VIDEO: Phil Thompson Wears Awful Barry Manilow-esque Jacket On Sky For Charity

Phil Thompson gave us a good laugh for a great cause tonight when he turned up at the Gillette Soccer Special studio wearing a horrendous silk jacket.

Thompson would later reveal that he was wearing the jacket for the Marina Dalglish Appeal, set up by Kenny Dalglish’s wife after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2003.

Thompson claimed he was told if he wore the jacket on the show, someone would bid for it and help the charity.

Not that this heart warming gesture made it any less hilarious.

And fellow pundit Charlie Nicholas stole the show by comparing the Liverpool legend to Copacabana singer Barry Manilow:

Matt Le Tissier was having none of it though and joked that Thompson had simply made a terrible wardrobe error:

Well in Thommo!
