Wayne Rooney: Liverpool deserve this title

Yeah, it's really not the most important thing in the world right now, but once all of this tragedy and scariness is over, we'll need something to give us a proper boost.

Completing a wonderful season and clinching the title would be a magnificent way to end an awful period, with Reds all over the world waiting for number 19.

So the discussions of how things will proceed if the season can't be completed will go on and on for the next couple of months, at the least.

But support for Liverpool has come from some strange quarters lately, not least of all from former Man Utd and Everton player Wayne Rooney.

In his Times column, he said: "Liverpool will win the Premier League.

"Now, as you can imagine, I have Everton fans phoning me up saying: ‘The season has to be cancelled!’

"But no. Liverpool have been fantastic. They have put so much work in. They deserve this title. Can you imagine waiting 30 years and then having it taken away like this? The right decision has been made.

"It’s also right in terms of promotion and relegation and Champions League places. These issues are so big for the clubs involved that I imagine there would be a lot of legal fights if the season was just abandoned. The fair thing is to finish 2019-20 — even if we have to lose next season in the process."
