Kirk Broadfoot was signed on a pre-contract from St Mirren when Walter Smith came back to Rangers in 2007. He's a centre back and can also claim to score on his international debut as he put Scotland ahead against Iceland. He played and captained St. Mirren at centre half but Walter has since moved him to right back, and he played the entire second half of the 2007/08 season there.


Broadfoot had a slow start at Ibrox in his early career. He played a few games within the first month but wasn't seen until January when he started the Scottish Cup against Hibernian. It was unfair to expect him to be bombing up and down the wing like Alan Hutton but he came in, did his job and kept Rangers hard to score against. Surely he couldn't have expected to come in and earn a League Cup medal, a Scottish Cup medal and play in our first European final for 36 years?

Egg Injury

The White Cafu was inspecting two eggs he had poached in the microwave when one of them blew up, squirting scalding water onto his face. He had to go to hospital to get pieces of egg sucked out his eye and doctors told him it was actually pretty serious and he nearly lost sight had the hot water gone a few inches elsewhere. He's fine though and no doubt he was the butt of the jokes in training.
