Kop Quote

Liverpool Echo reporter on Jock McNab, who was sent off against Newcastle on 14th of February 1925

McNab was a real hard nut, whose idea of getting ready for a match was to have a couple of pints of Guinness. In one match at Newcastle, which got a bit out of hand, McNab was sent off for throwing a handful of mud at another player and he was followed to the dressing room by Wadsworth a few minutes later.

While the two of them were bemoaning their luck, there was a knock on the dressing room door. 'Who is it?', asked McNab, and was told it was one of the club's directors. 'Bloody hell, has the ref started to send the directors off now?', came McNab's response.
