"I think it's a load of nonsense", he told United Kingdom radio station TalkSport.

"I don't know where it started and why it started, I would feel uncomfortable doing it".

Murphy also believes it's wrong for someone like Kevin De Bruyne to applaud a player who "can't lace his boots". I'd do it because you have to do it, but I wouldn't want to do it, because it's not done with sincerity. "They won trophy after trophy; I played with Liverpool players who have won six titles!" the former Aston Villa player added.

"The fans don't want you to do it, the players don't really want to do it, it's all for effect and it doesn't mean anything".

"Kevin De Bruyne - probably the best midfielder in the world - is clapping midfielders who can't lace his boots".

"If things were different I would love nothing more than to celebrate together, to have a parade that would be even bigger than the one after we won the Champions League past year. but it just is not possible".

"I don't see the point". I'd feel uncomfortable. I understand why the powers that be created it, because it does give off the right message to those watching.

Former Barcelona and Spain star Julio Salinas thinks that Liverpool winning the Premier League title will be celebrated around the world due to the esteem so many hold the Reds in.

Salinas issued a warning to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, with the former Spanish worldwide claiming the Reds are on their way to breaking Manchester City's record points total of 100 points.

Liverpool are in a strong position to break three of those records, with a points haul of 107 still possible, a current lead of 23 points over City, and the chance to end up with 35 wins - although their haul of 70 goals so far means reaching City's tally is unlikely in their final seven games.
