Si Ferry Meets… Stephen McManus Episode 2

7814

In Episode 2 of our sit down with Stephen McManus, the big defender starts with telling Si about how his appointment as Celtic captain came about following Neil Lennon’s departure from the club.

With the armband came big responsibility as he reflects on his first season as captain as the team had to haul back a massive points deficit in the last few games of the 07-08 season to clinch their 3rd title in a row and Stephen’s first as skipper.

Stephen also reflects on the more difficult times at Celtic including Gordon Strachan’s disappointing last season and the introduction of Tony Mowbray which saw him out the door of his boyhood club.

From there, the boys discuss the rest of Stephen’s career down south with Middlesbrough and back up the road with Motherwell where he was apart of a mighty battle to stay in the top division when a relegation play-off was on the cards against old rivals Rangers.
