FOOTBALL: HOWARD AND SMITHY: Vandalism of statue a disgrace.Byline: HOWARD KENDALL/TOMMY SMITH
I HOPE I speak for every right thinking Red when I condemn the unwarranted act of vandalism on Dixie Dean's statue. We all have our sporting heroes and even as an avid Red, the achievements of Dixie are some-thing to be proud of, something that no other city can match. From Kennedy, Souness, Dalglish and Hansen to Ball, Kendall, Reid and Bracewell, the heroes flow, not to mention the respective managers. So let's be proud of them all. Nobody can hold a candle to this city.
