Old Firm divides Blades

5 September 2013

Stephen McGinn says moving to Sheffield United feels like being back home, given the strong influence of Scotsman in the dressing at Bramall Lane.

This ultimately leads to a divide in terms of the Old Firm, but that's doesn't bother McGinn as his team have just qualified for the Champions League group stages.

He commented: "I'm loving it here and I'm proud to be at a great club like Sheffield United.

"Everyone gets on well behind the scenes and of course there's a lot of banter between us Scots.

"Jamie (Murphy) is a massive Rangers fan. You'll never see him wearing a green bib in training, seriously!

"Obviously I'm Celtic so I'm always chipping away at him. He's really quiet because there's not a lot he can come back with at the moment!"

Switching the attention back to the Blades, the former Watford midfielder added: "All my focus is on doing well for us, for United, this was an important move for me.

"I want to establish myself here and kick-on. There's a good feeling around the place so hopefully I can keep on improving and contribute to a successful season."
