Man Utd on red alert as fans plan fresh protest before re-arranged Liverpool tie

Manchester United are on red alert after it emerged fuming fans will stage another protest ahead of next week's re-arranged game with Liverpool.

United bosses are bracing themselves for a second demonstration against American owners the Glazers in the space of two weeks.

Last weekend's game against Liverpool had to be postponed after thousand of supporters clashed with police outside the stadium, resulting in violent scenes.

Several hundred stormed the ground to gain access to the dressing rooms and pitch, with some swinging on the goalposts and others causing criminal damage to property.

It forced organisers to call off the biggest game in English football an hour after the original kick-off time of 4.30pm, with both sets of players left stuck inside their respective team hotels.

Premier League bosses have rescheduled the match for next Thursday at 8.15pm.

Organisers of last weekend's protest vowed there would be no let-up, and plans are already in place for a second demonstration ahead of the visit of Jurgen Klopp's side.

United supporters took to social media last night to post an ominous message encouraging thousands of fans to repeat the demonstration.

It said: "Thursday May 13, Old Trafford, Trinity Statue, WE GO AGAN! Bring your friends, family, flares, flags, banners and scarves. Let's get another huge turnout and show the Glazers we're not stopping until they go #GlazersOut."

United bosses will beef up security measures and consult with local police in a bid to formulate a plan that is hoped will prevent a repeat of the ugly clashes that heaped shame on the club.

United are aware the world will be watching to see how the demonstration is handled – and are concerned that the late kick off time will see thousands of fans turn up at Old Trafford under the influence of alcohol.
