Ferdinand gets ‘carried away’ celebrating Manchester United goal

Rio Ferdinand made it well and truly clear how much Manchester United still mean to him when he celebrated Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s equaliser against Liverpool on Sunday.

The retired defender spent 12 years playing for the Red Devils before leaving for a short spell at Queens Park Rangers in 2014.

Ferdinand now spends much of his time as a TV pundit, and at the weekend, while watching the clash with BT Sport, the former footballer could not remain neutral.

Liverpool went ahead just before the half-hour mark through James Milner’s penalty, which was awarded after Paul Pogba handled the ball in the box.

With seven minutes of normal time on the clock, Zlatan Ibrahimovic found an equaliser for United, but he could not inspire a comeback as both clubs took a share of the spoils.

The BT Sport cameras picked up Ferdinand’s wild celebration when Ibrahimovic’s goal was scored, and the 38-year-old later admitted that he went slightly over the top.

Hahahaha okay okay.. maybe I got bit carried away with #Zlatan equaliser today.. it's in the blood!! #MUFC #MUNLIV
