JURGEN KLOPP could have been arrested for his Merseyside derby celebrations.

That is according to former England defender Danny Mills.

Liverpool boss Klopp charges onto the pitch and embraced Alisson after Divock Origi’s injury time goal.

But Mills has slammed his behaviour and says a fan would have been arrested for doing he same.

"It's absolutely shocking what he does," he said on BBC Radio 5 Live .

"Go down the touchline, leave your technical area, celebrate with your staff. I don't have a problem with that at all.

"But to run into the middle of the pitch - if that's a fan, of course (he would get arrested). I think it's disrespectful to Everton, and he knows it.

"Yes it's a derby, it's a big game, but you cannot run into the middle of the pitch. Last minute or not."

Mills also claimed Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho would have been slaughtered for acting the same way.

“I would like to think that Jurgen Klopp will get into trouble for that,” Mills said.

“If that's other managers that do that - and we know one in particular - he'd get absolutely slaughtered.

“That's not right. Everton fans can't be happy with that. But Marco Silva, fabulous dignity I think.”

And Klopp apologised for his actions, insisting he meant no disrespect.

"I have to apologise because I didn't want to be disrespectful but I couldn't stop myself,” he said. “It just happened!

"The game was with unbelievable intensity. Both teams had chances.

“Both goalkeepers had outstanding performances. In the end it was a very weird goal.

“I can't imagine the disappointment of Everton.

“But we got it and we will take it. It is a brilliant night.

"If I could describe it [how he feels] then I would have control over it.

“We don't want to look for excuses but that's how it is.

“I’m not sure what the FA has to do in a situation like this but I will have to wait.

"The plan was not to run [onto the pitch to celebrate]! When I chose to stop I was close to Alisson.

“He was surprised! It was the last situation of the game. Both teams delivered an unbelievable fight.

“Both teams tried really to play football. No harsh things. The game was really good.

"We tried to control the game they had good counter-attacks. We tried to go in behind but we didn't play exactly like that, that often.

“We had our moments and had brilliant chances. Our counter-press was really good and we stayed in the game until the end."
