S9E47 Kevin Harper Interview

Posted on by K Kujawa

The two John’s are joined by ex Hibs, Derby, Portsmouth, Stoke and Dunfermline player Kevin Harper.

Kevin is the current manager of Albion Rovers so we start off by talking about reconstruction talks and what his views are on this.

He goes on to talk about signing for Hibs, the highs and lows of scoring winners in Edinburgh derbies and relegation in his last full season.

We talk about racism in football and how things haven’t really improved since then 1990s which is when Kevin started his career. He believes more needs to be done to get BAME involved particularly in management.

Kevin moved on to Derby who were in the English Premier League and had a successful first season before moving on to Portsmouth a couple seasons later. This led to playing with some great players and characters such as Prosinecki, Crouch and Merson. This leads on to his best season in football where they got promoted to the top flight in England.

Unfortunately things didn’t work out as well then with a couple of loan spells and eventually moving on to Stoke where after a successful start, injuries took their toll. He then returned north with Dunfermline.

We finish off with the usual fun stuff which includes a cracking best eleven of players he has played with.
