Sunderland's McShane can't avoid comparisons with Man Utd hero Moran

Sunderland defender Paul McShane admits he's aware of comparisons with former Manchester United centre-half Kevin Moran.

"I've heard the comparisons before," McShane told the Guardian. "When I was at (Manchester) United, [the coach] Mick Brown said to me, 'You're going to be like Kevin Moran because of the way you go into challenges; you put your whole body into them'.

"Mick's at Sunderland now as the chief scout and he reminded me of that the other day after I'd got the head injury."
