Liverpool stars in controversial film taking mickey out of Man Utd

Sir Alex Ferguson has been jokingly portrayed as a whisky-swilling drunk in a film starring Liverpool aces Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, reports The Sun. And Gary Neville is 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.

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 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.

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

United declined to comment on Liverpool playwright Dave Kirby's 43-minute film.
