JORDAN HENDERSON was caught on camera screaming at Thiago during Liverpool’s horror defeat at Leicester on Saturday.
The Reds skipper, 30, was spotted tearing into the Spaniard after he gave away the free-kick leading to the Foxes’ equaliser.

As Thiago lambasted the decision, moaning to his team-mates, Henderson could be seen walking directly past him and giving him an earful.
Pundits and fans alike have blamed Thiago’s style of play for the Reds shock dip in form.
Even Liverpool icon Dietmar Hamann has claimed the former Bayern Munich superstar isn’t the right fit at Anfield.
Thiago, 29, has missed 20 GAMES due to injury and illness since his summer move.
The playmaker has featured just 13 times in all competitions, starting just nine matches.
And the stats don’t bode well for the World Cup winner, who has won just FOUR of those games – with just two victories as a starter.
Most-recently, Thiago played 73 minutes off the bench in the Leicester capitulation, while also featuring in defeats at the hands of Brighton and Manchester City.
Despite the spectacular on-field row and huge criticism of his team-mate, Henderson has called Thiago ‘brilliant’.

Ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League last-16 clash with RB Leipzig, though, Henderson said: “He’s been brilliant since he came to the club.
“He’s a world class player. He’s a really good person off the field too. A fantastic addition to the squad.
“He probably knows Leipzig better than anyone. He’s settled in really well.”
Liverpool take on Leipzig in the first-leg of their last-16 tie in Budapest due to coronavirus restrictions.
The game counts as the Germans’ home leg, with kick-off Tuesday night at 8pm.
