Last season was a highly successful one for Liverpool on and off the pitch. For supporters there were countless memorable nights and incredible experiences to enjoy. Yet British society has seen an increase in racial tension during this time.
In March of this year, a supporter was banned for life from Anfield for racially abusing an Asian family at a legends game.
