Video: Alan Stubbs Says Celtic Cost Him England Caps…But He Has No Regrets

Alan Stubbs has admitted that playing for Celtic probably cost him the chance to play for England – but he wouldn’t change his time with the Hoops for the entire world.

The now retired centre-back became a cult hero to the Celtic support during the 1990s after spending five years at the club and playing a crucial role in the club stopping arch-rivals Rangers winning ten consecutive league titles in a row.

He eventually left Celtic Park to return to boyhood side Everton in 2001 but the closest he ever came to be recognised at international level was picking up a solitary England ‘B’ cap back in 1994.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Open Goal Sport and Simon Ferry, Stubbs seemed slightly wistful about not pulling on the famous white jersey – but Celtic supporters will love how he consoles himself:

Playing for England is supposed to be the pinnacle for an English footballer, but not Stubbs – turning out for the Hoops changed all of that.
