Roddy Collins is one of the most colourful characters in Irish Football and he joins More than 90 Minutes Editor, Andrew Milne for a chat about his new book the Rodfather.


Not many of my guests have survived a session with Oliver Reed Celtic fan Roddy talks about his journey following Celtic, the road to Seville and gives his thoughts on Ange Postecoglou.

Roddy has had plenty of success as a player and a manager both home and abroad and he chats about his playing days, injuries, the highs and the lows before success as a manager in both Ireland and England. Bohs fans will enjoy his recollections of his time at Dalymount.

Boxing fan Andrew could not have Roddy on the pod without talking about growing up in a Boxing mad working class family. Irish Champion after Irish Champion with the name Collins was churned out at the National Stadium.

His brother Steve is the most famous of the Collins Boxing Clan and Roddy recounts tales of his brothers grit and determination that would eventually see him Middleweight and Super Middleweight Champion of the World.
