In a podcast, Davies said: “Liverpool and the 15th – that gets on my tits that shit. What are you talking about “We won’t play on the day”? Why can’t they?’

The podcast presenter Ian Stone attempted to reason with Davies by saying: “Because it’s too sad a memory.”

However, the TV star responded: “Do they play on the date of the Heysel Stadium disaster? How many dates do they not play on?

“Do Man United play on the date of Munich? Do Rangers play on the date when all their fans died in that disaster whatever year that was – 1971?”

Davies has since and tried to donate £1000 to the Hillsborough Justice Campaign as a peace offering.

However, the HJC has refused to accept his money, saying his understanding of why the club refuse to play on April 15 is more important than the money.

“The HJC has not accepted the £1,000 paid into its paypal account by Alan Davies,” read a statement from the charity.

“Whilst we accept his apology, we would prefer that he genuinely tried to understand why the decision never to play on the anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster is so important.”

Liverpool will play their FA Cup semi-final against Everton on April 14.
