5 Unlikely Celebrity Supporters of Liverpool

Anyone who supports a football team without growing up in the territory of the club is often bombarded with questions about the reasons for their choice.

As someone who grew up in Milton Keynes but supported Liverpool, I was often accused of being a glory supporter. This was until I pointed out two facts. First, that one side of my family originate from and live in Liverpool. The second is that since following the Reds from age eight, I could hardly be a glory supporter for a team that never won anything.

You may have been quizzed in the same way. Here I will take a look at the celebrity fans all around the world who may not have come from the Mersey but still hold Liverpool Football Club close to their hearts. 

Honorable mentions go to Manchester United players of past and present, such as Rio Ferdinand, John O'Shea and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who reportedly grew up supporting the Anfield side. 

Former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson also grew up watching the Reds, a fact that was deliberately forgotten upon his hiring as England's manager. 

Also actor/singer Donnie Wahlberg deserves a mention for being brave enough to wear a Liverpool top whilst touring in the UK, even failing to back down when performing at the M.E.N. Manchester arena.
