Liverpool pair star in movie winding up Man Utd identities

Liverpool stars Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher are involved in a movie that takes the mick out of Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Sun says Gary Neville is also labelled a rat who "hates Scousers" in the same mickey-taking movie.

The Manchester United legends come under fire in a comedy called Fifteen Minutes That Shook the World.

It is a fictional account of events that inspired Liverpool's fightback against AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League Final and is sure to spark an Old Trafford backlash.

In one scene a Fergie "lookalike" called McTaggart phones a player, who resembles Neville, to celebrate Liverpool trailing Milan by three goals.

The Neville character is wearing a United No 2 shirt bearing the name 'Rat Boy' on the back and responds by singing about how he hates Scousers - a parody of the song United fans taunt at their bitter Anfield rivals.

When the news of Liverpool's stirring fightback - capped by their penalty shootout win - comes out, McTaggart is seen knocking back a bottle of scotch which has the words 'Manager of the Month but not as good as Bob Paisley' on it.

Kop skipper Gerrard, 29, and vice-captain Carragher, 31, have cameo roles in the film and they were joined by boss Rafa Benitez at the premiere on Monday night.
