Every Manchester united supporters favourite scouser doesn’t rate the Manchester derby. A week long Wayne Rugney media love-in culminates with a dismissal of the game’s significance…

You can take the boy out of Everton…It could be that the major tournament England flop’s two attempts to leave the Stretfords belie a longing for Merseyside as despite having not played against Liverpool for 19 months the wantaway striker cites matches against them as the bigger occasion:

‘Obviously United-Liverpool is a massive game over the years. City have had their success recently but I would probably say that United-Liverpool is still the biggest game.’

28 years old next month, Rugney has always been in tune with time honoured smug rag arrogance. It will be interesting to see how his words go down with the Manchester City dressing room this weekend. Further still, how he reacts to a legion of drooling hacks trouser sliming him all week.

Come On City.
