Charlie Adam has admitted to cheering against Glasgow Rangers when they played Dundee in the 2003 Scottish Cup final – even though he was employed by the Gers at the time.
Adam started his career with the Ibrox outfit, coming through the youth system there, but he is actually a Dundee fan. He was not involved in that 2003 showpiece, and as such, he watched the game amongst his fellow supporters at Hampden Park.
Speaking about the game, he said:
“I remember being employed by Rangers when Amoruso scored in the final and I was in the Dee end hoping my team would win.
“Unfortunately we didn’t but that’s how it goes. So I am just looking forward to this opportunity being at Dundee now.”
This is a rather a shock admission from Adam, who the Gers sold for just £500,000 to Blackpool in 2009. Whilst he may have only been a teenager at the time, without a senior appearance to his name, he was still on the books of the 54-time Scottish champions – this is probably not what he should have been doing at the time.
Do you wish Charlie Adam had stayed at the club for longer?
