Team Talk

The story is told that when Jock Wallace was manager of Rangers in the 70s the Ibrox club's search for players who kicked with the right foot led them to take on a Nigerian triallist, who was quickly and affectionately nicknamed Shug. One match day, Wallace summoned the squad for a team talk and it went something like this:
'Goalie throw oot baw tae full back. Backie pass tae midfielder. Midfielder gie baw tae winger. Winger cross tae Shug. Shug heidie baw, score goal. Goat that? Pass, cross, heidie, goal.'
Shug frowned and said, 'Really Mr Wallace, my command of English is not so sketchy that you have to patronise me in such a manner.'
Wallace replied, 'Naw, naw, it's no for your benefit, son . . . it's they other ten bawheids!'
