Last quote by Alex McCleish
My son Jon was into Championship Manager. He was constantly giving me names in South America. They come out the sky and say 'Lionel Messi is going to be the best player in the world'. He was 13 or 14 at the time. You dismiss it but Rangers were downsizing and we were looking for some quality in midfield. Barry Ferguson had gone down to Blackburn so we lost a guy who would have taken the ball in any stadium anywhere in the world. We needed players of that ilk again. Jan Wouters phoned Henk ten Cate, who was the assistant of Frank Rijkaard, the ex-Dutch international.feedback
