Liverpool have confirmed that keeper Simon Mignolet has signed a contract with the club, but some of the club's supporters are not too happy with the news.

Mignolet's uncertainty between the sticks for Liverpool was a theme throughout 2015, with his previous manager Brendan Rodgers dropping him after a slump in form a little over a year ago.

This was the view of Mignolet on the day he sealed his new deal and a pay rise to go with it.

The reaction of Liverpool fans to the news was less joyous, with many of these negative tweets appearing on the club's official Twitter account:
