Darts LIVE as Peter Wright left red-faced while 'darting freak' Littler shines

Phil Taylor has tipped Luke Littler to become one of the ‘best players ever’.

His comments came before Littler’s debut victory at Ally Pally.

He said: “I’m predicting he will be one of the best players ever,” The Power said. “He’s the best [teenager] I’ve ever seen in my life. We’ll see what happens over the next 10 years, and what happens over the next five years when he’s earned a few bob and wants to enjoy himself.

“Naturally when you’re 16, 17, 18 [you want to go out and enjoy yourself], and the lad could be a millionaire. But then you’ve got to stay in and dedicate yourself, and that’s going to be a bit difficult for the lad.”
