Liverpool legend Phil Neal has turned on manager Roy Hodgson over his criticism of Anfield supporters.
In the aftermath of Wednesday's calamitous loss at home to Wolves, Hodgson claimed "the famous Anfield support hasn't really been there" since he became manager and added: "I have to hope the fans will become supporters because we need support."
But Neal told Talksport: "Hodgson could rue saying those words about the fans.
"Against Wolves there was 90 minutes without a shot on goal, no pressure, and no excitement for the fans. And that's down to the players and down to Hodgson.
"We couldn’t believe what we we were seeing. We didn’t put any pressure on Wolves. There was no cohesion and no-one looked as they were enjoying playing.
"We didn’t look a team and that’s the frightening thing.
"Shankly and Paisley would have been turning in their graves to see that pathetic team effort."
