The video appears to show Salah with a phone in his hand, and as his auto crept forward, he is filmed using both hands on the phone while he sat in traffic.

"The club, after discussion with the player, have made Merseyside Police aware of the footage and the circumstances surrounding its capture", a Liverpool FC spokesman said.

Liverpool also confirmed that the matter would be dealt with internally and that neither club nor player would be commenting on the matter.

The vision that's been circulating on social media is thought to have been taken after the forward led his team to a 4-0 victory over West Ham United in their league opener.

Footage shows the Egyptian surrounded by a number of fans as he sits in his Mercedes-Benz.

Merseyside Police told Daily Star Online they are investigating the footage.

A tweet from the official Merseyside Police account said that they were aware of the footage and that it had been passed onto the "relevant department" for investigation.

When thinking back to Sunday's terrific win over West Ham, it's easy to get lost in all the positives as Liverpool have started the Premier League season on a fantastic note with more expectation than ever.

However, the whole matter has sparked a heated debate between fans of Liverpool and other football clubs.

It is illegal to touch a phone while a vehicle engine is running, and Merseyside police have been made aware of the video, reports The Mirror.

'Thanks for letting us know'.
