Liverpool trophy parade
Unfortunately for Liverpool, there has to be a runner up, but they can still go on a trophy parade.

Kick him when he’s down
The commentator was rubbing salt into fresh wounds as Jamie Carragher’s old side missed out on the title.
Yaya Toure gets dragged into celebrations! 🎉
Savage from the commentator to Jamie Carragher…
"That could have been you here if Liverpool had won the title" 😳😂 pic.twitter.com/6jQ5PIOpf3

Salt in the wound
And he wasn’t the only one reminding Carragher where Liverpool had finished.

Hughton the liar
Chris Hughton must have thought he’d heard something else when he was sacked by Brighton this morning.
Chairman: "Chris, you're fired!"
Hughton: "I'm sorry. Did you just call me a liar?"
"No. I said you were fired."

Money well spent
Hughton may have kept his job if Brighton’s record signing had been a little less underwhelming.
Brighton attacking midfielder Alireza Jahanbakhsh finished the season with 0 goals and 0 assists in 25 apps across all competitions.
He is the club's most expensive player ever at £17m. Bargain. 😳 pic.twitter.com/Q2l6PfA30I

Undoubtedly the most comical result of the final day was Man Utd’s loss to relegated Cardiff – five years after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left the Bluebirds.
It took 5 years but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally got Cardiff playing well

Richard Keogh looked pretty happy to celebrate with the Leeds fans… after his own Derby side lost to them in the play-offs. And it could get worse for Keogh, with the footy accumulators giving them little chance of finding a way back into the game in the second leg.

On this day…
But if Liverpool fans need something to lift their spirits, they can look back on this iconic Steven Gerrard goal from the FA Cup final, 13 years ago today. What a strike.
