Liverpool’s Milner goes viral, snaps coronavirus gloom

Liverpool star James Milner has become a
social media star in playing up to his no frills image by filming
himself doing domestic chores whilst the Premier League is suspended due
to the coronavirus outbreak.

The 34-year-old former England

one as a response to team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain posting a
glamorous video of himself and his pop star girlfriend Perrie Edwards
dancing on their stairs.

After rationing his tea bags, the 61-times capped Milner took to his garden and filmed himself nose down to the lawn clipping the grass with a pair of scissors and a ruler to ensure each blade was the same height
