The 17-year-old had to be calmed down by team-mates and staff at the end of the game which the Reds won 2-0.
Brewster informed referee Mohammed Al-Hakim about the incident during the closing stages of the clash.
The details were then passed on to the fourth official at Prenton Park, and Liverpool have complained to Uefa.
Brewster was a key part of the England squad that won the Under-17 World Cup in India in October, scoring a hat-trick in the semi-final against Brazil.
The Reds wonder-kid has a Turkish mother and would be able to play for the Crescent-Stars at senior level.
Several players in the Turkish national team were actually born outside Turkey including AC Milan playmaker star Hakan Calhanoglu, Celta Vigo winger Emre Mor and Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun.
