A glove supreme.

You know you’ve arrived as a footballer when the fans make up their own terrace chant for you.

And that’s just what Liverpool supporter Kev Wright has done for LFC goalkeeper and proud Cork man Caoimhin Kelleher.

The 22-year-old Irishman has impressed in recent weeks with his composed performances between the sticks in the Premier League and Champions League.

Now Wright has uploaded to his YouTube channel a re-worked version of the traditional ballad The Wild Rover, often associated with The Dubliners.

Nick says: You’ll never sing alone.

Cork?

Kerry?

Galway?

Only YOU can decide.

Trent?

You’ll Never Walk Alone.

A special version of the standard, adopted by Liverpool FC fans and beloved of Bertie Blenkinsop, in aid of Seán Cox, the 54 year-old father of three who was left with life-changing injuries after an attack before a Champions League semi-final in Anfield in April 2018.

Via Central Entertainment:

A group of musicians from Seán’s hometown of Dunboyne, County Meath, have come together to produce a rendition of Liverpool fan’s favourite ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ for release by Dolphin Records.

All proceeds from the charity single will be donated to the Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust which was established to raise much-needed funds for Seán’s future care.

Caoimhin Kelleher could make his Premier League debut for Liverpool against Southampton tomorrow….

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp revealed Spaniard Adrian was hurt when a pitch invader landed on his ankle during the post-match celebrations in Istanbul.

With first-choice Allison already sidelined, should Adrian also be ruled out [Cork-born] Kelleher may get the nod to start his first competitive match for the Reds….

He’s back!

Further to Liverpool’s astonishing four goal Champions League victory over Barcelona last night.

Johnny Keenan writes;

Cork’s biggest Liverpool fan Kevin Murphy aka Richy Sheehy came to world wide recognition last year with his viral hit ‘Salah’.

A one off never to be achieved again, we thought.

UNTIL last night when the genius came up [on US sports site Bleacher Report] with what can only be described as divine inspiration.

With the melody of ABBA’s  Dancing Queen, Richie prophetically warbles: ‘We’re going to beat Messi/by more than three/in the Champions League…’

Thanks to the possibility of Kevin been able to tune in to another dimension for fortuitous inspiration, Liverpool have got to another Champions League final and their first premiership title in 31 years now also seems possible.

FIGHT!
