Gary Neville has revealed that ex-Manchester United teammate Paul Scholes once joined in a hilarious derogatory chant about him and his brother.
The Red Devils’ legend was part of Sky Sports’ coverage of United’s clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon when he took to social media to tell the funny tale.
One of Neville’s closest friends and former teammates is Scholes who has built a reputation for his somewhat dry sense of humour.
And fans have regularly seen the banter flying between the two former stars.
Discussing a time when he and Scholes traveled to west London with United during their playing days, Neville told just how savage the ex-midfielder was.
Speaking on social media, Neville said: “You see this stand here in the background there? That’s the first-ever time that I heard the shout.
“There was some blokes about, 50-odd-year-old with flat caps on.

It was freezing and we were warming up and they started singing ‘if the Neville’s can play for England so can I’.
“Scholesy was warming up with me and Phil like we always did at right-back down there in that corner and started singing along with them. Little B*****d.”
