Met Big Jack at a conference where he was the guest speaker,we were upstairs for the evening meal. I knew the Celtic v Liverpool quarter final Was on tv downstairs so Imade an excuse to nip down to see the score Celtic had just equalised as I passed the table where Jack was sitting so told him the score which surprised him,he replied Liverpool will hammer them.went back down just as John Hartson scored it was a belter it was near the end so waited until final whistle so as I passed Jack with a big smile on my face I told him the score and who scored the final goal. He told me to fuck off laughed and then shook my hand and said Celtic were a great team and loved playing against them a true gent will never forget his banter R.I.P. BIG JACK
