Liverpool CEO Peter Moore says Irish supporter Seán Cox is in his thoughts after the Reds ended a 30-year wait for a league title. 

The Merseysiders are top-flight champions for the first time since 1990 thanks to Chelsea's 2-1 win over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge last night. 

With celebrations set to unfold for the convincing Premier League success, Moore mentioned Cox in a message posted on his Twitter account. 

"Number 19 is finally here. It's for our millions of fans, near and far...we miss you. It’s for the Reds that fell to the virus. It’s for my dad, who first took me to Anfield in 1959. It’s for Seán Cox, smiling in Ireland right now. And it’s for the 96, who will never be forgotten." 

Seán and his brother Martin Cox were heading to Anfield for the Reds' Champions League semi-final tie against Roma when they were attacked by away supporters in April 2018. Two men were subsequently jailed for their roles in the assault. 

The Co Meath father-of-three was left with head injuries that required him to be placed into an induced coma at the Walton Centre in Liverpool. 

He was subsequently transferred to a Dublin hospital, then cared for at Dún Laoghaire Rehabilitation Hospital, back in the UK and finally Marymount in Lucan. 

His family announced he had moved home permanently in March
