For me it has to be that vile little Hun ******* Alex McDonald. What an odious little bigot. Every Hibs v Hun game he targeted wee Mickey and of course mickey took the bait.

That Hun weasels arrogance when he and big Tony H paraded the cup pre game was vomit inducing. Acknowledging the massed hordes and intimating to them that the cup was theirs before a ball is kicked.

St Albert of Dens gave him a proper kick in the Goolies ... God bless St Albert and Sir David.

McDonald the ultimate cheat and loser

I don't like The Rangers

Best one for me was when Doddy put Mickey up in the air with a typical two footed cynical tackle and Mickey got up and walked over a prostrate MacDonald Mickey didnae even wait on the card and just ran straight up the tunnel as I think he had already been booked leaving MacDonald to lift up his light blue jersey to examine the stud marks

Brilliant!

Ah yes i remember it well Billy. Did Mickey not get a record 12 week suspension for that incident ?...I laughed at the time given the record "ban" was Willie Waddell , Hun Bassa' being Sine Die for nutting an opponent. So in reality a Hun holds the record ban.

That's the swine, seem to recall it is as a very nasty achieves injury. Studs right down the back of the ankle. Not sure Wright played for Hibs much after that, went to Killie? However, we signed another Wright with the cash and that worked out nae bad.

Another one I disliked intensely, Mark "elbows" Hateley. Effective, but horrible. Typified the Hunt of that era.

Ricksen is very much deserving of a mention, in spite of his current illness - it's partly complimentary - he was an odious ******* on the field, always resorting to horrible tackles, winding up opposition players and having them react. But he was a damned good footballer too.

Brown fits into that same category for me. He's teflon, he winds players up something awful, he niggles opponents with borderline behaviour/physicality...but he's bloody good at what he does.

I don't consider Skacel etc in this category. I didn't love to hate him - I just did. He wasn't particularly good, he was just a vile reprobate.

I remember one derby at ER, due to a flukey bounce of the ball it was a 50-50 between Busby (who was the yam's 'Hard man' at the time) and our Des Bremner - Bremner was never what you'd call 'well-built' (skinny imo !) but the 2 of them raced towards the ball and each other - everyone in the ground could see it coming and the combined noise of the fans was like a drum-roll leading up to the moment of impact ! And boy did they impact (iirc, it looked very much like both players had forgotten all about the ball !) - it was like 2 locomotives crashing into each other !. Straight after the collision, Des Bremener just got up, casually wiped his sleeves and trotted away - the 'Hard man' needed treatment (he might even have got carrried off - my memory's not what it was !) !

Do you honestly think Larsson took greater pleasure from scoring against us than anyone else? He stuck his tongue out frequently as part of his goal celebration, but can't recall him ever trying to wind the Hibs fans up. Think your memory is playing tricks on you.

Where I'll partially agree is regarding the dive - he knew how to win a penalty, and went down too easily in the box on more than one occasion, I'd suggest. Other than that, he was a fantastic player. Can't imagine why anyone (apart from the Huns, I suppose) would hate him.

Yes I was there to right behind the incident. Latapy on the piss and Sauzee's dead leg from Ibrox the previous week. All very painful.

You must be the two year old if you think sticking your tongue out at the opposition fans is not an insult. For adults to do it to other adults is widely regarded as an insult in almost all cultures.

Larsson stuck his tongue out as his celebration, Infront of away fans or home fans, watch a YouTube of him and you will see him running the length of the Celtic stand doing it .

Utter nonsense. He had a contempt for all the other teams fans. His superiority he expressed as an arrogance. There have been great players in our league who were able to show humility. Larson was not one of them. He could easily celebrated away from the opposition fans. I am sure he was not sticking his tongue out at the Celtic fans. You are utterly naive not to believe his actions were a deliberate slur on other fans.

it always just seemed more of a natural “tick” to me. Never got any sense of malice ..he always seemed too busy scoring goals to worry about that sort of stuff

Did he not return your Xmas card one year ? [emoji2][emoji6]

Im guessing you think Alan Shearer used to do a Nazi salute to the opposition fans every time he scored?

We are not saying they are all alike. There different things about players you may not like. Busby and Souness hackers. Henderson a diver.

Larson stopped his tongue celebration after receiving repeated complaints from parents that their children were copying him winding up other children and getting into trouble. Larson in his usual arrogant way ignored the parents for some time.

Compare his celebrations to Sauzee. In the Millennium derby he scored at the Hearts end but ran the length of the pitch to celebrate with the Hibs. Hibs class.

By all accounts a classy player and person. All accounts except yours it seems.

Entitled to your opinion, but do you not think his celebration annoyed you because you seen it that much... as he scored SO many goals. There's been plenty of players acting like fuds in short and long spells for both sides of the ugly sisters. Larsson was annoying as he was so good for a team we hate.

Indeed he did Lucy, i was heid barman at Jim Leightons testimomonial "do" at the Marriott, Glasgow Road. Robbo presented himself at the bar at which point i said "you're no gettin ****ing served" he countered "you'll be a hibby then?" i mellowed when he ordered a Bailleys and told me to take a drink for myself.

Odd thing was that night that while the bulk of ex pro's and the likes mixed, Robbo sat at the bar alone chatting to me.

Skacel, and not just because he was admittedly a good player, he was just a total ***** as a person. I used to work in David Lloyd's as a lifeguard and the guy would come in like he owned the place, refusing to get out of peoples way insisting them move to the side first, also refusing to get out the jacuzzi when the bubbles were off and when as approached and asked he would just look the other way and completely ignore you. I wanted to drown the b*tch.

When Griffiths scored the free kick and Caldwell the last minute winner at Tyne in 2013 he was at Dundee United.

He came in on the Monday for a swim and I couldn't believe it, he had his Hearts shorts on walking in from the changing room. I was up the far side I thought, no way am i missing this opportunity!

Phone out, youtube, right to Griffiths free kick with the commentator going daft, I played it right at the moment I crossed paths with him and shouted across to the other lifeguard on duty 'what a free kick that was against the Jambos (couldnt use any sweary words for obvious reasons) then Caldwell with the winner (turn back in Rudis direction and increased the decimals) was MAGIC!

He turned that big nose to the side to look at me but I didn't even give him the satisfaction and just continued walking off.

It's the small things in life....😊

You just know how many times we've had the upper hand in recent years, level playing field these days an all, couple years finishing above them, Horgan in the last derby at the dump etc that even though he's no longer with them he'll no doubt still be close with them and it'll all get under his skin! 👌

Horrible, arrogant little scrote with very little ability to actually back it up.

I'll never forget the 4-0 game v Rangers at ER a few years back when Scotty Allan absolutely rang rings around him and literally left him on his arse. You could just see the anger and frustration building and building up in Black that day as he couldn't even close to Allan. He was taken off before he was sent off that day because he was building up to a horrific tackle on someone as he had no clue what else to do. He booted the dugout when he came off IIRC. We made an absolute mug of him that day and showed him up to be the horrible wee imposter he really is.
