Liverpool fans have got a fair few former players who grind their gears. More than a few ex-Reds come back to Anfield and get booed off the park, and after seeing a video of AFTV’s Robbie talking about his hate for Samir Nasri, Liverpool fan account Empire of the Kop has asked the Kopites who their most hated ex-player is.

As you can imagine, a lot of the same names have cropped up. Some Liverpool fans have gone for Raheem Sterling, others have mentioned Mario Balotelli. However, the overriding name that has cropped up on this one is El Hadji Diouf, the Senegalese scumbag who made a habit out of being booed and jeered, with one of his finest moments coming in a UEFA Cup clash with Celtic when he was caught on camera spitting at the Hoops supporters.
The Senegalese striker has also received scathing reviews from both Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher in their respective autobiographies. The Liverpool legends wrote about how the 38-year-old has no respect and each told different stories about the former Red which will be enough to make even non-Liverpool fans lament the fact that the Senegalese scumbag was given the talent for a career in football despite being an awful human being.
You can read the Liverpool fans’ verdict on who their most hated former Red is here:
El Hadji Diouf it's got to be

The answer to this is, and always will be, El Hadji Diouf.

El Hadji Diouf. So disappointed he was ever associated with our club.

Diouf the only player I wouldn’t welcome back at Anfield for a drink that I can think of

The Reds have made it clear that they detest Diouf and who can blame them when you hear the stories about the striker.
