Video: Northern Irish Footballer Tricks Tony Pulis Into Thinking He's Neil Lennon

A few days ago, Limavady United footballer Blain Morrison entertained football fans everywhere by managing to convince Tony Pulis that he was Neil Lennon and that he was looking for West Brom's Northern Irish international Gareth McAuley on loan.

Speaking to BBC NI, Morrison explained how the prank call came about.

I was with the team on Saturday night outside our social club and someone came up with a number for Tony Pulis, I rang him and I couldn't believe it when he called back.

I decided to pretend to be Neil Lennon because of the Northern Ireland accent and I asked about bringing Gareth McAuley on loan because he is a Northern Ireland player.


Morrison expected the call to last a few seconds before Pulis would catch, however, the West Brom boss was willing to have a decent chat with 'Lennon' about transfer options, even if he wasn't going to let McAuley go to Bolton.

Having said that he hopes Pulis is taking the prank in the right spirits, Morrison suggested that he has a new victim in mind for his next call but admits it may be a bit of stretch.


I would like to do Brendan Rodgers, but with the accent and him coming from Northern Ireland, it might be too hard.
