Former 'Lie-chester' City striker Emile Heskey inspiration for YouTube rap
Former City striker Emile Heskey has become the subject of a bizarre YouTube video rap.
Eccentric Californian vlogger (video-blogger) Ray Sipe has chosen the 34-year-old footballer as the theme for one of his short YouTube music posts.
The American - who uses the name raysipeladygaga as his internet moniker - has uploaded hundreds of video songs including tributes to computer game character Super Mario, US President Barack Obama and one song where he links Sigmund Freud with RoboCop.
His Heskey tribute refers to Lie-chester City and runs through all of the striker's previous clubs. Heskey is currently playing for Australian club Newcastle Jets.
