From the Heart Summary

From the Heart: My Autobiography by Sandy Clark

In "From the Heart", Sandy Clark tells the story of his headline-grabbing career in football as a striker, manager, coach and now much-respected pundit. From his early days with his hometown team Airdrie, Sandy Clark was a prolific scorer and notched more than 100 goals for the Diamonds. He caught the eye of both Sir Alex Ferguson and Celtic who tried to prise him away and was later named PFA Player of the Year before heading south to West Ham to star alongside Trevor Brooking, Billy Bonds and Tony Cottee. Sandy reveals why he then returned to Rangers and how he helped a young Ally McCoist through those difficult early days, before they went on to help the Light Blues to Skol Cup glory. He also reveals the pain and agony of the 1985-86 season when, with Hearts, he missed out on a league and Scottish Cup double. And he relives his Tynecastle memories, from his derby day glories to Wallace Mercer asking him to value all the Hibs players ahead of his controversial attempt to buy their capital rivals. Sandy speaks openly about his own managerial stint at Tynecastle, where he had to controversially sack Justin Fashanu and for the first time he talks about his heartbreak when Chris Robinson showed him the door and why he later turned down the chance to manage Hearts for a second spell. Clark tells all from his time at St Johnstone, where he led them to third spot, a cup final and back into Europe, where they took on the might of Monaco and also lifts the lid on the drugs nightmare with George O'Boyle and Kevin Thomas and how he believes it led to his eventual sacking. He went on to work under Jimmy Calderwood and Jimmy Nicholl at Dunfermline, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen and says why he believes an Aberdeen legend was behind their controversial Pittodrie departure. Controversial, honest and full of brand new anecdotes, "From the Heart" is an unmissable football story.
