Liverpool have reportedly invited both the BBC News and Sky Sports to meet with club representatives to discuss the narrative around the Hillsborough disaster.

Sky commentator Martin Tyler came under fire on Friday morning after he appeared to link the disaster with hooliganism.

"These are two separate issues. There is no connection at all between the Hillsborough disaster and hooliganism. I know that and I was not implying that there was. I apologise sincerely and wholeheartedly for any misunderstanding."

"We regret that we did not robustly challenge Martin Tyler on a comment which appeared to link Hillsborough and hooliganism," the corporation said.

According to Goal, Liverpool representatives now want to meet the BBC and Sky to discuss the ongoing need for constant vigilance to ensure accurate commentary and narrative around the issue.

The Hillsborough disaster occurred at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest as 97 Liverpool fans lost their lives.

"Tyler's comments come after Liverpool released a statement earlier this year to condemn chants from opposition supporters."Liverpool FC is saddened by the recent rise in vile chants about the Hillsborough disaster," the club wrote in April.
