By the summer of 1994, at the age of 23, Duncan Ferguson appeared to have reached something of a crossroads in his career.

Heralded as one of Scotland’s brightest young prospects, Ferguson drove his manager at Dundee United, Jim McLean, to distraction with his apparent lack of dedication.

In a declining United side, he scored 28 goals in 77 games, prompting Rangers to sign him for a British record fee of £4m in 1993 at the age of just 21.

Royle later admitted that he considered replacing him during the interval.

He’s the player who made watching Everton in the 90s worthwhile.

In a worrying precedent, the case was referred by the Strathclyde Police to the courts and he was charged with assault, receiving a three-month prison sentence pending an appeal.
