Luke Littler in Glasgow accent confession as meeting with Man Utd icon clues him in before Hydro hype train

Darts prodigy Luke Littler admits he found Sir Alex Ferguson's thick accent hard to keep up with days out from 10,000 Glaswegians cheering his every throw.

The 17-year-old has followed up his epic run to the world championship finals with red-hot form which has him in third place in the Premier League with match night three taking place at the Hydro on Thursday. The travelling Littler hype train will roar into the city with natives desperate to watch the sport's breakout star in person.

Littler doesn't often need a second take at the oche, however, he may need some help over the chants he's sure to be serenaded with. The Manchester United superfan admits Sir Alex's Glasgow accent remains strong 38 years after he left his home country to reawaken a sleeping giant.

The pair met recently and 'The Nuke' shared what he was told by one of football's greatest ever. He said: "I also met Sir Alex at United-Spurs a few weeks ago. That was good. My dad had seen their glory years, witnessed '99, and so it was good for him to meet him. It was good to chat. I didn't get much out of him, because of his accent, but he did say keep going and stick to it."

Littler reached the semi finals in Cardiff and was runner-up to Michael Van Gerwen in Berlin. He will be aiming to go one better in Glasgow and is sure to prove popular in front of a sold out darts-loving crowd.
