Marc Corby and Norman Riley listen to former United winger Keith Gillespie as he takes us through the early part of his career as a professional. Keith was a vital cog in the Newcastle United team managed by Kevin Keegan that came within touching distance of the title in 1996.

His incredible performance in the 3-2 Champions League victory over Barcelona in 1997 is one that ensures his permanent place in United folklore. In part one of this four part series Keith discusses the period covering his arrival at Man Utd in 1991 to signing for Newcastle United in 1995.

Keith talks about how it felt to play for his boyhood team, work with Fergie and share a dressing room with Roy Keane. His Northern Ireland debut is discussed in depth.
