Product description


Ted McMinn is one of football's cult heroes. In a rollercoaster career that took in Scotland, England and Spain, Ted became a firm favourite with the fans first at Rangers and then at Derby County.In this remarkable new autobiography, McMinn lifts the lid on his incredible life and career for the first time. He tells how being abandoned by his mother spurred him on to play for Glasgow Rangers. He recalls how he helped them win a cup final by removing his own plaster after breaking his ankle. And he reveals how Graeme Souness drove him out of Ibrox when his boozy exploits culminated in him and 'Gers hero Ally McCoist being charged with assault. The story also includes his overseas adventure with legendary manager Jock Wallace, his return to the UK when he scored on his debut for Derby and the freak injury that made him miss the World Cup.He also lifts the lid on his three failed marriages and why he tore up his own contract to flee to Australia. There's his controversial spell in management with Mark Wright that collapsed when the former England captain was sacked for racial abuse.

And there's the mystery illness that forced surgeons to amputate his leg and led to suicidal depression. But throughout his controversial career there were good times as well as bad and Ted McMinn has had more than his share of both, like the time he raised thousands for charity on a mammoth bike ride that concluded with a triumphant testimonial match watched by fans from around the world. In "The Tin Man", Ted McMinn now tells the true story of his remarkable life both on and off the pitch.
