Manchester United fan gets tattoo of Gary Neville's celebration vs Liverpool

There's no doubt about it, Gary Neville's celebration against Liverpool back in 2006 is one of the most iconic moments in Premier League history. 

The former Manchester United captain made a point of celebrating in front of the travelling faithful after Rio Ferdinand scored a dramatic late winner against the Merseyside outfit nine-years ago. 

And one fan of the Red Devils will never forget that exact moment, as he's opted to get the celebration tattooed to his leg. 

In fact, the United supporter decided to tweet his hero earlier this week - with the photo attached - stating: "Hey @GNev2 had this done today. Love you mate."

And Neville, who is now a pundit for Sky Sports, clearly enjoyed the tweet, as he responded to the fan by stating: "Love you to!! Haha."

Neville's loyalty 

At the end of the day, throughout his playing days, you had to admire the Manchester United legend's loyalty to the club. The former right-back enjoyed an incredible stint at the Theatre of Dreams and no doubt enjoyed being the subject of abuse from so many rival sets of supporters. 

Every club is in need of a player that will give everything to the cause; Neville was just that for many years for the Red Devils. 

The rivalry 

It is, of course, no secret that Manchester United and Liverpool have quite the rivalry and it's Louis van Gaal's side who have clearly came out on top this season. 

Louis van Gaal's side, of course, completed the double over their rivals from Merseyside this season and look set to reclaim their place in next year's Champions League competition.

Both sides must improve 

One thing's for sure, though, both Manchester United and Liverpool are in need of improvement this summer. At the end of the day, both clubs will be desperate to maintain a title challenge in 2015/16, so must splash the cash sooner rather than later. 

United, under the Van Gaal regime, have seemingly already started their splurge with Memphis Depay on his way to Manchester. Reinforcements in midfield and defence are probably needed, too, if the Red Devils are serious about overhauling Chelsea next term.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have endued a torrid campaign, and must buy in striker department. Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli haven't been good enough this term, whilst Daniel Sturridge has struggled on the injury scene all season long. 

It's crucial the club manage to keep Raheem Sterling and find a replacement for outgoing captain Steven Gerrard.
