Marty's my darling; GIRLS ALOUD NADINE HAS CRUSH ON O'NEILL.

Byline: STUART MacDONALD

GIRLS Aloud star Nadine Coyle knows how to sort the older men from the Bhoys - she has a huge crush on Celtic manager Martin O'Neill.

The sexy singer has revealed that she's turned on by the 51-year-old Parkhead boss's passion for football.

Nadine, 18, who shot to fame on Popstars: The Rivals, grew up a massive Hoops fan in her native Nothern Ireland.

She watches all their games while on tour and even goes to bed wearing nothing but a Celtic top with "Larsson 7" on the back. And her boyfriend Neil McCafferty has no objections - because the 19-year-old Charlton Athletic midfielder hopes O'Neill will sign him up.

Derry-born Nadine said: "I have been a Celtic fan for many years now. In my hometown, Celtic matches are a really big deal.

"Everyone is really up for it with the green and white tops and the scarves.

"I must admit I am an especially big admirer of Martin O'Neill.

"He is so passionate about the game and that's what I like to see in a man.

"And he's from Northern Ireland as well, just like me, so what more could a girl ask for?

"My boyfriend Neil is a big Celtic fan too, of course.

"In fact, he wants to play for them so you never know, I could maybe have a word with Martin if I was ever lucky enough to meet him."

Girls Aloud, who have scored four top three hits in less than a year, are riding high in the charts with their version of the Pointer Sisters' classic Jump (For My Love).

Nadine, whose favourite player is Henrik Larsson, also praised Celtic fans for their FIFA Fair Play award.

She was cheered by Hoops supporters heading to Seville for the UEFA Cup Final at Luton Airport in May.

The brunette added: "Celtic did amazingly well last season to get to the final and it was a great atmosphere at the airport that day with all the fans.

"They are definitely the most dedicated support in the world.
