Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler reportedly mocks John Terry's Champions League penalty slip on Twitter after Chelsea fans poked fun at Steven Gerrard.

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler appears to have hit back at Chelsea supporters mocking Steven Gerrard's famous slip last season by reminding them of a similar incident involving John Terry.

During the Blues' 3-1 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor last night, a number of Chelsea fans chanted about Gerrard's slip.

The former England international failed to find his footing against Chelsea at Anfield last season, which allowed Demba Ba to find the back of the net and contribute to a defeat which hampered the Reds' title chances.

According to numerous reports, Fowler responded to the mocking chants by tweeting a picture of Terry slipping while taking a penalty in the 2008 Champions League against Manchester United. He added the message: "Chelsea fans singing about liverpools stevie g again... You'd think he's the only player thats ever slipped."

The 39-year-old later deleted the tweet.
