What makes a cult player ?
For me it’s a player that came in on a low fee, someone who may not have been the most skillful but always give his all on the pitch and sometimes off it.
Quite possibly the greatest Estonian footballer that has ever lived, The 32 year old was a £4.5m singing from Augsburg in the summer of 2016.
The red God of Merseyside has gone on to make 44 appearances for the club, scoring two goals including his last minute winner against Burnley this season.
No cult hero list would be complete without big Igor Biscan, he looked like the love child of Sami Hyypia & Didi Hamann but had the skill of neither.
He spent 5 years at the club between 2000 to 2005, picking up a Champions league winners medal along the way.
We also have Biscan to thank for teaching our current Croatian centre back, Dejan Lovren everything he knows (but not everything big Igor knows) as they played together while at Dynamo Zagreb.
It is said that when Naby Keita was younger he wanted to grow up just to be like Titi Camara (this claim may just be made up).
While on the pitch his time at Anfield may not be that memorable, off the pitch Titi has proven himself as a cult hero with his constant trolling of Everton fans on Twitter.
Surprised I've not been linkedapproached for the vacant manager's post at Everton.

How is Michael Owen an ambassador ahead of this man?
The Czech equivalent of boring James Milner, and like Milner he also wore the famous No.7 shirt and could always be counted on when called upon, an industries winger who played his part in the greatest comeback of all time when Liverpool came from three behind to draw level with AC Milan with Smicer grabbing the 2nd goal.
Probably most famously known as not being El-Hadji Diouf, Diao joined the club in the same summer as his Senegalese team mate but unlike he took to the Merseyside fans.
He even asked Carra would the fans be okay with him joining Everton? did Coutinho ask Flanno does he think it would be okay if he joined Barca ? I doubt it very much.
Diao further cemented himself as a cult hero when he helped the Liverpool Legends to a 4-3 win over Real Madrid Legends.
Let us know who you think is a LFC cult hero.
