Irish wrestler has Neville in his sights

Even in retirement Gary Neville still feels the wrath of the red half of Merseyside, but this time he may have annoyed the wrong Liverpool supporter.

During a visit to Anfield, Dublin-born WWE star Sheamus said he wants to 'brogue kick' the former Manchester United defender.

Neville will want to steer clear of this 6ft 4in fighting Irishman (right), whose trademark finishing move makes Eric Cantona's kung-fu kick look like a 'Strictly Come Dancing' manoeuvre.

"I'd definitely like to brogue kick that Gary Neville fella," Sheamus told Liverpool TV, ahead of a Smackdown World Tour Show in the city.

"I don't know what it is about him. I know he played for Manchester United and there is a big rivalry between Liverpool and them, but every time you look at him he has an 80-year-old granny's face on him -- he looks as though he's eaten 10 bags of lemons. I never liked him at all."
