Rumour has it singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi could be considering a career change as he's been spotted in Northern Ireland wearing a Cliftonville Football Club training jacket.

The Scottish musician was pictured donning the jacket alongside the north Belfast football team, who were in Belfast International Airport to travel to Wales for their Europa League preliminary round clash with Barry Town.

The snap was shared on Instagram by Belfast man Aidan Baxter, who captioned the photo: "Lewis Capaldi is a red!"

Capaldi was in Belfast to support The Killers playing a sell-out Belsonic gig at Ormeau Park, which he said had been one of his all-time favourite gigs.

"Thanks very much for listening to me talk sh*** and sing sh*** for an hour," said Capaldi as he closed his set.

"I just want to say a massive, massive, massive thank you to to The Killers for having us. That's a bit of a strange thing to say for me. This is a dream come true.

"This has honestly been one of my favourite f****** gigs we've ever done. Thank you so much for making it so special.

"If you've enjoyed this, please tell everyone you know about it. If you haven't enjoyed it, keep it to your f****** self."

He added: "What else is there left to say? Oh, aye: 'Ats us nai!'"
