Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler feels there wouldn't be a problem if a current player came out publicly.
Fowler told BBC's Football Focus: "Certainly it wouldn't be a problem in a dressing room now. I don't think it would be a problem on the terraces now."
During a match in 1997, Fowler taunted Graeme Le Saux as being gay - he is not - and has recently apologised.
Talking about the Le Saux incident he added: "If things happen on a pitch the thing is you learn from it and I know I certainly have."
