Aye wee Ian is one of the people and the original guitarist he replaced in SLF Henry Cluney is also a bear. Hank tends to talk more about Arsenal in public though as its doesn't carry the same rhabid response. Jake Burns on the other hand is a Newcastle fan.
A friend of mine organised a group of eight of us to go to the Scottish Cup Final in 1999 and Gordon was one of the company. This was when he was well known but not a megastar.
At half time we had 'nibbles'/'finger food' in hospitality and were discussing the first half when a female Sellick supporter in a white 'trouser suit' and a green t-shirt came up to Ramsey and said, "You're that chef from the telly. I don't know your name but are you Ainsley?"
I saw him at the same match in the concourse before kick off.....some wee smart arse wandered over and said "no getting a burger Gordon"..."%^*& Off" was the reply ...he's quite a tall gent Mr Ramsey......
