Barry Ferguson is Scotland's most gifted footballer, the heartbeat of Rangers and the captain of his country.
He has grown up in the spotlight, but the fans know only his public face.
Now, a star who is notoriously protective of his privacy opens his heart and delivers a no-holds-barred account of his controversial career."Blue" features Ferguson's take on all aspects of his eventful journey so far, including the axing of Lorenzo Amoruso as Gers' skipper and Ferguson's appointment at the age of only 22; the horrifying night of violence when he was bottled in the face after being sent off in a 6-2 Old Firm defeat; his venture into the Premiership after signing for Blackburn Rovers in 2003; the bust-up that followed with Rangers chairman David Murray; the despair and agony of the broken kneecap he feared had ended his career; the elation he felt on his eventual return to his boyhood heroes; and his turbulent relationship with Paul Le Guen, who was replaced as Rangers manager after controversially stripping Ferguson of the captaincy.
Ferguson also reveals the details of his secret wedding to Margaret, his Catholic bride, and his pride when his career was recognised by the Queen. Candid and frank, the man behind the headlines is revealed in "Blue: The Life and Times of Barry Ferguson".
