Si Ferry Meets…Barry Ferguson Ep 3 – UEFA Cup, Scotland/Burley Boozegate, Birmingham, Clyde

8068

In our final instalment with Barry Ferguson, the Scotland international takes us through the recovery from Paul Le Guen’s departure with Walter Smith returning as Manager and bringing success back to the club.

That success includes Rangers run to the UEFA Cup Final in 2008 which Barry looks back fondly on despite the regret of the team not doing themselves justice in the end.

The conversation moves on to the infamous Scotland camp under George Burley, labeled ‘Boozegate’ which led to the end of Barry’s Scotland and ultimately Rangers career. He talks openly and frank to Si about his perspective on the situation and what exactly happened over those few days.

The midfielder wraps up our chat by looking back on his time with Birmingham where he clinched a League Cup winners medal versus Arsenal as well as discussing his plans to get into coaching following his stint with lower league, Clyde.
