Keith Gillespie in his Manchester United hey day
Keith Gillespie has insisted he will be fully committed to Longford Town having made a surprise move to the (Irish) midlanders.
In his final game for Manchester United in 1995; he lined up alongside Eric Cantona, David Bekham, Peter Schmeichel and Paul Scholes but, tomorrow night, is expected to make his debut against Athlone Town at Flancare Park after putting pen to paper with the League of Ireland First Division club for the remainder of the season.
Gillespie earned 85 Norn Iron caps
Gillespie has been declared bankrupt in recent years after alcohol problems but, speaking yesterday at his official Longford unveiling, the 36-year-old said that he was still motivated and promised to give his all for the cause.
Looking fit and well, the man capped 85 times by Northern Ireland has said he was looking forward to playing competitive football; something which he has not done since leaving Darlington in December.
KEITH GILLESPIE: Happy to sign for Longford Town
"I think, as a sportsman, you go out with the intention of giving 100pc all of the time - irrespective of what level you play at - and I'll certainly be giving it my all here."
Longford manager Tony Cousins revealed that Phil Munnelly, one of the club's sponsors, was the man who started the ball rolling in bringing Gillespie to Longford.
