Gary Neville puts Liverpool fan in his place after Manchester United criticism

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has completely destroyed one Liverpool supporter on Twitter after the Anfield fan made a derogatory comment about his old club.

The retired Red Devils defender is pretty prolific when it comes to dishing it out on social media, giving as good as he gets from various football fanatics up and down the country.

In his new role as a Sky Sports pundit, Neville has gained more popularity from the wider football family thanks to his insightful analysis of the Premier League, but that doesn't stop the odd few online trolls taking it too far when it comes to offering outspoken criticism.

In response to a recent tweet by the ex-England international on Friday morning, divulging news of a forfeit that his old Liverpool foe - and now colleague at Sky Sports HQ - Jamie Carragher would have to accept as a result of a lost bet last season, David Thompson (or @DTommoLFC) pleaded with the former Reds defender not to partake in the practical joke which involved him putting on a shirt representing his bitter rivals.

The irate fan referred to the Manchester United jersey as a "s*** stained rag" and warned Carragher he risked catching "all manner of diseases" by wearing it.

Neville provided a hilarious response to the distasteful tweet, making the Liverpool supporter look pretty stupid and probably making him wish he'd never got involved in the online altercation in the first place.
