Where Do You Live


Why nominated

He was the spark that is currently missing from the side. If we were struggling to break down a defence he invariably created a few openings with his pace and trickery. There are periods in recent games that I have called McCann moments ie: we're playing the ball out of defence and suddenly run out of ideas, that's when we used to give the ball to Neil.

Memorable Games

The obvious one is the 4-3 cup final v Rangers where he was absolutely immense. But I particularly remember a late winner 1-0 v Hibs near the end of the 96/97 season which typified his ability to open up defences in tight games.

Other Comments

It pains me to see his talents being wasted with sporadic appearances at planet Ibrox.
