Bit ironic given the supposed bad blood between Craig and Gary.

Didn't think it was appropriate to show the obvious reasons he seems to be alluding to

Thought the same, but maybe he's being sarcastic as this looks to be towards the end of 1986 if the penultimate question is anything to go by

He did admit that on here once. Said that he didn’t really support any Scottish team, but if he had to choose one, it would have been Rangers because that’s who his big brother Chris supported and played for at the time.

My thoughts too! I'm born in '87 and so many people made out he grew up a hibby... Never heard rangers mentioned. Yet there it is from the man himself at age of 20/21.dont think he'd be trying to hide anything at that age!

Spent his weekends playing football, so didn’t really avidly support a Scottish club, is what he said on here. He did concede however, that he probably would have supported Rangers had he not spent all his time playing, because he would have supported his big brother, Chris. The Kenny Dalgleish bit also backs up his statement that he liked Liverpool more than any Scottish clubs at that time.

 

Still absolutely no mention of him being a Hibs fan, despite the usual fantasies from their supporters. ?

Now we know why the Rangers fans gave him a big cheer when he lifted the cup in 98

 

He's one of their own !

Brooke Shields seems to have been popular. Wonder if team bonding was a group cinema visit to see the Blue Lagoon.

Thought it was strange that the number 5 shirt at Hearts was never worn by a central defender during Levein's playing time at the club. Neil Berry, Dave McCreery and Gary MacKay seemed to wear it.

 

Peter Haring has it now

I would like to know why he was superstitious about wearing the number 5. Think he only wore 4 and 6 for Hearts and when we signed Big Slim laughed that he could have the No.5 shirt

Can remember these.  Always star struck when I was a kid and a Hearts player appeared in Shoot or Match. 

 

Robbo’s one is where I always reference him saying he likes the Huns when the Hibs supporter debate appears.

I can confirm this I played football with him at school and the only reason he supported Rangers was because his brother Chris played for them at the time

Roddy MacDonald used to wear 5, but as CL took over he and Jardine wore 4&6.

Find it a bit strange as the 5 shirt was worn by the great Beckenbauer. Levein has his superstition about it though and I just wonder how it came about.

Pretty sure Graeme Hogg wore number 5. Unlucky for him too.

A good article. He undoubtedly has his critics but you cannot deny that he is a Jambo through-and-through and gives everything to make the club successful. I like how genuinely challenging the OF and winning the league is something he is working towards. It will just take the fans being as patient as him, continuing to build the club and then, hopefully, reaping the rewards.

He's cream pied the Hibs thing a million times. He had a soft spot for Rangers because his brother played for them and he also liked Liverpool.
