Liverpool today said they have received "no contact" from anyone about match-fixing, following newspaper claims that their 2009 match against Hungarian side Debrecen is under investigation for fixing.

Investigators Europol yesterday revealed a Champions League match in England was among hundreds suspected of being fixed, prompting Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet to identify the tie as Liverpool's 1-0 win against Debrecen in September 2009.

A Liverpool spokesman said: "We have had no contact from Europol or any other organisation over this."

The Danish report made no suggestion that anyone at Liverpool is involved in any wrongdoing.
