Liverpool have apologised for any offence caused by a message posted on their official Twitter account which appeared to mock the Munich air disaster.
The club had asked on Twitter for suggestions of a three-song playlist to go out over the speaker system at Anfield just prior to kick-off in Sunday's Barclays Premier League match there between the Merseysiders and bitter rivals Manchester United.
One response read: "Come fly with me - Frank Sinatra. Always look on the bright side of life - Eric Idle. I like to move it - Reel to Real" - three songs associated with making fun of the 1958 tragedy in Munich which claimed the lives of 23 people, including eight United players.
Liverpool replied with: "Have you been sneaking a look at the dressing room iPod?"
An apology was subsequently issued, with a club spokesperson saying: "Liverpool Football Club responded quickly to correct the error of judgement that was made last night on its official Twitter account in responding to a distasteful and inappropriate Tweet.
"The club took decisive action and the comment was deleted swiftly.
"We apologise, unreservedly, for any offence that was caused by this mistake."
