Raheem Sterling snapped 'inhaling hippy crack' from a balloon

Another day, another controversy for Liverpool star Raheem Sterling met with tedious outrage in the papers.

Just days after it emerged he had been puffing a shisha pipe, Sterling was snapped supposedly inhaling something with much more front-page headline potential: 'Hippy crack' (or 'laughing gas' as it's known on the streets).

The Sun have plastered him across the front page with the headline 'Balloony' (balloon/loony - geddit?) and pictures him apparently sucking in nitrous oxide gas from a balloon.

The paper claimed the 20-year-old England star passed out from the hit - just days before a game.

We're sure Brendan Rodgers will be feeling quite like that balloon - deflated and let down.
