What a disgrace of a professional - and to think that he actually played for Liverpool
Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has revealed that he was once told to make sure Neil Ruddock had a ‘weight clause’ in his contract.
Jordan recalls the incident during an interview in The Guardian newspaper.
He said: "Fatty Arbuckle - Neil Ruddock - wanted to sign.
"Harry Redknapp told me to make sure I had a weight clause in his contract, 98 kilos, or whatever. And if he’s over that then fine him 10 per cent of his wages.
“That’s the only way to ensure you get a fit and focused Ruddock.”
