Manchester United captain Gary Neville has stuck the knife into Liverpool after claiming he has no sympathy for their struggles this season.
Neville has often incurred the wrath of the Anfield faithful following his outspoken comments concerning his club's bitter rivals.
But his latest outburst is certain not to endear him further to fans down the other end of the East Lancs Road.
Neville has spoken out following Liverpool's failure to reach the last 16 of the Champions League this week.
"As a team, you get what you deserve don't you?" he said following United's own European disappointment after failing to sew up Group B following Wednesday's 1-0 home defeat to Besiktas.
"We are where we are because we deserve to be there and it's the same with Liverpool. We went out ourselves a few years back. They just haven't performed well enough in the Champions League to get the results."
Speaking about United's surprise defeat to the Turkish champions, he added:"I'm extremely disappointed. We didn't convert our chances and didn't do enough in the last third.
"Their goal set us back a little bit. It gave them something to hang on to but usually we'd expect to score a goal in 95 minutes at Old Trafford. We just didn't manage it."
