Liverpool have condemned the “unacceptable and shameful behaviour” of “a few individuals” after Real Madrid’s team bus had a window smashed as it arrived at Anfield on Wednesday.

Hundreds of Reds fans packed on to Anfield Road before the Champions League quarter-final second leg.

The Real bus was booed as it passed, with several objects thrown.

One pane of a double-glazed window was smashed, with Liverpool staff seen cleaning up broken glass on the ground.

A Liverpool spokesperson said: “We condemn unequivocally the actions that led to Real Madrid’s team bus being damaged during its arrival to Anfield this evening.

“It is totally unacceptable and shameful behaviour of a few individuals.

“We sincerely apologise to our visitors for any distress caused.

“We will work together with Merseyside Police to establish the facts and identify those responsible.”

La Liga giants Real lead 3-1 on aggregate, with the winners of the tie to face Chelsea in the last four.
