Met Doddie at JJB Ayr on Friday was an absolute gentleman. Signed my Barca 72 DVD sleeve and gave me 2 signed team prints. When I asked if he had been quite busy "Aye big man fucking mobbed" chatted for 10 minutes. True ambassador for the club

THE most underated player to ever pull on the light blue.

He cost 50 grand from St Johnstone and was one of the best midfielders

we have ever had.

I remember him saying that Jock wallace made him the player he became

'Big Jock was always telling me see when you make great pass wee man

stop standing back and admiring it get your arse up the pitch and get the 2nd ball.

My hero when I was a kid.

I imagined anyone who pulled on the blue jersey would be like him in terms of grit, determination & commitment to the cause.

Many disappointments along the way - but Doddie never let me down!

I cant understand your comments pal.

After his comments last weekend about the EBTs, I think Billy has really let us down badly.

He thinks your talking bout Billy Dodds :lol:

Well who the fuck are u talking about?

Billy big ears opened his mouth last week and more or less backed up the two contracts arguement against us.

Wee four foot five jug eared bisum that he is.

And sorry mate, I don't know any comments Alex MacDonald made last week about EBT's - I base my summation of my memories of him as a player (lucky enough to see him in the flesh a few times, rest on TV highlights or radio commentary) and he was an all action player who always seemed to give his all, with numerous important goals to his name as well.

In those terms, I don't recall many let downs af all - if some journo has 'thrown him a bone' & he's answered inappropriately, well that's unfortunate, but as it didn't 't affect him directly, I guess words may have been put in his mouth, if, given name on your post, we're actually talking about the name man?

Haha!

Wish I'd got your post sooner - would've saved me an effin long post in defence of my man!

Anyway, happy to stick up for wee Doddie any day of the week.

See him bobbing around Ibrox on matchdays & still gives me goosebumps!

My real name's Alex, so not a great leap to adopt his persona in boyhood games, as you do.

Goals v tarriers, general giving 100% every time you saw him, attitude overcoming any technical deficiencies - he wasn't hard to take to in my eyes.

In any sporting event I took part in, I always tried to be like that & had some success because of it.
