Everton fullback Baines payed tribute to the Hillsborough victims and their families in their match against Newcastle United.

He said after the match,
“My father was in the stadium on the tragic day in 1989 and thankfully survived the disaster.”
“I dedicate this goal to the Hillsborough victims & their families.”
“It is hard to relate this game with something so huge as Hillsborough.”
“But it is important for a club like Everton to show their respect to the families.”
