'TRUE love' Alastair Campbell tweeted at the weekend. 

But we're not sure whether the caption for his snap is referring to his pet pooch or his favourite rugby league team. 

The tweet from Tony Blair’s former spin doctor caused quite a stir at the weekend as he could clearly be seen wearing a Warrington Wolves training top. 

The Last Leg presenter and Warrington Wolves PDRL player Adam Hills replied saying 'I love Warrington Wolves too' while plenty of other fans said they were delighted to see him in primrose and blue. 

We have had a look back in our archives to see where the well-known Burnley Football Club fan's love for the Wire developed and found in December 2015 he had visited the training ground to give a team talk

Speaking at the time, manager Tony Smith added: "The boys loved it and I couldn't believe how many were interested in politics. 

"We like to educate our young players and give them varying views on life so it was a great insight and very entertaining."


Perhaps former Warrington Wolves pitchside announcer Dominic Walker has also had an influence as he is now the announcer at Burnley FC. 

However it started it just goes to show, once a Wire always a Wire.
