Phil Neville slams "idiot" brother Gary for ‘playing up to Sky Sports cameras’

Phil Neville has slammed his brother Gary for 'playing up to Sky Sports cameras' and ignoring him on his return to Old Trafford.

The younger Neville brother left Manchester United for Everton in 2005, and faced the Red Devils on a number of occasions during his eight years with the Toffees.

In one match, shortly after Neville's move to Goodison Park, the two siblings were captaining their respective teams at Old Trafford.

Neville recalls saying hello to his former team-mates Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Wes Brown, but adds he was ignored by his own brother Gary.

According to Neville, his older sibling eventually said hello once the Sky Sports cameras turned away, prompting the former Everton star to label Gary an "absolute idiot".

"I was speaking to him about it the other day," Neville told MUTV.

"It was one of the early games, and I went down the tunnel, and you just think, he's going to say hello. And he didn't. He's going to say something. I turned round.

"Giggsy said hello, Scholesy said hello. I think Wes [Brown] was there and said hello.

"And then there's a camera right in front of where the captains are and I thought, 'typical Gary – he's playing to the cameras, playing for show'.

"The minute we went past the camera, seriously, he went, 'all right Phil, how's it going?.

"What an absolute idiot. For the cameras, for Sky Sports and his image, he thought, 'I'm not saying hello to him'. I thought, 'Nah, that's not for me, kidda'."

On returning to Old Trafford to play against Man United, Neville added: "I hated it. Because you imagine the family.
