With the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster being marked at grounds all over the Premier League and Football League this past weekend, we saw a great example of the footballing community coming together to pay their respects and show that they felt the loss, no matter what club they supported.

After a 1-0 win against Catania this weekend, the fans in the San Siro in the Curva Sud stayed behind after the final whistle to similarly mark the occasion with a rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.

This isn't the first time that Milan fans have made such a gesture however, as just four short days after the tragedy, at the start of a European Cup semi-final against Real Madrid, the fans held a moment's applause and began singing the song famously associated with the Liverpool club.
