we lost. You can not possible blame losing on Benteke.— The Anfield Chat (@TheAnfieldChat) March 20, 2016
