His remarks also triggered ‘Gers legend Ally McCoist, who quipped that O’Hara should be “breathalysed” over making a claim “as stupid as that” [talkSPORT via Glasgow Times].
When O’Hara snapped back at McCoist over his apparent claims that the ‘Gers are a bigger club than Tottenham and Leeds and on a par with Manchester City, that prompted ex-Ibrox defender Colin Hendry to enter the fray, taking to Twitter (via @BraveheartCH) that O’Hara is “as bad a pundit as he was a footballer”.
@Ally_McCoist_…..Coisty sort this trick out … he’s as bad a pundit as he was a footballer .

O’Hara, who is now the manager of Billericay Town, made 93 Premier League appearances in a nomadic club career which saw him line out for nine clubs but become embroiled in moments of controversy along with suffering long-term injuries. Still only 33, he also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother back in 2017.
These ‘Gers fans on Twitter loved Hendry’s dig at the ex-Spurs midfielder:
