A Liverpool fan required treatment after being attacked by a group of Roma supporters outside Anfield before the teams Champions League clash on Tuesday night.

A group of hooded supporters isolated the Liverpool fan and he was left needing treatment on the road outside of the stadium.

BBC reporter Dan Roan captured a group of approximately 20 supporters standing yards away from one fan, who was receiving treatment on the floor.

The supporters appeared to be holding belts and charged at another fan in ugly scenes on Merseyside.

ITV correspondent Gabriel Clarke uploaded a video onto Twitter that showed a group of Roma fans charging down Anfield road.

There was a large police presence outside Anfield before the game, mainly to control the large amount of Liverpool supporters that had congregated to welcome the team coaches into the stadium.
