GARY NEVILLE shared a brilliant video and then admitted Manchester United fans SHOULD be getting “carried away” after his old club went top of the Premier League.
The Red Devils club legend posted on social media showing him humming the song United fans used to sing for him from the terraces.
To the tune of ‘London Bridge is Falling Down’, the lyrics go ‘Gary Neville he’s a red, he hates Scousers.’
While trying to hold back laughter Neville captioned the video ‘See Ya Sunday’.
The retired right-back, who won eight league titles and two Champions Leagues in 602 appearances for the club, posted the clip ahead of the mammoth clash between bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester United on Sunday.
The game has taken on huge significance after United beat Burnley – their ninth win in 11 – thanks to a deflected Paul Pogba volley.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are now three points clear at the top of the table heading into their clash with the defending champions.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Neville said: “It’s a big win with what’s at stake. To go top of the league before Sunday – it feels like a big moment.
“Six to eight weeks ago you were never thinking Manchester United would be anywhere near this position.
“Yet now, they find themselves with something building, a spirit growing, you can see the way they are celebrating with each other.
“There’s a resilience that’s been built off of some performances that haven’t been great… but they’ve won and you get confidence from that.
“Now they’re starting to play better and there are players that they’ve got that are really top quality and are starting to show that in a more consistent fashion.
“It’s a little bit more exciting, I’m really going to enjoy this next three or four days, I really am.”
He then warned that it could all “turn around” quickly in a topsy-turvy season that has seen Chelsea and Liverpool impress before struggling and Man City start poorly before surging in recent weeks.
But Neville, who was famously fined after running the length of the pitch to celebrate in front of Livepool fans in 2006, said United supporters should enjoy the next few days.
“It shouldn’t stop Manchester United fans getting carried away in the next few days,” added Neville, “Why shouldn’t they?
“It’s been a really difficult few years where its looked like Manchester United are a million miles away from the top of the league.
“So to be three points clear of a really good Liverpool side – in January – is something that isn’t expected.
“For any pundit, United fan, even the manager, this season it was about getting closer to Liverpool and Man City and they’re doing that.
“I don’t think anyone is saying Manchester United are going to win the league.
“But the fact they are in a title race… wow. I never would’ve imagined it and you’ve got to give credit to the players because I’ve been critical, along with a lot of other people in the last few years.
“The standard has been well below the level that the club expects, that the fans expect but they’re doing really good things at this moment in time.
“In the next few days it’s time to have a little bit of fun.
“I don’t think it’ll be a comfortable few days for Liverpool.
“I don’t think they believed United would be anywhere near them, or see them as a competitor or threat, this season.”
