The following statement has been issued on behalf of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers:
I was incredibly moved by the vigil today; the courage and dignity displayed by the families and survivors is truly humbling.
This was a tragedy that affected not just a club and a city, but the entire football community.
The way the fans have tirelessly campaigned for truth and justice has helped to keep Hillsborough in the public domain and helped educate people as to what really happened that fateful day. They deserve enormous credit for what has been achieved today.
The victims, families and survivors are an integral part of Liverpool Football Club and always will be.
