An irked Ferdinand told his YouTube show Vibe with Five on Monday evening that Liverpool had a ‘small club mentality’ after slating Man United supporters following their stellar victory before losing 1-0 to Bournemouth in their next game.

Ferdinand ranted: ‘That is a small club mentality. That screams small club. Screaming and celebrating we beat Man United, they battered us hands up. 

‘[Graeme] Souness and Carragher was celebrating, the way they were trying to antagonise the guys and then their team goes and does that at the weekend.

‘They should be ashamed of themselves. Liverpool aint finishing in the Champions League. I don’t think he has Whatsapp [Souness], he’s got a Motorola flip and he’s still on one-to-one, 0956 number. 

‘They are going to get slapped [by Real Madrid on Wednesday], they are going to get hurt,’ he added.
