'We are the champions' - Shaq sends musical congratulations to Northampton

Northampton Town were crowned League Two champions last month and they received musical congratulations from one of their newest - and most famous - supporters, Shaquille O'Neal.

O'Neal emerged as surprise fan of the Cobblers earlier this season due to his link with Northampton chairman Kelvin Thomas, with the retired NBA great hosting a show on Thomas' Shaq-Fu radio station.

Earlier this season, the giant former Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat star, a four-time NBA champion, sent a motivational message to Chris Wilder's side.

And, with Northampton having wrapped up the title last month to end a seven-year stay in the fourth tier, O'Neal posted a video in which he provided a take on famous Queen hit 'We are the champions' while wearing a Northampton scarf to pay tribute to their achievement.

The big man enjoying our success as League 2 Champions. Thanks for the support Shaquille O' Neal. We may need a bigger bus for the open top parade.....
