Ryanair delivered a sarcastic response to a Liverpool fan who asked the budget airline about a flight to Istanbul.

This year's Champions League final takes place in the Turkish capital on May 29, with Jurgen Klopp's side eyeing a famous return to the Ataturk Stadium.

The Reds claimed a fifth European Cup in 2005 at this venue, completing one of the greatest footballing comebacks witnessed versus AC Milan.

Liverpool must get the better of Real Madrid in the quarter-finals followed by Chelsea or Porto in the semi-finals to reach the final of the competition, though one supporter is already planning ahead for Turkey.

Sean Dowd (@seandow13459151) tweeted Ryanair, saying: 'What’s the cheapest way to get to Istanbul, @Ryanair? Asking for a friend #CL.'

Ryanair responded in humorous fashion, delivering the following response on their official Twitter page: 'Hi Sean, unfortunately we currently do not fly to Istanbul. Seeing as you are a Liverpool fan, we doubt you'll be flying there any time soon either.'

Should the Reds reach the final in Istanbul, it would mark the monumental achievement of progressing to the furthest stage of the Champions League for the third time in four years.

Liverpool's quarter-final tie with Los Blancos is also a repeat of the 2018 final in Kiev, which ended in heartbreak for Klopp's men.
