“A lifelong Rangers fan and one of those boys lucky enough to have signed for the club, I would have loved nothing better than becoming a first team regular.
Sadly it wasn’t to be, but I still enjoy watching my boyhood heroes and recall one match in particular. Celtic 0-3 Rangers in 1999, a match dubbed later as the ‘Shame game’ for the trouble during and after a volatile title win for Rangers under Dick Advocaat.
Me and my mate Matt McCafferty have been friends since I was 16 and travelled on the District bus to the match.
I always call this game, ‘Neil McCann day’, as the tricky winger scored two with Rod Wallace bagging the other. There’s nothing better than winning the title at the home of your great rivals. As Neil McCann rounded Stewart Kerr to make it 3-0, we could see the Celtic fans heading for the exits. We were waving cheerio and then burst into song ‘We can see you sneaking out.’ Hilarious!”Back to The Football Family
