Photo: Verne Troyer returns to Leeds United, and supporters' priceless responses

Hollywood actor Verne Troyer is a returning guest of Leeds owner Massimo Cellino.

Hollywood actor Verne Troyer has surprisingly popped back up at Elland Road once again.

The Austin Powers star is a personal friend of club owner Massimo Cellino, and is on his second visit to Leeds United.

Troyer, who stands at just 2ft 9" tall, was pictured with the Italian in the boardroom, kitted out in clothing from the club store - no doubt intended for kids.

Cellino is as unpredictable as owners come, and his rapport with Troyer is one of the more bizarre connections the club has.

Toyer visited last season for the impressive 2-0 home victory over Derby County in November, which was really one of the high points in Leeds' season.

Days later Cellino was suspended by the Football League due to a tax conviction from his time in Italy, and had to stay away from the club for four months in early 2015.

With chief executive Adam Pearson recently resigned, who only joined the club in the summer, it appears Cellino is back to running the club his way - whatever that may bring...

Here is a look at the amusing responses of Leeds fans via Twitter to Troyer returning for another visit..
