Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Iago Aspas scoring against Barcelona
By Harvey Byrne
Iago Aspas scored the second goal during Celta Vigo’s 4-3 win over Barcelona on Sunday evening – and Liverpool fans took to Twitter to pay tribute to their former striker.
Aspas, 29, joined Liverpool in 2013 from Celta Vigo in a £7.2million deal.
However, he was largely considered a flop at Anfield, scoring just one goal in 15 appearances for the Merseysiders.
The Spanish attacker moved back to Celta Vigo permanently in 2015 in a £3.5million deal.
He managed a goal against La Liga giants Barcelona in a surprise win for his side and Liverpool fans took to social media to reminisce about the forward.
