TalkSport host Alan Brazil has admitted that Rangers used to make him feel sick whenever they would cross the half-way line in Old Firm derby clashes against his beloved Celtic at Hampden Park.
Hoops fan Brazil and ex-Gers player and manager Ally McCoist were discussing the huge atmosphere when the two Glasgow giants meet each other with McCoist claiming that he would not dare leave his house if he was to be on the losing side in the derby match.
Brazil, who spent some of his youth career at Celtic but never played in the senior team, admitted that it was a regret of his to never play in the big Scottish derby, but has revealed that he knows just how high-stakes of a game it is due to his feeling whenever Rangers used to attack against his side.
“[The derby game is] magic to me. I used to feel, and you’d have been the same when you were a kid, when Rangers crossed the half-way line, I’d feel sick,” said Brazil as shown on his Sports Breakfast Twitter account on Thursday.
“Especially at Hampden in cup finals, I’d feel sick.”
“If you got beat you couldn’t go outside!”

Rangers and Celtic have shared a unique rivalry over the years that has usually always been tightly contested until recent years.
Since Gers’ financial meltdown in 2012 they have returned to the Scottish Premiership and failing to come close to winning against Brendan Rodgers’ superior side.
Last term they finished third in the table and suffered two 5-1 losses to the Hoops with Graeme Murty being the only man to avoid a defeat in charge when Clint Hill earned a draw with a late equaliser in March.
