Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler: We shouldn\'t celebrate finishing in top 4

Published on: 21 May 2017

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has urged his old club to set their sights higher than a top four finish.

Fowler wrote for the Sunday Mirror: "I'm the biggest Liverpool fan on the planet but I'm old school. I don't celebrate finishing fourth.

"It won't be a triumph if they win on Sunday. It won't be a miraculous achievement. They shouldn't be celebrating like they've won something...unless they actually win something.

"Don't get me wrong, it will be an achievement to have qualified for the Champions' League, and of course I'll be rooting for them to finish the job against Boro, but c'mon. With these clubs, the Liverpools, Arsenals, Man Uniteds, their history is about trophies.

"I'll be delighted if they win mind, and gutted if they don't, because Liverpool have been outside the Champions' League for far too long. And not being there hurts a club massively. It can even cripple them (as I discovered painfully at Leeds)."
