Zero f***s given: Shay Given more interested in his chicken dinner than Mo Salah's screamer

Mohamed Salah was hailed a god by Liverpool fans last night as his goal helped the team secure their place back at the top of the Premier League.

The 25-yard goal, that put the team ahead at 2-0, was celebrated by Sky Sports pundits who jumped from their chairs and dropped their jaws in astonishment.

All except one.

Donegal man, Shay Given decided that his chicken dinner was more exciting than the impressive strike.

The former Ireland player barely even looked up from his plate to acknowledge that a goal had been scored.

Of course, the footage went viral on Twitter.

Given has since taken to Instagram to repost the footage with the caption: “Think I was more interested in the chicken Mo Salah than the real @mosalah #hungryhorse”
