The first post war player to play for both Celtic and Rangers has offered some timely advice to Celtic new boy Kenny Miller.
It is almost 30 years since Alfie Conn joined Celtic from Spurs having previously been at Rangers for 9 years.
And he believes that Kenny Miller’s relatively short stay at Ibrox should act in his favour, saying
'I don't think he played that many games for Rangers so I don't think it will be as bad for him.”
'He will still have problems but he has made his decision and will have to get on with it.’
But he goes on to warn Miller that living locally to the club may not be his best move.
“I would advise him not to get involved in anything - stay out of Glasgow. Maybe he should stay in Edinburgh.”
'He will have to watch where he drinks and who he associates with. He will learn a lot about who people are.”
'He will discover who his friends are and how others think. There are bigger things than the Old Firm but try telling some folk that.”
He also points out that as far as The Old Firm are concerned, crossing the divide is something that is not likely to ever be forgotten.
'A few years ago I worked in a pub in Glasgow which wasn't a Rangers bar and this boy came in, he was maybe 21.”
'He asked for a pint then said, 'I know your face, are you Alfie Conn?' I said yes and he told me to stick my pint and walked out.'
'He was too young to have seen me play but the feelings are still there.'
