Man Utd defender Ferdinand against Old Firm England move

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits he's against the Old Firm moving to England.

Ferdinand just hopes Rangers or Celtic never get the chance to play at Old Trafford regularly.

It's nothing to do with Tuesday night, he's been a fan of the Old Firm since attending an Ibrox clash in his Leeds days.

Ferdinand said: "I went to an Old Firm game at Ibrox and I enjoyed the atmosphere.

"I'm not a supporter of either team but I loved the atmosphere. It's a great occasion.

"But I don't know about Rangers and Celtic joining the Premiership.

"The Old Firm fans would be great, coming to England. But in terms of the logistics and history of the game I'm not so sure about it.

"Playing against each other in European games is fine, I enjoy it.

"But I don't think them moving south would sit well with me."
