Rangers stuff starts about an hour in
£4m back then for a guy who was 33 or whatever was 100% a vanity signing and summed Murray up. All about the ego and getting a few headlines in the record and the sun.Always wondered if he was a Murray vanity signing at the time.Not saying he wasn't a good big player but I just don't think he is what Advocaat would have been looking for
I thought he did ok for us, had Larsson in his back pocket in the 99 cup finalCame across okay actually.
No a bad career when you consider he won the treble in 22 games with Rangers, won the EPL and walked out Scotland as captain in the opening game of the world cup agasint Brazil.
Ironic that Batty hates Le Saux because Le Saux absolutely loves Batty.Big Colin was being very generous when he said that Mutton was "an acquired taste"! Was interesting to hear that Batty hated Le Saux as i had always assumed that the fisticuffs they exchanged in that European game was just a frustrating spur of the moment thing.
Harsh - despite playing for them and not having the greatest interview technique, he’s always very partial and unbiased.
Met him and his wife good few times through work just after he signed & they were both lovely down to earth people. No heirs or graces about either of them.Have to add, he’s one of the nicest players I’ve met, I was a kid and I also gave him a letter and a month or so later I received a letter back with a load of signed photos. I was absolutely over the moon, so fair play to the guy for putting a big smile on a kids face! Knowing that he was a gent meant I really did feel terrible for him when his wife fell sick and he struggled to cope with her passing, poor guy.
A European game at home to either Parma or Leverkeusen IIRC.....A great big guy. Remember he took one flush on the face to keep it out of our net. Braveheart right enough.
