As Liverpool mark the tenth anniversary of their 8-0 UEFA Champions League win over Turkish club Besiktas at Anfield, fans of the Black Eagles have taken to social media to remind the Reds' fans of that night - from a fan perspective.

After the club posted on Instagram on Tuesday morning, fans of the Turkish champions replied in their droves, as thousands left the same comment of 'Goodbye Liverpool'.

Whilst the words could have been taken as a threat from a club who have had a troubled history of past violence, the comments are not designed as malicious however. 

The words are a reminder of a Turkish commentator, who in preparation for the game had learned a handful of English words for the game, a touch the away fans still remember with fondness.  

Here is the post that Liverpool made:

Champions League history, 10 years ago today 🔴

Whilst the Reds' nostalgia has seen almost 300,000 likes, there has also been close to 45,000 comments over the post, with fans posing comments similar to 'Goodbye Liverpool' or 'Bye Bye' with reference to the words of the Turkish commentator.

On the night, a hat-trick from Yossi Benayoun, braces from Peter Crouch and Ryan Babel as well an effort from skipper Steven Gerrard, capped a famous win for the hosts which still stands as the equal-biggest winning margin in the Champions League, tied with Real Madrid's 8-0 win over Swedish side Malmo two years ago.

Whilst a memorable on Merseyside for Liverpool, it was one to forget for the Turks, however their fans appear to be taking images of that night with a spot of good nostalgic humour.
