FOX: Do you keep in touch with any of your old City team mates?
DG: The only one I see regularly is Frank McLintock. I see Stringy when I go up to games.
Frank was the big brother I never had. If anyone kicked me, they only kicked me once because Frank looked after me.
I remember one Thursday lunchtime over a pint Frank tried to talk me into a game of golf, even though it was against club rules in the days leading up to a game.
“Matt would go mad.” I said. “Yes, but he won’t know will he?” says Frank.
He talked me round and we were striding down the long 15th at Rothley Park when we caught sight of Matt Gillies.
We both dived into the bushes on the railway embankment and were covered in scratches from the brambles.
We laid low for a while until he was out of sight. ‘Do you think he saw us?’ I asked Frank. ‘Well we could see him, so its possible.’ he said.
We sweated it out for a couple of days and nothing was said in training.
We played at Anfield on the Saturday and we were both in the team so we said to each other in the changing rooms before the game: ‘He didn’t see us, we got away with it.’
We beat Liverpool and Matt was delighted after the game, he went round every player looking them in the eye and saying: ‘Well played.’ Then he came to us two and said; ‘…And you pair were fantastic… perhaps you should play golf every Thursday?’
