Keith Gillespie is one of the most recognised football players of the early Premier League era. He started his career at Manchester United as one of the famous 'Fergie Fledglings' and was also a star in Kevin Keegan's successful Newcastle United side that were dubbed 'The Entertainers'. Gillespie is also sixth on the list of highest appearance makers for his country, Northern Ireland. He has worked under many of the game's top managers - among them Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Neil Warnock and Lawrie McMenemy. Keith Gillespie hit the headlines in the 1990s for admitting to a serious gambling problem. In his autobiography, he talks powerfully and honestly about his addiction and the toll it took on him. Gillespie has also been hit hard by failed business deals and ill-advised investments. He hit the headlines again in 2010 after he was declared bankrupt. During his time at Leicester, Gillespie was among a group of footballers who were wrongly accused of rape while on a training break in La Manga. Keith talks powerfully about his horrific ordeal, which saw him held in custody before his subsequent release without charge. He also talks frankly about explosive bust-ups with team-mates and managers during an often controversial career. Keith Gillespie: How Not To Be A Football Millionaire is one of the most honest and entertaining autobiographies you will read - about a player who lived the football life to the full. It tells a fascinating and moving human story - about the other side to the glory game. About winning and losing, fortune and fate, hope and heartache...About having the world at your feet and being left to ask yourself: 'Where did it all go wrong?'
