Jason McAuley’s flight to Madrid to watch his team bid for Champions League glory will live long in the memory – but for the wrong reason – after discovering he was the only Tottenham fan on a plane full of Liverpool supporters.
The 45-year-old Irishman expected to see a few more Spurs shirts when he got on the direct flight to the Spanish capital, despite leaving from Liverpool’s John Lennon airport, on Friday morning.
But he said it was a “nightmare” flight after he was mercilessly ribbed by scores of rival fans, including friend of 20 years Antony Lockley.

Mr McAuley said: “I honestly thought there would be a small group of Spurs fans on the flight, I couldn’t believe it was just me – nightmare.
“Liverpool fans know their football … so I think they’re pretty open to a bit of friendly banter and that was pretty much the way it was, so it was all good.
“I was getting battered by them, all flight. It was good-humoured, but it was brutal.”
Mr Lockley, an ardent Liverpool supporter, said he enjoyed the flight – particularly after getting a picture alongside his friend and Anfield legend Jamie Carragher.
He said: “I spotted Jamie in the queue at the airport and I asked if he’d mind having a picture taken – I was in my Liverpool shirt and Jason was in his Spurs shirt – and he couldn’t have been nicer.
“He seemed very happy, very gregarious. The whole thing was great, really.”
