Watch: Oldham fans have brilliant chant for Boris Johnson lookalike steward

Lower league football doesn't always get the headlines it deserves, but Oldham Athletic supporters might just be about to go viral after a brilliant chant during their game against Rochdale on Saturday afternoon.

They may have lost 1-0 away from home - a result that cements their position in the League One relegation zone - but Oldham's fans weren't going to let that ruin their afternoon.

Not after they spotted a steward at Rochdale's Spotland stadium who was the spitting image of former Mayor of London turned Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson.

While the poor bloke in the high vis vest must have wished he had been positioned at the other end of the ground, he certainly made a lot of Oldham fans' days for one simple reason - his hair cut that looks strikingly similar to the British politician's famously messy barnet.

Football chants are often pretty mundane, with the same teams rolling out the same chants all across England. But, we're pretty sure the below offerings haven't been heard this season...

'Boris Johnson the steward' seemed to take the whole thing in good spirit, though, even when one of his colleagues appeared to offer to move him away from the limelight.

While the chants might be a little too niche to go mainstream like last year's 'Will Grigg's on fire' from the Wigan Athletic faithful, it does remind us of another brilliant lookalike effort from West Ham fans a few season ago.

That time is was then Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey who, to Hammers fans at least, is the spitting image of Harry Potter's nemesis Voldemort.
