Liverpool fans react as Club Brugge and Simon Mignolet awarded Belgian title

Club Brugge have been awarded the Belgian First Division A title by the Jupiler League’s board of directors agreed to hand Simon Mignolet’s side the title with one game of the regular campaign left – and Liverpool fans have reacted.
