PREVIOUS MEETINGS

There have only been four competitive matches between the famous clubs.  The first was in the UEFA Champions League in October 2003, when Phil Neville scored the only goal of the game at Ibrox.

In the return fixture a month later, a 3-0 win was secured at Old Trafford, thanks to Diego Forlan's opener and a brace from Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Seven years later, in the same competition, a 0-0 home draw was followed by a 1-0 victory in Glasgow, courtesy of a late penalty by Wayne Rooney.

The teams have also met in friendlies, including a 1-0 loss in 1994 that featured a red card for Eric Cantona.
