Saturday’s sit in protest organised by Spirit of Shankly saw 9,000 Liverpool supporters stay in their seats at the end of the game.
The fans, who first saw Liverpool held to 2-2 draw against Sunderland stayed in the ground at the end of the game in protest at the club’s American owners Hicks & Gillett.
Lasting around 30 minutes, songs were repeatedly aired against Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
Banners were flown at the front of the Kop imploring the businessmen to sell their ownership of the club.
The protest was widely advertised before the game and took place as the Liverpool players warmed down on the pitch after the match.
More action is planned for Liverpool’s next Premier League match against Blackpool at the weekend.
