A Danish newspaper reported that police have text message evidence a goalkeeper from a Hungarian club tried unsuccessfully to ensure his team conceded at least three goals against Liverpool.
Ekstra Bladet said match-fixers wanted to ensure there were at least three goals in the match between Liverpool and Debrecen at Anfield in 2009, which finished 1-0 to the English club.
In one text message reported by the Danish paper, one of the alleged fixers apparently laments Reds captain Steven Gerrard's inability to add to his side's tally.
There is no suggestion any English team was involved in the fixing, which was said to be for betting purposes.
