Neville takes aim at Celtic with huge praise for Rangers

Gary Neville has confirmed the greatest atmosphere he ever experienced during his illustrious playing career was … Rangers.

You guessed it. Of course it was.

Quite frankly we’re not sure what he meant by his playing days and Ibrox and Galatasaray (probably the atmosphere in the Turkish capital) but the fact he extolled Rangers as the greatest atmosphere ever, on top of the widespread praise Rangers fans are getting for quite close to the best Ibrox atmosphere of all time on Thursday will certainly go down well with the support.

What may go down even better is the fact he slagged off Celtic as being nowhere near Rangers for atmosphere.

Celtic fans have liked to believe their stadium and fans are the greatest for atmosphere, and while one or two European heavyweights have backed up their case, it’s rare in these incidences they then poke fun or ridicule the opponent.

But Neville explained Celtic Park wasn’t even close to Ibrox.

Rangers fans will love that.

  1. I can believe this. I was lucky enough to be present at the semi against Bayern Munich in 1972 when Derek Parlane did a great job marking Beckenbaur from whom all the hood moves from Bayern came. He also scored the second goal. The atmosphere was amazing especially when we heard that Celtic had lost out in their Semifinal. Both played in Glasgow on the same night. Another great atmosphere in Seville.

  2. I must admit ive been suprised how many celtic fans have actually given us praise for reaching the final,watching a Barry Ferguson piece on youtube lastnight was full of them,one even saying he cheered when we scored and wanted us to go and win it for scottish fitba,unbelievable indeed
    Its a funny old game the fitba💪

  3. Must be a semi-final thing. I remember being told about the incredible atmosphere at the ECWC semi against Slavia Sofia on the way to the 1967 final. I was at some of the games in that run but never had a ticket for that game unfortunately.
