The Italian appeared to take the ball away from Reds captain Henderson and became involved in an exchange with Daniel Sturridge, following the award of a penalty when Jordon Ibe was felled in the penalty area in the Europa League last-32, first leg clash.

Balotelli scored from the spot to hand Liverpool a slender lead against the Turk side, who host Liverpool next Thursday in the second leg.

Reds captain Steven Gerrard accused the 24-year-old of showing Henderson ‘disrespect’ by taking away penalty duties away from him after the match while appearing on ITV as a studio guest.

However, Balotelli took to Instagram to respond and is already looking forward to Sunday’s match with Southampton.
