009 Cammy Bell on Queen’s Park’s project, Coisty’s Rangers reign & rejecting paycuts, Mixu’s football education & working for Manchester City

May 27, 2020

IN February Cammy Bell linked up with manager Ray McKinnon for a third time after he joined Queen's Park.

The Spiders had voted to end their 152 years as an amateur club and McKinnon made a move for Bell as they prepared to go full-time this summer.

Cammy joins us for a revealing feature-length Episode 9 and lifts the lid on why he was persuaded to drop down to League Two.

He tells us why he thinks his manager at Rangers Ally McCoist would have been more appreciated if he'd been a boss in a different era. He recalls the day when the squad were asked to take a paycut and why they all chose not to - and remembers away days to lower division clubs when all the Rangers players couldn't fit in the changing rooms.

Cammy looks back at his time coming through the ranks at Kilmarnock, revisits the time Mixu Paatelainen revolutionised the club's and his style of play and reflects on how lifting the League Cup meant so little after a teammate's dad passed away in the Hampden stands.

Plus we hear about his plans for the future and the recruitment work he's already doing for Manchester City.
