Liverpool Kit Fury Special

The latest Liverpool kit has angered some groups of the Hillsborough disaster families. The new kit features a new badge which is where the trouble starts. The below image of the badge that it is replacing.

The two flames on either side of the badge are the "Justice flames" honouring the Hillsborough campaign.  These flames have been moved from the badge to the back of the new shirt and the iconic Liver Bird crest will be a stand alone figure in gold, as you can see by the image below. 

This has lead to some of the Hillsborough families to be angered by the not being consulted about the matter. Despite all this they have welcomed the new kit but would or liked to be kept in the loop about what was happening. Liverpool FC have stated they consulted a group but not all groups. 

The two flames will be on the back of the shirt just underneath the collar in gold with 96 in the middle of the two flames. Pictured below:
