Liverpool star Sadio Mane has broken a record set by Rangers manager Steven Gerrard after scoring twice in the Champions League win over Bayern Munich to become the Anfield side’s highest away goal-scorer in the competition.

Mane’s second goal against the Germans was his seventh away from home in the Champions League and took him past the previous high of six, shared by Gerrard and Robert Firminho.
