Old Trafford man gets the surprise of his life!
As a Manchester United legend he admitted hating everything about Liverpool and was once fined for a wild celebration in front of their fans – but Gary Neville is a secret Scouser.
Neville spent his entire playing career with the Red Devils and had a strong hate-hate relationship with their fiercest rivals.
The former defender, now a Mail on Sunday columnist and a pundit on Sky Sports, once said: ‘I can’t stand Liverpool, I can’t stand the people, I can’t stand anything to do with them.’
But it turns out the 36-year-old is descended from Liverpudlians as his great, great, great grandparents were from the home of The Beatles.
Larger-than-life funnyman James Corden hits Neville with the bombshell on Sky panel show A League of Their Own – to be shown on Friday.
Producers asked ancestry experts to dig into Neville’s background for a section of the show.

One can only imagine that Gary Neville is grateful this bombshell was revealed after he’d hung up his boots as he would surely have gotten an even more vociferous reception from Anfield fans.
Neville is sure to be reeling at this news and may feel the need to disown the portion of his family who descend from the very area he so clearly despises.
