Review

Book of the week in the Independent.

'An insightful portrayal of life at Old Trafford…Crerand deserves enormous credit for being so candid throughout much of his book.' 442 Magazine

From the Inside Flap

Paddy Crerand was one of post-war football's most fiery characters, a combatant midfielder famed for his tough tackling in the colours of Celtic and Manchester United and Scotland from 1957 to 1972.

As a Celtic player in his teens, Crerand had to play in the shadow of a dominant Rangers team. At Manchester United, however, he enjoyed great success in Sir Matt Busby's post-Munich side, winning two league titles, the FA cup and the European Cup, and playing alongside the likes of George Best, Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Nobby Stiles.

Crerand was born into an Irish Catholic family amid the squalor and crime-infested streets of Glasgow's 1940s Gorbals. He was determined to escape from this harsh environment - a period of family tragedy, religious bigotry and unforgiving twelve-hour shifts at the Clyde shipyard - to fulfil a dream. It was Celtic who gave him his chance.

In his own punchy style, Crerand reveals the full truth about the formidable Jock Sein, his controversial friendship with the hard-drinking Protestant Rangers star 'Slim' Jim Baxter and the legendary Bill Shankly, what it was like to be Best's minder and Busby's confidant at Old Trafford, and his passionate involvement in Irish nationalist politics.

Never Turn the Other Cheek is an extraordinary story of real football and real characters. It is told from the perspective of someone whose informed opinion on Celtic, Manchester United and football in general is as relevant today as it was forty years ago.
