The match on Saturday night was delayed by organisers because of the chaos outside the Paris stadium.

A Longford Liverpool supporter believes UEFA has many questions to answer after issues at the Champions League final.

Thousands of Liverpool fans were delayed getting into to the clash at the Stade de France after issues with security and police checks

Derek Carrig attended the game with his brother and arrived at the grounds at around 6pm having spent the afternoon at a fan park.

He believes that the security and safety arrangements for Liverpool fans were substandard:

"The fan park was run extremely poorly. They funnelled 40,000 people through a gap the size of a bathroom door which was incredible. I saw small children up on people's shoulders just for oxygen because the heat was absolutely incredible.

Then once we got through that check you were straight back into a second security check; it was very very poor."
