LIAM KELLY – The Old­ham Ath­letic mid­fielder chooses his favourite XI, made up from play­ers he has played with in his foot­ball ca­reer.

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE RESULTS -


Cammy Bell – Rangers Cammy is prob­a­bly the best player I’ve played with or against. I played with him for four-and-ahalf sea­sons at Kil­marnock. He’s in­jured at the mo­ment but he’s a fan­tas­tic keeper and has been go­ing away with Scot­land quite a bit.


James Fowler – Queen of the South James was club cap­tain the whole time I was at Kil­marnock. He’s manager of Queen of the South now. He had all the hall­marks of be­com­ing a great manager, though is yet to hang up his boots.


James Wil­son – Old­ham Ath­letic He’s prob­a­bly one of the most ath­letic cen­tre-halves in the league. He’s never go­ing to get done for pace at the back. He’s com­mand­ing in the air and his gen­eral ath­leti­cism gives him the up­per hand.


Joseph Mills – Old­ham Ath­letic I’d have to say that Joseph is the best left-back I’ve played with, but he will have to move into the mid­dle to squeeze into my team. He’s been fan­tas­tic all sea­son, he’s up and down the wing all the time. I’m sure he’s got a great ca­reer ahead of him.


James Forrest – Celtic He’s a fan­tas­tic player. He’s very de­ceiv­ing, be­cause you see him and he’s just like a stocky lit­tle kid. He’s got no neck on him! I re­mem­ber one night we played Hol­land Un­der-21s away from home and he tore them apart.


Dar­ren Fletcher – West Brom I played with him in the Scot­land team and he was a bril­liant in­flu­ence in the mid­dle. He achieved so much in the game at Manch­ester United. He’s had health prob­lems lately, so it’s good to see him back play­ing and hope­fully those trou­bles are be­hind him.


Craig Bryson – Derby County He’s a box-to-box mid­fielder. His en­ergy and work-rate is un­be­liev­able. He’s prob­a­bly the fittest player I’ve ever played with. Play­ing with him at Kil­marnock was great be­cause he does a lot of the leg work for you! He’s made a big con­tri­bu­tion at Derby.


Lee John­son – Re­tired I’ll go for the manager, so I can keep in his good books! We played as a sort of part­ner­ship and got good re­sults. He was a street­wise player, clever and very good at keep­ing pos­ses­sion. He was an in­tel­li­gent player and that’s why he’s gone on to do well as a manager.


Johnny Rus­sell – Derby County I played with him in the Scot­land U21s for quite a while. He’s quite a stocky player and very good at car­ry­ing the ball. He’s al­ways had a great goal record as well, he’ll al­ways pop up in the box and get a few goals. He makes a de­cent con­tri­bu­tion to the Derby team.


Jor­dan Rhodes – Black­burn Rovers Ev­ery­one knows about him, but not many know how to stop him. He’s got a fan­tas­tic goalscor­ing record in League One and the Cham­pi­onship and in the Scot­land U21s he scored about nine goals in as many games for us.


Sam Bal­dock – Brighton An­other player whose record speaks for it­self and I ex­pect him to do at Brighton what he has done for years in League One. He was the top goalscorer at Bris­tol City last sea­son. His fin­ish­ing is first class.
