The result of the Merseyside derby is still counting for Liverpool and Everton as well as their fans who were unhappy with the stalemate.

However, the latest report has revealed that an Everton fan, named Stuart Watt has been found guilty of hating Liverpool fans after a “murderer” claim was attributed to him in the first leg of the derby game in December.

It would be recalled that the first leg of the Merseyside derby at the Anfield ended in favor of the Reds with a last minute goal from Divock Origi after coming in from the bench.

It is learned that before the game, Stuart Watt had shouted and called Liverpool fans murderers after drinking before entering into the stadium to see the game.

He has since been arrested by the police and taken to the Sefton Magistrates Court where it was established that he was loud and aggressive at supporters when he made the murderer call.

The Court has therefore established that the 27-year-old was full of venom and hatred for Liverpool fans which is unacceptable according to some sections of the law.

Stuart Watt has therefore been banned from the Goodison Park until after three years with a fine of £300. He is also not to be seen for a mile away from the club.
