A flare is released in the away end during the match between Man City and Liverp

This season has seen frequent episodes of canisters being opened at away games, sending plumes of red smoke into the stadiums.

The trend has not been limited to Liverpool fans but the Merseyside club have called for their supporters to cease or risk the prospect of exclusion.

"As the Reds prepare to take on Newcastle on Saturday the club is reminding its travelling fans that smoke bombs, flares and other pyrotechnic devices are not allowed in any Premier League football grounds," said a statement on the club's official website.

"A number of incidents have been reported recently that a minority of Liverpool fans have been behaving inappropriately during our away fixtures and using these illegal devices.

"If a person is identified behaving inappropriately at away grounds then the club will have no option but to ban the individuals concerned from future matches.

"LFC encourages all away fans to respect the values of the club and stop taking these flares and fireworks to matches."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
