Gelling was part of a gang of up to seven who attacked Ventsislav Marginov, 51, after watching The Reds’ win on June 1.

John McDermott QC prosecuting, said Gelling and his friends had been in a bar in Southport, Merseyside before he and his pals crossed paths with Mr Marginov and his two boys.

Mr Marginov’s son was punched during the encounter by a member of Gelling’s group, but it was Gelling who delivered the fatal punch to the 51-year-old.

‘LOOKING FOR TROUBLE’

The Bulgarian Liverpool fan suffered a fractured skull and died three days later.

The court heard Gelling, 32, told police: “I’m not a***d if he dies or lives, he’s injured permanently, a cabbage. I do not give a f***.”


Gelling was jailed for six years and a further four on licence after admitting manslaughter.

Judge Andrew Menary QC called the attack an “outrageous incident of street violence” and labelled Gelling “cowardly”.

He said: “You are a lout who just looks for trouble.”
