He seems to have been around forever, but James Milner has finally turned 30 years old.
The Liverpool skipper, who is known for being a boring character on social media channels, was given the kind of treatment you would expect from fans, who teased him outrageously on his special day.
Milner himself has always insisted that he has taken the banter and the jokes in his stride, so below we’ve collected the best jokes, memes and tweets posted for his 30th.
Oh my god, I'm older than James Milner? How, I thought he was like 45?

January 4th is such a nondescript, run-of-the-mill, and average day so it seems wholly appropriate to wish James Milner a Happy Birthday.
