On the latest episode of the BBC Sportsound podcast, Craig Levein, Tom English, and Darryl Broadfoot discussed the latest goings-on in Scottish football, following the start of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season last weekend.
One topic of discussion on the recent podcast was former Rangers man Kevin Muscat. Current Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock appeared as a guest on the podcast, and he had some choice words to say about the Australian. The 46-year-old made 29 appearances for Rangers in all competitions between 2002/03, before joining Millwall on a free transfer.
Here’s what Warnock had to say about the 46-year-old on the podcast:
“I’ve been in the game, I think this is my 40th year, he was the nastiest player I’ve ever come across. He would snap your legs off without even thinking. But he did it ever so cleverly. Wow, the referees, who really have never played the game, so they don’t know what they’re looking at. He got away with murder – he wouldn’t get away with VAR, but he knew what to do, did Kevin.”
Are you surprised by Warnock's comments on Muscat?
The defender picked up seven yellow cards for Rangers in his one season at Ibrox, which perhaps backs up Warnock’s claim. Muscat is now retired, having spent some of his career in England with Millwall (per Transfermarkt), which, based on Warnock’s comments is not that surprising, especially when you consider that the Lions have been described as England’s ‘most feared‘ club.
