Hillsborough: Watch West Brom's touching tribute video to the 96 as seats turn red in memory of victims

Sport | Published:

Albion put on a moving tribute to the 96 victims who lost their life in the Hillsborough disaster and Baggies captain Darren Fletcher and Liverpool-born Rickie Lambert took a floral tribute over to the away fans.

West Brom changed 96 blue seats at The Hawthorns to the colour red for Sunday's game.

The Baggies hosted Liverpool on the final day of the season, just over two weeks after an inquest found the 96 football fans who died during an FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough 27 years ago were ‘unlawfully killed’.

After such a long battle for justice, many teams paid tribute to the families of the victims with a minute's silence in the week after the judgment.
