Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has blasted ex-footballer Jermaine Pennant for saying he felt sorry for every Liverpool player following last night’s Champions League final – apart from goalkeeper Loris Karius.
As most of western civilisation knows by now, Karius was at fault for two goals in the Reds’ 3-1 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid in Kiev, and was left absolutely distraught after the full-time whistle.
The 24-year-old goalie has taken to Twitter today to apologise once again to supporters and team-mate, but that hasn’t been enough to impress Pennant, who also played with Liverpool under Rafa Benitez.
Pennant knows what it’s like to lose a Champions League final after playing for the Merseyside club against AC Milan in 2007, so he probably knows some of what Karius is experiencing right now – and yet he still posted this on his Twitter feed:

As you can imagine, plenty of figures within football weren’t best pleased with Pennant’s take, one of which was Foderingham, who let him have both barrels:
To post something like that as former professional says an awful lot about you as a person. https://t.co/YiTd5KhhTg

Sadly, Pennant is yet to respond to the Gers star, or anyone yet, but we’re waiting with bated breath.
