YOU’RE A MAS­SIVE COCK, PIERS! Footie leg­end Neville slams him over Ra­heem tat­too com­ment

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

OUT­BURST: Neville Southall UN­DER FIRE: Ster­ling with his ma­chine gun tatt FORMER Ever­ton leg­end Neville Southall has sparked a huge row with TV loud­mouth Piers Mor­gan af­ter call­ing him a ‘mas­sive cock!’

The ex-goal­keeper was talk­ing about Eng­land winger Ra­heem Ster­ling’s con­tro­ver­sial tat­too of a ma­chine gun when he com­pared the Good Morn­ing Bri­tain pre­sen­ter to a huge John­son.

The 59-year-old Wales star said: “That was brought up by some prick. Piers Mor­gan is a prick. What gives him the right to say what can be on your body? If Ster­ling had tat­tooed a mas­sive cock on his leg I would say, ‘It re­minds me of Piers Mor­gan’.”

That caused Mor­gan, 53, to hit back, say­ing the two-time league win­ner was not fit to clean Ar­se­nal keeper David Sea­man’s gloves.

He said: “I was ex­er­cis­ing the same right that Mr Southall has to call me a ‘mas­sive cock’.

“It’s called free speech. To be fair, if I wasn’t good enough to clean David Sea­man’s gloves, I’d be this bit­ter too.”

The Ar­se­nal fan’s re­sponse caused an out­pour­ing of sup­port for Southall on Twit­ter with even ri­val Liver­pool fans back­ing him.

EuanRCD wrote: “Im a Liver­pool fan and @NevilleSouthall is the best Bri­tish keeper I’ve seen in my lifetime. Eas­ily bet­ter than Sea­man.”

While Mark McKeown added: “@ NevilleSouthall won foot­ball writers award and was a Bal­lon d’Or nom­i­nee, both very rare for keep­ers – dif­fer­ent league to Sea­man!”

But Mor­gan dou­bled down say­ing: “Only one of them was called ‘Safe Hands’ & he wasn’t called Neville.”
