Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville was an out-and-out Liverpool hater his entire life. He has had a stormy relationship with the crowd at Merseyside. The most disturbing fact, however, was his open hatred towards Liverpool and his infamous declaration: I can't stand Liverpool, I can't stand the people, I can't stand anything to do with them.

However, it has now been officially proven, by genealogists, that Neville's great-great-great grandparents were actually born in Liverpool! Ironically that makes Neville, now a Mail on Sunday columnist and Sky Sport football pundit, a Scouser.

The announcement, made by comedian and television actor James Corden, along with former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp and comedian John Bishop on a Sky panel show A League of Their Own, traveled like lightning.

The player was even presented with a Liverpool shirt with his name and the number 2 on the back. The producers of the Sky television show, reportedly, asked experts to investigate Neville's background.

The player refused to pose with the Liverpool shirt, according to a Daily Mail report.
