A Liverpool fan has put together a compilation highlighting what they perceived to be “bias” from Paul Tierney against them.
Jurgen Klopp outrageously claimed that Tierney has an agenda against his side following the dramatic, last-gasp 4-3 win over Spurs.
When Diogo Jota seized on Lucas Moura’s error and slotted home the 94th minute winner moments after Richarlison levelled matters, an angry Klopp celebrated in the face of fourth official John Brooks and pulled his hamstring in the process.
Klopp had been booked by Tierney in the seven-goal thriller for his reaction to a free-kick not being given on Mo Salah in the build-up to Spurs’ equaliser.
He then caused a stir with comments in a Sky Sports interview when he said, “We have history with Mr Tierney, I really don’t know what this man has with us.”
The German has since broken his silence on the claims but it seems as though some fans agree with his statement.
A video showing Tierney officiating various Liverpool games has gone viral. It includes incidents from games against Spurs in the last two seasons, as well as his controversial decision to blow for half-time when Liverpool were on the attack against Manchester United at Anfield.
But also included is Tierney’s failure to award a penalty for Everton against Manchester City at Goodison Park last season after Rodri appeared to control the ball with his hand in the area.
A few examples of Paul Tierney’s bias against Liverpool Football Club.

City won 1-0 and went on to beat Liverpool to the title by a single point on the final day.
The video, lasting one minute and fifty two seconds, has accrued over 125,000 views on Twitter and racked up retweets, quote-tweets and likes as well.
Klopp faced monumental backlash for calling out Tierney, with Martin Cassidy, CEO of Ref Support UK, demanding the FA impose a POINTS DEDUCTION on Liverpool.
In his press conference on Tuesday, the German expressed regret over grabbing headlines for the wrong reasons.
He said: “I know Paul Tierney is not doing this on purpose. Absolutely not.
“We won a game 4-3 in a spectacular manner, and the only headlines are what I created, and I regret that. I have no clue what happens now. We expect a reaction.”
