Jurgen Klopp takes aim at ex-Liverpool star Dietmar Hamann with sarcastic reply

Jurgen Klopp has hit back after former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann suggested this Reds side need a "spark" to end their run of poor form.

Hamann also hinted that this could be the beginning of the end of Klopp's Reds, seven years after he arrived at Anfield.

But when it was put to the Kop boss about the "spark" comment, the German snapped back at his compatriot. He said: "Who said that?"

Klopp was then reminded it was Hamann, who played for the Reds between 1999 and 2006.

"Oh great. A fantastic source, well respected everywhere."

It was then put to Klopp that he is an ex-Liverpool player.

Klopp then added: "That does not give you the right to say what you want especially when you have no idea.

Where will Liverpool finish in the Premier League this season? Give us your prediction in the comments section below.

"I actually think Didi Hamann does not deserve that you use his phrase to ask a question. Do me a favour and ask your own question. Try to ask without using the word spark."

Klopp also insisted that Jordan Henderson is in the right frame of mind to feature against Rangers tonight if needed.

The Liverpool captain and Arsenal defender Gabriel have presented their side of the story to the FA after a bust-up at the Emirates on Sunday.

The FA have confirmed they are looking into the incident in the dying stages of the Gunners’ 3-2 win over the Reds.

Arsenal defender Gabriel and Henderson had an angry confrontation after words were exchanged.

When asked if Henderson would be in the right frame of mind to play in tonight’s Champions League clash, Liverpool boss Klopp said: "Yes."
