Barry Ferguson is Scotland's most gifted footballer. He is notoriously protective of his privacy, but now, for the first time, the Rangers and Scotland star opens his heart about his controversial career for club and country. The kid who was once left in tears in his bedroom after being booted out of a Scotland trial for being too small grew up to become a Rangers diehard, leading out the club he loves. Blue reveals Ferguson's take on all aspects of his eventful journey so far, including the axing of Lorenzo Amoruso as Gers skipper in favour of the 22-year-old Ferguson; the night of violence with Celtic fans after he was sent off in a 6 2 Old Firm defeat; his venture into the Premiership after signing for Blackburn Rovers in 2003 and the bitter feud that followed with Rangers chairman David Murray; the despair and eventual elation of his o4.5 million return to Rangers in 2005. Ferguson also reveals details of the personal grief that almost blew his world apart and of his secret wedding to Margaret, his Catholic bride. For the first time, the man behind the headlines is revealed in Blue- The Barry Ferguson Story.
