Liverpool fans celebrate outside despite warnings

While the presentation ceremony was muted inside an empty Kop, the jubilant crowd outside let off flares and cheered as fireworks were set off from the stadium.

The crowd of soccer revellers gathered even though Merseyside police issued a 48-hour dispersal order to stop fans from forming in large numbers across the city.

Fans also celebrated in a big gathering when the title was won on June 25 when nearest rivals Manchester City were beaten by Chelsea.
