Liverpool’s unique culture, as a city known for its football as well as producing famous musicians such as The Beatles, was always going to drive famous names to Anfield. As one of the biggest clubs in the world, they’ve managed to attract some A-listers, too, from Avengers stars to members of the Homeland cast.
In general, the trend seems to be that where there is a celebrity, there is a secret Liverpool fan. And, with that said, we delved deeper into the ten most famous Liverpool supporters, courtesy of the Liverpool Echo.
