          background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(#444, #111);
          background-image: -o-linear-gradient(#444, #111);
          background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(#444, #111);
          background-image: linear-gradient(#444, #111);

          padding: 10px !important;
          color: rgb(255, 255, 255);

          border-bottom: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0);
          border-top-right-radius: 5px;

          background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(#444, #111);
          background-image: linear-gradient(#444, #111);    
          text-decoration:none!important;  
        }
        #related-posts a{
          font-weight:bold!important;   
          color: white;
          font-family: arial!important;
          border-right:0px!important;
          margin: 10px 0px 10px 10px !important;    
        }
        #related-posts a:hover{

          margin: 10px 0px 10px 10px !important;
          background:none!important;

        } 
        #related-posts img:hover{
          opacity:0.5;
        }
<!--Wordpress Style Responsive Related PostsCSS code end-->

Step #4: Now we have to position the ‘related posts’ in footer section of the blogpost. To do so find the following line of code at first.
<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

Step #5: Now add the following block of code under the line specified in Step 4.
<!-- Related Posts with Thumbnails Code Start-->
                     <!-- remove -->
                     <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
                       <center>
                         <div id='related-posts'>
                           <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
                             <b:if cond='data:label.isLast != &quot;true&quot;'>
                             </b:if>
                             <script expr:src='&quot;/feeds/posts/default/-/&quot; + data:label.name + &quot;?alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=related_results_labels_thumbs&amp;max-results=5&quot;' type='text/javascript'/>
                           </b:loop>
                           <script type='text/javascript'>
                             removeRelatedDuplicates_thumbs();
                             printRelatedLabels_thumbs(&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;);
                           </script>
                         </div>
                       </center>
                       <!-- remove -->
                     </b:if>
                     <!-- Related Posts with Thumbnails Code End-->
