Danny Murphy has apologised for claiming that some of Liverpool's players were not fit to lace the boots of Kevin De Bruyne as he slammed the idea of Manchester City giving Jurgen Klopp's men a guard of honour.

The former Reds midfielder described the tradition of giving the newly-crowned champions a guard of honour as 'nonsense', after Pep Guardiola confirmed that his players would do so before facing Liverpool at the Etihad on Thursday.

With Murphy heavily against the idea, he went on to suggest that some of Jurgen Klopp's men aren't fit to lace De Bruyne's boots before receiving heavy backlash for his comments.

Now the 43-year-old has apologised for his 'poor choice of wording' while insisting that he has nothing but respect for the new Premier League champions.

Former Liverpool team-mate Jamie Carragher backed Murphy for making the apology, saying: 'Well said Murph'.

Guardiola made it clear that he believed Liverpool 'deserved' the honour after winning the league with seven games to spare when his City side lost against Chelsea last week.

Murphy played for Liverpool between 1997 and 2004, making 249 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.
