For here was a lifelong Red, born into a working-class family in Kirkby, who completed a meteoric rise through the ranks to the summit of continental football. An extra three stones and a regular place in the first-team. But while other youngsters may have buckled in such circumstances, the fresh-faced 17-year-old turned in a performance that belied his tender years and was deservedly applauded off at the end by both teams, the crowd and the referee!
