Liverpool fans found out what it was like for their own side to face Luis Suarez and experienced how annoying the Barca forward is up front.
The Uruguayan opened the scoring against his former side and celebrated as any forward would’ve had they scored an important goal in a Champions League semi-final.
For Liverpool supporters, it was a case of getting a taste of their own medicine after Suarez tormented opposition teams in Red between 2011 and 2014.
While most supporters won’t have an issue with Suarez celebrating, it was his unnecessary attempts to get Alisson, Andy Robertson and Joel Matip sent off that struck a chord with Liverpool fans.
The Barcelona forward is a world-class player but makes fans of opposition clubs angry with his antics.
Liverpool fans weren’t pleased with how Suarez acted on Wednesday and vented their spleen on Twitter.
I was wrong. I thought Luis Suarez saw Liverpool differently. Had meaning for him but he was just a mercenary who did what he was paid for us. He cares about himself, his career and Barcelona which is fine. I was just wrong.

It’ll be a crazy week when Liverpool fans turn on Luis Suarez and Brendan Rogers becomes a club legend. Believe

Luis Suarez being Luis Suarez wouldn’t be a problem under normal circumstance. You can celebrate all you want when you score, but show the club that made you a little respect, no matter who’s wearing the shirt, even if it’s just for the fans, who backed 110%.

Listen, I want Milner to break Coutinho and Suarez.

Imagine still liking Suarez with the manner he left the club and dirty tactics against us only because of that one world class season which mounted to nothing.

One final thought. Something that’s been bugging me all week, with people saying ‘it’s clear Suarez still loves #LFC’ – total bullshit. You saw what he is tonight and there’s nothing wrong with that. Driven, passionate. But about himself and his career and current club, not LFC

Liverpool will not lose sleep over Suarez celebrating but will be tugging their hair out at the prospect of crashing out of the Champions League at this stage.
With Lionel Messi in the form he has been this season, it was clear that he was never going to let Liverpool stand in the way of his dream of winning the Champions League again.
The Reds, however, need to put up a spectacular fight at Anfield next week if they are to have any hope of progressing to the final in Madrid.
