Red Star Belgrade v Liverpool

Shaqiri also played with the flag of Kosovo, the breakaway region that is not recognized as independent by dozens of countries, including Serbia and Russian Federation, on his right boot.

Shaqiri, who emigrated to Switzerland with his family as a child in 1992, scored for his adoptive nation in a game against Serbia in this summer's World Cup and raised the double-headed eagle gesture, a representation of the Albanian flag.

Liverpool have left Swiss global Xherdan Shaqiri out of the squad for Tuesday's Champions League tie at Red Star Belgrade, saying they were uncertain over what sort of reception he would receive in the Serbian capital. I just go there to play a football game.

Xherdan Shaqiri has been omitted from Liverpool's UEFA Champions League squad to face Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade as the club aim to "avoid any distractions" arising from the player's Kosovar-Albanian heritage.

It's Kelleher's first call up to the Liverpool senior squad since their 5-0 win over Napoli in the pre-season but will travel with Jurgen Klopp's side alongside first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

That symbol was in reference to ethnic Albanians and Shaqiri was fined by Federation Internationale de Football Association, along with Arsenal's Granit Xhaka and Stephan Lichsteiner, for making the gesture. He denied the celebration had political overtones.

"We came here as a football team, representing one of the biggest clubs in the world". We want the focus to be on a great game of football, free from anything else.

Jurgen Klopp's side now sit top of Group C and go into the Belgrade clash as heavy favourites having comfortably dispatched Red Star at Anfield recently.

Liverpool supporters will hope that the Reds can duplicate the form from their matchup against the Serbian club two weeks ago in the Champions League as Mohamed Salah led the Reds with a brace in a convincing 4-0 win at Anfield.

"Maybe if Shaq would have played they (the crowd) go for him or whatever, I don't know, but I didn't think that far", Klopp added.
