'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McLeish Sings The Praises Of Ferguson

Alex McLeish sang the praises of Barry Ferguson ahead of the Carling Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

A massive impact is how he describes what effect the ex-Scottish international has had on the team and he has built this reputation up from being rock bottom when he was cast out of the Scotland squad in disgrace.

McLeish stepped in to the bring the player to the Midlands and he has gone from strength to strength.

McLeish said: 'He has been superb for us and his experience will be important. It's amazing he's played so many games and he's hardly ever injured. His playing record is remarkable over the years. He's got amazing toughness.'

He added: 'That last season with Rangers, the relationship between Barry and the fans was maybe diminishing a wee bit.

'It was probably right for Barry to leave because you don't want to leave on bad terms.

'The fans thought Barry was on the wane or he was finished but he's proved since he's come to England that he's got plenty of fire, ability and still has the legs.'
