Liverpool give matchday staff a handbook detailing a list of unacceptable words.

Liverpool have issued matchday staff a guide that informs them of unacceptable language, including homophobic, racist and sexist remarks.

The handbook has not been handed out to the players or the coaching staff, but to those who work around the stadium on a matchday.

Liverpool's social inclusion officer Rishi Jain said that the reason for the handbook is the educate the employees

"As part of the club's continued commitment to tackle all forms of discrimination, as well as promoting its approach to equality and diversity, Liverpool FC has been actively engaged in a full club-wide education and awareness programme," The Telegraph quotes him as saying.

"This programme includes interactive workshops and a handbook which is designed to provide information on the latest equality legislation including information relating to what terminology is deemed as both acceptable and unacceptable.

"This programme of awareness enables our employees to recognise inappropriate language and take the necessary steps to ensure Anfield is free from all forms of discrimination."

Liverpool came under fierce criticism in the wake of the Luis Suarez race row in 2011 when the forward was found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

The Liverpool squad wore shirts supporting Suarez following the incident, a decision that former Reds boss Kenny Dalglish later said he regretted.
