Stan Collymore has annihilated Liverpool goalkeepers Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet after the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, suggesting that both need to be replaced at Anfield.

Karius was guilty of two huge errors on Saturday night during the 3-1 loss, which ultimately cost his side European glory in Kiev.

Meanwhile, number two option in goal Mignolet watched on from the bench and his days at Anfield appear to be numbered after remaining on the fringes in recent months.

Collymore has ripped into Liverpool’s goalkeeping pair and insists they are not good enough to remain with the Merseyside club.

“Feel for Karius on a night like tonight. But he’s never been good enough. Nor is Mignolet,” Collymore wrote on his personal Twitter account.

“Need two new keepers of the very highest quality. The most ruthless unraveling.”

Football Insider verdict:

Karius endured probably his worst night in football to date with two high-profile mistakes in the defeat to Madrid and they are likely to stay with him forever. He appeared to be in pole position to be the number one moving forward for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but his future has to come under huge doubt now. Meanwhile, Mignolet has slipped out of favour at Anfield and it seems unlikely he can force his way back into contention. Liverpool certainly need a new number one going into next year and keeping Karius as the second-choice option could still work, but only if he recovers from the emotional scars that the Champions League failure will leave him. Liverpool’s problems in goal have been well documented in recent times and it was exposed at the worst possible time against one of the very best. They have the potential to become a real force under Klopp, but have to fix such a crucial area of the pitch.
