Craig Moore RYDC Twitter Q&A

Former Rangers captain Craig Moore featured in the Rangers Legends game at Ibrox last season and in the build-up he took part in an exclusive Q&A session on the Rangers Youth Development Company Twitter account (@rfc_rydc).

Check out the highlights of his session….

Q – Sam Sneddon – What is the feeling really like when you pull on the Rangers shirt and stand in front of the fans of the famous Glasgow Rangers?

A- I learned very quickly the expectations of this club – not just what it meant to fans but players. I fell in love very quickly with this club, it was a great honour to pull on the jersey for as many years as I did

Q – Mark Harvey – who was the best player you played with in your time at Ibrox?

A – For me I played in 3 different teams – it is hard to pick just one. I always go back to Gazza and Brian Laudrup – I wasn’t a regular then but I could appreciate their talent. There were moments they were able to change games for us

Q – Jude Mcilreavy – What’s been your favourite moment in a Rangers jersey?

A – My debut is always one against Dundee Utd away – and the season we won the Treble in 2002/03. It was the season I felt I contributed most in

Q – Lee Armstrong – Would love to see big skippy on the coaching staff, great defender for us – would you like to come back on some capacity?

A – You never say never – but I am not interested in coaching. At this moment in time I’m looking to explore new opportunities and it should be a lot clearer after the World Cup

Q – Gaz Sneddon – Do you remember at all, a game where after going up for a header, you landed completely upside down ON your neck? (No footage & don’t remember the opponents)

A – Yes, I went off – a lot of people thought I had broken my neck. Luckily I have a long neck! 

Q –Robert Clark – just how under-rated was Alec Cleland in that 9IAR team?

A – Alec was unbelievable – so consistent and never ever did he let anyone down. He controlled that flank for us

Q – Alan Fraser – What was the best time of your career?

A – My first season as a central defender under Dick Advocaat – I felt I was at my best then. I lost the player of the year award by one vote to Mark Viduka and I was injured so he played 3 months more than I did

Q – AJ – Craig you scored the first goal at my first Rangers game against Aberdeen in 2000. You burst your lip in the process thanks for the wonderful memory

A – I certainly remember the goal and it certainly wasn’t flashy but it was my first goal so a great feeling
