    Just caught up on Fantasy Football club on Sky and he was on it.

    Big man spoke briefly about us and only had good words to say. Said that if 'any player watching has an opportunity to play for celtic, they should run up there!"

    Mjallby, Lambert and Larsson were all in his best XI.

    Good character. Didn't know either but he has made £15m from investment banking since retiring. Has a degree in banking.

    Read there that he apparently rejected a deal to stay.

    He's another * that can go and * himself!

    We rescued him from his Spurs nightmare and he repayed us by * off to Watford when he was offered a full time gig here.

    Big-nosed fannybag!

    Now he's made a mint, he probably realises just how stupid he was placing money and a nothing club in the south, over continuing to play for one of the greatest clubs in the world.

    * him.

    Probably regrets it now you would imagine but he comes across well.

    Clearly enjoyed his time here. Only he can tell you why he * off back down south. Probably the same reason players do nowadays.

    He always seems to have nothing but good words to say about his time at Celtic.

    Bit of a sore one when he rejected to stay on with us but only he can answer the reason for that, we don't know the circumstances.

    He was excellent for us.

    From my memory he was trying to push O Neill for a right few grand extra. He was prepared to stay, but money matters to some more than football. Anyway, great player at the back and a good reader of the ball.
    Don't think he set the world on fire with Watford.

    liked him and thought he would sign but lured by the £££s down south, he seems to have regretted it though

    I was told about a year ago, back when there were elections for UEFA president when folks like Figo were running, that Ramon Vega was planning a bid to become the UEFA president. Completely forgot about it until I saw this thread.

    Aye, he spoke about it on the show.

    Seems to be a bit of a braniac. You can get it on catch up if you have Sky!

    if he had have stayed then we probably wouldn't have signed bobo balde so i think everything worked out ok.

    I looked at his stats on Wikipedia and seen he only scored 4 goals for us is this correct? I am sure he had 6 or 7 at the very least.
