A cheeky mascot was spotted making reference to Liverpool’s six Champions League trophies ahead of their 4-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg last night.
Ahead of Liverpool ’s clash the Austrian Champions, eagle-eyed Reds supporters noticed the youngster holding up six fingers in an apparent show of support for the six-time winners.
As the camera panned across the Salzburg players, the mascot made the gesture, much to the delight of Liverpool fans watching at home.
“Love this FC Salzburg mascot tonight,” one fan tweeted.
“The fact that he’s a mascot for RB Salzburg is what made me laugh,” another added.

“What a legend,” replied one more.
Liverpool ultimately went on to win the clash 4-3 despite a Salzburg fightback.
The defending Champions went 3-0 up in the first-half thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Mo Salah and looked on course for a comfortable win.
However, Hwang Hee-chan’s goal shortly before half time sparked a comeback.

Japanese forward Takumi Minamino shortened Liverpool’s lead to just one before teenager Erling Braut Haaland drew Salzburg level.
Salzburg’s delight was short-lived though, with Salah netting Liverpool’s fourth less than ten minutes after Haaland scored the equaliser.
It was a much needed win for the defending champions who lost their Champions League opener 2-0 to Napoli.

Manager Jurgen Klopp admitted after the game that the game taught his side “a very important lesson”.
“Other teams maybe break down at 3-0 here but they were not really bothered.
“We opened the door, they were running through the door.
"It was a very important lesson for us tonight but I prefer massively to learn it in the game than after the game because, if we lost 4-3, it would have been the same lesson.
"Now we won 4-3 so three points and a lot to learn from so, I'm fine. I knew before that we have to improve a lot but now everybody knows it probably."
