Liverpool fans are loving what James Milner has tweeted after 0-0 draw v Everton

If you aren’t following James Milner on Twitter yet then you’re missing out on some absolute gold.

The Liverpool midfielder finally signed up to the social networking website last month and instantly endeared himself to everybody by posting a photo of himself ironing.

There’s been a running joke for some time now that Milner is boring – there’s even a ‘Boring James Milner’ Twitter account, which has over 600,000 followers – and the 32-year-old has been playing up to that, with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek, over recent weeks.

Back on April 1 he posted a photo of himself measuring Mini Eggs – chocolate sweets for those outside of the UK – adding: “What Easter is all about… trying to find the perfect sized mini egg 🧐 #10mm #HappyEaster.”

He’s quickly becoming one of Twitter’s must-follow accounts with his dry sense of humour.

Milner was in action for Liverpool against Everton this afternoon at Goodison Park.

The two sides played out a rather uninspiring 0-0 draw, with Milner replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 68th minute.

After the match, he tweeted: “Disappointed not to win that, but will take another clean sheet. Now time to recover & get ready for Tuesday 👊🏻 #17derbiesunbeaten”

However, it was his following tweet, posted roughly an hour later, which Liverpool fans couldn’t stop laughing at.

Taking the mickey out of himself again, Milner posted a photo of himself and referee Michael Oliver both tying up their shoelaces during the Merseyside derby, alongside the caption “Double knot races are never boring! #roundthebunnyear #hooploopandswoop 🐰👟🤗”

Milner will soon be giving Peter Crouch a run for his money for the title of most entertaining football-run Twitter account at this rate.
