Shelvey: Liverpool pal Spearing my hero

Jonjo Shelvey admits Liverpool teammate Jay Spearing is his hero!

Liverpool's No.33 netted his first goal in a red shirt during the FA Cup 3rd round victory over Oldham Athletic as he partnered Spearing at the heart of the Reds' midfield.

"Jay is a top, top player. I think he has proved that when he's in the team," Shelvey told

"I felt really sorry for him against Fulham when he was shown the red card. I thought it was a proper old fashioned tackle.

"I look up to Jay, even though I've played more games in my career. He's been around the Liverpool squad for a long time where it's harder to get games."
