Gary Neville To Wear Liverpool Shirt On Sky Sports After Losing Bet

Gary Neville, the man who once sprinted across Old Trafford to celebrate in front of thousands of Liverpool fans, will now wear their famous colours after losing a bet to fellow pundit Jamie Carragher.

In fact, the former Manchester United right-back must wear the shirt with 'Shaqiri 23' on the back ahead of the new campaign.

To give the bet some background, both Sky Sports pundits went head to head in a penalty shoot-out on the Premier League Launch show on Tuesday evening.

Neville must regret proposing a bet before he missed his spot-kick. It was never going to end well, Gary.

Take a look at how the bet came to light:

It looks like Neville will wear the shirt on Sky Sports in the coming weeks after he said the following quote before Carragher saved his penalty:

"You've got to wear a United shirt, or I've got to wear a Liverpool shirt when you've felt your way back in a show in a few weeks." he said.

Moments later, Carragher slotted away and the bet was done. Social media loved it, of course:

Tune in to Sky Sports in the coming weeks to witness this priceless moment.
