Liverpool fans have hailed former duo Dirk Kuyt and Brad Jones on Twitter after they played a part in helping Feyenoord beat fierce rivals Manchester United on Thursday evening.

The Old Trafford side suffered a 1-0 defeat in Holland in the Europa League in their group A clash.

Both Kuyt and Jones started the match and played the full 90 minutes against the Manchester club, helping their current side to a famous victory with Tonny Vilhena scoring the deciding goal with 79 minutes on the clock.

Liverpool fans took to social media after the match, to brag over their rivals defeat, rubbing it in further that two former players featured for Feyenoord.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Kuyt became a fan favourite during his six-year stay at Anfield between 2006 and 2012.

The attacker featured in 285 encounters for the Reds scoring 71 goals before eventually leaving for Turkish side Fenerbache.

However, Jones was much maligned during his five-year stay at Liverpool between 2010 and 2015 and many considered him not good enough for the club.

The Australia international only featured in 27 encounters for the club, eventually leaving Liverpool and the Premier League and dropping all the way down to League One with Bradford.

However, his career has since reignited following moves to NEC Breda and Feyenoord.

In other Liverpool news, Simon Mignolet revealed on Twitter that the Reds must keep their “momentum” going when they face Chelsea.
