One of the first high profiles black footballers who made his name at Watford before moving to Liverpool in 1987. His international career with England started at the age of 19 and he went on to win 79 caps before retiring and becoming a TV pundit.
A football legend at Southampton, he retired at the end of the 2002 season, but Saints fans will never forget how, almost single-handedly at times, he kept Saints in the Premiership, he is now a pundit on Sky TV.
