Jamie Carragher slams tragedy chanting during Liverpool’s draw at Luton Town
'I think we're better than that.'
The Reds legend was on commentary duty for Sky Sports and spoke out against the chanting after hearing the Hillsborough-related taunts during the match.
‘At the start of the season I was involved in something with supporters coming together about tragedy chanting,’ Carragher said on Sky Sports.
‘I’ve just heard that a couple of times in this game. As supporters we’ve got to have rivalry, there’s no doubt about that but we’re better than that.
‘I’ve heard it two or three times in the game, a few minutes ago as well. All clubs have been guilty of it at different times, but the world we live in now, I think we’re better than that.’
Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore added on social media: ‘Any disaster chanting should be punished by revoking away access for a number of games or sections of home stadia closed. Would end it overnight.
‘If you’re still chanting about Hillsborough or Munich or anything else similar, you’re a f***ing imbecile.’
On the field it was a memorable contest as Luton came close to a famous victory when Tahith Chong put them 1-0 ahead 80 minutes into the match.
However, substitute Luis Diaz headed in an equaliser deep into stoppage time to rescue a point for the Reds.
