Si Ferry Meets…Frank McAvennie Episode 2 – Celtic Centenary, The Fight at Ibrox, World Cup ’86


Part 2 of our chat with Frank kicks off with the discussion on his pivotal role in one of Celtic’s most iconic season’s in their history, the Centenary Year.

Frank reflects on the key moments of that season including a fight at Ibrox which saw him and 3 Rangers players ending up in court as a result of the incident, as well as the cup final itself where it was his late brace which saw the club secure the double in its 100th Anniversary.

He tells Si about how Graeme Souness tried to buy him for Rangers at the time the club signed ex-Celtic player Mo Johnston and explains the reasons why he couldn’t do it.

He also looks back on his disappointing 2nd spells at both clubs as well as talking through his experiences of going to a World Cup with Scotland back in Mexico 1986.
