Liverpool cult hero delighted with fan’s bizarre tattoo tribute

Tony Warner is a Liverpool legend, but not for the reasons you might think.

Despite several years at the club, the former ‘keeper never played a single minute for the Reds’ first team in the Premier League.

And in an era when David James was number one, it’s not something you would be shouting from the rooftops either.

He’s a bit of a cult hero weirdly for some fans, and by all accounts a very nice man.

But still not nice enough that you would get his name, and a picture of a bucket, tattooed on your leg like one man seems to have done on holidays.

Conor Higgins got in touch with us via Facebook to let us know that his mate had contacted the aforementioned Warner, who has recently joined Twitter.

Williams let the former goalkeeper know he had a special piece of his body dedicated to Warner, and the tweets started flying.

Fair play to Warner for not blocking Williams immediately either and he eventually agreed to send a signed jersey to him for his efforts.
