Man Utd and Celtic hero Crerand offers Amad Old Firm advice

Manchester United European Cup winner Paddy Crerand is backing Amad for a big Old Firm performance tonight.

The United midfielder is on-loan at Rangers and could start against Celtic.

Crerand played for Celtic for five years prior to coming to Old Trafford, and he's got a bit of advice for Amad going into his first Old Firm derby.

“It's a great opportunity for him, this," Crerand told

“The pressure of a Celtic v Rangers match is incredible. There is nothing like it anywhere.

“You don't know what it means unless you're living in Glasgow. It's bigger than Man City v Man United and maybe even Liverpool and Manchester United.

“The hatred between the fans isn't nice. It's got a nastiness to it sometimes, but as a player, it's great to play in those games. The atmosphere in the stadium is just fantastic.

“If the ground could fit 100,000 people, 100,000 would be there. The clamour for tickets is incredible.

“I watched Amad's first game at the weekend as it was on television and he certainly started off well. He'll soon understand what this game means to the people of Glasgow and being part of that experience will be a great lesson.

“The whole move should be a good one for him as he'll experience the pressure of a title race."
