I remember Ivan going on on the right wing in one of his first games for Hibs in a semi at Hampden, possibly against Dundee United.
The O'Connor quote rings true, as it looked to me like our players would do anything other than give the ball to Ivan (especially Gary Caldwell).
I definitely got the feeling that the players didn't rate him, and you could see him getting frustrated.
Were there not rumours soon after he signed (pre Ibrox hat-trick obviously) that he was going to jack it in and go back to Northern Ireland?
It's the only time I can recall something like this happening in a professional game - obviously I was on the receiving end of it once or twice as an amateur player (although to be fair I actually was pish).
Did you ever just flip and go and tackle the boy that wasn’t passing to you? Lol. Gives me an idea...
