Details: Billy Bremner remains, more than a decade on from his premature death at the age of just 54, one of football's most iconic figures. His statue stands outside Leeds United's Elland Road home, serving as a daily reminder to fans, players and management staff alike of the huge role Bremner played in transforming the Yorkshire club into one of the most feared in Europe. North of the Border, Bremner remains equally revered - as underlined by him being one of the first to be inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame.
His career was not without controversy, whether it be the lifetime ban from international football or the playing style that saw Bremner once famously described in The Sunday Times as, '10 stone of barbed wire'. But, throughout his 18 years as a player that also included a stint at Hull City, the Scot was a figure that even his fiercest critics respected – a standing that continued throughout his time as a manager.
This in-depth biography provides a fresh insight into one of football’s most enduring characters through the eyes of friends, team-mates and colleagues plus dozens of the players he managed for more than a decade when in charge of Leeds United and Doncaster Rovers.
