Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During a glorious but controversial career, Frank McGarvey won every major trophy in Scottish soccer. Under Alex Ferguson at St. Mirren in the 1970s, he inspired a young Saints team to victory in the First Divison—an effort that attracted the attention of English giants Liverpool and Scotland manager Jock Stein. After a frustrating spell at Anfield, he headed back north to join boyhood heroes Celtic, with whom he won five medals in five seasons. However, he was shown the door by Davie Hay just days after scoring the winner for the club in the 1985 Scottish Cup final. McGarvey then returned to St. Mirren, with whom he won the Scottish Cup two years later, and he continued his success after a move into management, helping Clyde to win the Second Division trophy. But this is only half of Frank McGarvey's story. Throughout his remarkable career and beyond, McGarvey fought, and for the most part, lost a battle with gambling. It cost him his marriage, home, and self-respect, and it is only recently that he has been able to overcome his problems. In Frank: My Story, McGarvey candidly chronicles the highs and lows of his life and career, and reveals how he finally managed to overcome his gambling addiction.
