Some Liverpool fans are split as legend predicts new deal for 33-year-old

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has predicted James Milner will be handed a new deal at Anfield.

Milner has been a trusted player for Liverpool since joining in 2015.

The utility man always gives 100% and is adored for his commitment to the cause by the Reds faithful.

“It would be absolutely crazy, he’s been a huge part of this year again.
