We all know that Gary Neville loves to hate Liverpool.

The former right-back played for Manchester United more than 600 times and helped them to overtake Liverpool’s record of 18 league titles.

He infamously infuriated Liverpool fans after United’s last-minute winner against them in January 2006 by running over to the away end and celebrating passionately, receiving a £5,000 fine in the process.

But Kopites like to hit back at Neville and often claim there’s a Liverpool scarf buried beneath his swimming pool. There’s a story that two builders, who were Liverpool fans, hid one of their scarves under a tile in Neville’s swimming pool when carrying out some building work for the Sky Sports pundit.

Neville has finally responded to those claims and is adamant that it’s not true.

“There's one thing I simply cannot accept,” he wrote in a piece for the Players’ Tribune, per the Mirror.

"There's a bit of folklore about two Scouse brothers who were doing work on my house a few years back.

"It's something that's never been proven and probably never will be.

"I don't even live in that house any more, but I'm going to put it in my will that if anybody ever finds that bloody scarf, they must follow my final wish — burn it.”

True or not, Neville will be in attendance at Anfield tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool take on Jose Mourinho’s United.

The home side will go joint-top with Manchester City and Arsenal if they win, while the Red Devils will go level with their opponents if they come away with all three points.

Before the match even kicks-off, there will be an intriguing battle in the Sky Sports studio as Neville and Ryan Giggs take on Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football.

Klopp and Mourinho will then do battle on the touchline as their players clash in what is sure to be a pulsating affair.
