Something really shocking has turned up from Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy's past

Just when you think you can't love Mick McCarthy any more, he does this!

If there is one man who seems to have little time for modern football or fancy-dan players with bright coloured boots, then that has to be Mick McCarthy.

The Ipswich Town manager really is great value, though I'm not sure if he's hilarious because of what he says or because of his fantastic Yorkshire accent.

As a player, he was known for being an absolute giant Yorkshire rock in defence, first with Barnsley and then with Manchester City, Celtic, Lyon and Millwall, as well as playing for Ireland on 57 occasions. 

And as a manager, he's become known for his hardworking, tough-tackling teams who can challenge for promotion even on a shoe-string budget. 

So, with that being said, you can imagine our surprise when we came across a certain song which features man's man Mick McCarthy getting all soppy eye'd and singing about love.

It turns out that our Mick did a duet with former Chips singer, Linda Martin, with the duo singing everyone's favourite number from High Society,  'Did you Ever'.

HOW HAVE WE NEVER COME ACROSS THIS BEFORE! Blooming 'eck Mick! You've got a right decent set of lungs on you. 

Speaking to the Ipswich Star, McCarthy said he reckons he'll be ridiculed: "I wondered when that might appear.

"It was for charity. It’s just one of those things. When things are going well for you, someone comes and asks you if you’ll do it and you wonder at the time if it will come back to haunt you.

"When the audio is found I’ll have the p*** ripped out of me I’m sure".

C'mon Mick! You've got a great voice and we hope that if Ipswich get promoted, you give us another rousing rendition of this duet... amazing.
