London, Mar.1 (ANI): Chef Gordon Ramsay has always relished boasting about his glory days as a budding soccer star with Glasgow Rangers, but a News of the World report reveals that he never signed up for the team and never played first team games for them, despite saying so on radio, in his autobiography and in a series of interviews. In fact, he was such a liar, fellow cooks nicknamed him Billy Bull***t. He even secretly confessed to top chef Marco Pierre White that his Rangers career was boloney, adding: But it just came out of my mouth and it was a good story at the time. Today, according to The Sun, that story is booted into touch for good.
Ramsay, 42, only got away with it, because no other newspaper managed to follow his trail of lies and piece together the truth. Respected Rangers historian Robert McElroy was quoted as saying: He (Ramsay) was never a signed player for us and certainly didnt play any first team games and wasnt offered any sort of contractits all complete and utter nonsense.
Legendary Rangers coach Archie Knox, who the chef blames for dumping him from the club, said: He must be a very confused individual. I was the manager of Dundee at the time. (ANI)
