Former Derby County and Rangers winger Ted McMinn will be at the iPro Stadium this weekend when his two old clubs go head-to-head.
As a special guest of the club, McMinn will attend pre-season friendly between the two sides on Saturday 2nd August 2014 (1pm kick-off).
He will appear on the pitch prior to the game getting underway and is assured a fantastic reception from both sets of fans.
Now 51, McMinn was a huge fans’ favourite whilst on the books at the Baseball Ground between 1988 and 1993 and made over 150 appearances for the club, while he also enjoyed a spell working in Derby’s kit department after hanging up his boots.
His playing career began north of the border with Queen of the South in 1982 before he moved to Rangers in 1984.
He made over 60 appearances for the Ibrox club and helped them to the league title in 1986/87, making himself a popular figure with their fans in the process.
After Rangers he went on to play for Sevilla in Spain, then Derby, Birmingham City, Burnley, Australian side ECU Joondalup and then, finally, Slough Town.
Known as ‘The Tin Man’, his benefit match in Derby back in May 2006 pulled in 33,475 people as Derby and Rangers went head-to-head.
In the early 2000s his life took a dramatic change as a serious infection picked up while on holiday led initially to his right foot being amputated, then more of his leg was removed beneath the knee to allow him to have a prosthetic limb fitted.
