Former Irish international football star Jason McAteer was one of the founding members of Liverpool FC's 'Spice Boys' back in the mid-1990s.

Jamie Redknapp, Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman also featured in the Liverpool line-up and were known for hanging about with pop stars, spending lots of money and wearing truly hideous white suits.

But McAteer still carries a torch for the dodgy two-piece ensembles.

"The thing is, " he explained, "if we had actually won the 1996 FA Cup we would have looked a million dollars.

"Instead we lost and ended up looking like a million lira."
