Jordan Pickford dismisses Celtic vs Rangers derby magnitude as Everton star names the REAL biggest derby in Britain

The captain of England maintains that the most significant match in Britain is taking place south of the border.

Prior to the forthcoming match between Celtic and Rangers, Jordan Pickford has maintained that the Sunderland vs. Newcastle United derby is the biggest derby in the nation.

The Scottish Premiership’s top spot is expected to be up for grabs when the Glasgow giants play at Celtic Park to close out 2023. Brendan Rodgers’ team is struggling to defend their title, while Philippe Clement is leading the Ibrox team to victory as he has gone undefeated since taking over in the dugout from Michael Beale. Furthermore, Pickford is focused on another match despite the massive match that will continue into the New Year for Scottish football.

On January 6, Eddie Howe’s English Premier League team will play the Black Cats in the FA Cup, a tie that ardent supporter Pickford insists is the biggest derby match in British history. The last Tyne-Wear derby took place in 2016, and at the time, Everton’s and England’s top player, turned hype man for the match, was questioned about it by beIN Sports.

When asked how much the match meant, Pickford said, “I don’t think there is a bigger derby in the country personally.” It’s comparable to Celtic vs. Rangers, in my opinion. “For me it’s one of the biggest derbies, atmosphere wise. It’s a great day out. For me the atmosphere is right up there.”
