Maguire played the full 90 minutes as Ralf Rangnick’s side was beaten 4-0 by rivals Liverpool on Tuesday, after which some fans began a petition to strip him of the captaincy.

Sky Sports reports that the defender reported the bomb threat to the Cheshire Police, with a sweep conducted at his home on Thursday afternoon.
