Graham Roberts

Graham joined his local club, Southampton, as an associate schoolboy in October 1973, but failed to make the grade and was released, joining Portsmouth in March 1977, before being signed by Tottenham Hotspur in May 1980.

He was a member of the successful Tottenham Hotspur side of the early 1980s, winning two FA Cups and a UEFA Cup in 1984, scoring in the second leg of the final against Anderlecht, and then scoring his penalty as Spurs won the final on a shootout.

He moved to Rangers in 1986 for £450,000 and won the Scottish Premier League in his first full season and the Scottish League Cup a year later.

He joined Chelsea in August 1988 for £475,000 and helped the side emphatically win the Second Division championship in 1988–89. He later moved to West Bromwich Albion, where he played out the remainder of his professional career, and won a total of six caps for England.

In June 2005, Graham was appointed manager of Clyde. He only had 3 players under contract, and held open trials in an attempt to get new players. He gave the supporters their greatest day in years, when his Clyde side defeated Celtic in the Scottish Cup in January 2006. Earlier in the season, Clyde took Rangers to extra time at Ibrox Stadium in the Scottish League Cup.

He has recently coached both the Pakistan and Nepal International football teams.
