GARY NEVILLE sparked bemusement amongst fans after saying he had talking parrots on his shoulders giving him opinions.
The co-commentator was the focus of a lot of fan attention during Tottenham's action-packed 4-1 defeat to Chelsea.
There was plenty to talk about for Neville as he tried to dissect a number of controversial decisions made by referee Michael Oliver and his VAR team led by John Brooks.
And when discussing Cristian Romero's kick on Ruben Colwill, Neville said he had two parrots on his shoulders giving him his opinions.
He said: "I'm 50/50. I've got a parrot on one shoulder saying red and a parrot on the other saying yellow."
Fans were left perplexed by Neville's strange comment, with one mocking Neville's previous remark that he thinks of holidays as mini-retirements.

They said: "Has Gary Neville just said he’s got a parrot on his shoulder saying yellow card and another saying red? A parrot?
"He needs a two-week mini-retirement. He’s losing the plot on that gantry."
Another added: "The madness of this game has really distracted from Gary Neville talking about having a parrot on each shoulder giving him opinions about red cards."
And a third wrote: "Gary Neville has parrots on his shoulders… eh?"
