Known as ‘Razor’ Ruddock, he was often involved in a number of different skirmishes in his career. The former Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur defender had a fiery temperament and often enjoyed dishing out some hefty tackles to his opponents. He was often considered to be the linchpin in the
Liverpool defence during the early 90’s. In spite of the fact that he was not the leanest of defenders, Ruddock’s hard man image ensured no one messed with him.
