Watch: MUTV Commentator Takes The Piss Out Of Man City Before Kick-Off In Spain

You can get away with a few things on a club-specific TV channel that you couldn't on a more public network.

MUTV commentator Stewart Gardner was joined by Paddy Crerand in the booth for Manchester United's trip to Celta Vigo in the Europa League on Thursday night, and after John Guidetti's 'Manchester is blue' comments during the week, he couldn't resist a pop at the club's Manchester rivals just before kick-off.

Much has been made about the lack of atmosphere at The Etihad Stadium at times, with Pep Guardiola even venting his frustration early on during his time as City boss, and Gardner made a remark about this as he noted the colours Celta Vigo would be wearing.

Sky blue everywhere you see, it's like being at Manchester City apart from the fact there's no empty seats and a good atmosphere.

Ouch. That is what the kids these days call 'savage'.

When Paddy Crerand tells you it's below the belt, you know it's a cheeky one.

United would go on to win 1-0 thanks to a lovely Marcus Rashford free-kick, but as Gardner claimed, the atmosphere was fantastic and it peaked when both sets of fans went mental for the theme song to 'The A-Team'.
