By Danny Wright
WWE superstar Sheamus has wished Liverpool a “happy birthday” after the club celebrated it’s 125th anniversary on Saturday.
The Reds were founded by John Houlding on 3 June 1892 and have since become England’s most successful club in European competition and are known for attracting support from the Republic of Ireland, where Sheamus was born.
The 39-year-old makes no secret of his affinity for the Reds, as well as Scottish champions Celtic, and has said how he is now looking forward to the future.
“Happy 125th Birthday to Liverpool. Here’s to the next 125 years. Thanks for the great memories and many more to come,” said the Dublin-born wrestler on his personal Twitter account on Saturday.
