The Tranmere player who called Loris Karius ‘f*cking sh*te’ last night is actually a Liverpool supporter, it’s been revealed.
Ben Tollitt was caught on camera telling Liverpool’s German goalkeeper exactly what he thinks of him last night, following a Karius mistake that got his side back into the game.
Liverpool won 3-2 but all anybody is talking about is Karius’s error and Tollitt’s reaction.
Upon delving a little, we can see that Tolitt is a big Red and even sent a message of support for Liverpool ahead of the Champions League Final, which Karius cost us (although he was suffering from concussion).

If you need further confirmation, there’s an article about Tollit in the Echo, here:
A few years ago, @bentollitt and I were playing Sunday league football together.

We wonder if his reaction to Karius’s mistake is partly due to the heartbreak we all suffered in Ukraine!
Who knows? There’s a chance it means absolutely nothing, of course, as reactionary things like this are said on a football pitch the entire team.
And we can imagine a few other Liverpool fans uttered the same…
