The England right-back is enjoying a regular run in the side as United prepare to face Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday, but given his injury problems, Brown has nothing but sympathy for long-serving defender Neville, who has been sidelined since March with an ankle problem.
Brown said: "I have been here for more than 10 years and know what Gary is capable of and what he has achieved. Just to come in for him all season has been perfect for me. I hope he will be fit as soon as possible and we will see what happens then. I will just continue to give it my best."
