Ex-Liverpool keeper Tony Warner has recently been on the brilliant Magic Sponge podcast recounting tales of his time at Anfield. The brilliant podcast frequently gets ex-players on the show for stories and hosts Jimmy Bullard and Rob Becket always get the best stories out of their guests.



The man they call ‘Bonus’, Tony Warner tells the boys about the time that he got into a tear up with the man that everyone loves to hate, Stan Collymore, laughing all the way, here is the keeper’s story.

So I think David James has poured water on my chair, to start with. So I swapped chairs, left the wet one alone. Now, I’m really looking forward to the game – my first start. But Stan comes and looms right over me and says, ‘I want my f*cking chair back!” Im like, “No.” He raises his voice then and says again, ‘I want my f*cking chair back!’

Everybody turns round at this point. Something’s going off. So I can’t get mugged off here, f*ck that. So he picks the chair up and comes walking towards me… I’m thinking, f*cking naively, he’s just gonna pour the water on me. 

Next minute he just swings the chair, a big heavy chair, trying to properly take my head clean off! So I put my arms up,and the chair just clatters my forearms. I knew if my arms weren’t there my head’s coming clean off! After he’s swung it, he’s then punched me straight away – he’s straight on me with a sweet right. 

So then I just stand up, swinging, swinging, smacking him, getting in a few myself! The pair of us are just trading! 

At this point, Stan’s upset a lot of people. Nobody likes him. So David James and Razor come up behind me and lend a bit of weight to my cause… They get Stan down, get him on the floor. All I remember is one has their elbow across his throat and the other is leaning across his legs. So he’s pinned! I’m thinking, ‘this cheeky c*nt threw a chair at me’ – so I just keep hitting him as many times as I can, until I got pulled off! 

He jumped up, so now we’re just snarling at each other. Roy Evans comes in and asks what’s going on. We just start scrapping again and as Evans comes in to stop it, I’ve just nailed him. I’ve accidentally nailed the gaffer!
