Man Utd clash with Liverpool DELAYED after fuming fans storm locked-down Old Trafford in security breach

MANCHESTER UNITED'S game with Liverpool has been DELAYED after fuming fans stormed locked-down Old Trafford in a security breach.

A planned protest against the Red Devils' owners, the Glazers, led to a stand-off with police at the entrance to the hotel just hours before the game.

Supporters chanted and lit flares next to the team bus as it waited for the squad.

And a demonstration featuring a large number of fans outside Old Trafford led to hundreds rushing onto the pitch.

Footage emerged online of fans chanting towards the Sky Sports television studio and cameras set up in the main stand.

One clip even showed a flare being hurled in the direction of the gantry, while protestors were also seen carrying the United corner flags.

Authorities managed to usher the crowds off the pitch but amid the chaos the match has been pushed back, but no revised kick-off time has been confirmed.

Sky Sports' pitch side reporter Geoff Shreeves revealed players were yet to come out of their hotel rooms due to safety concerns.
