Former Celtic and Albania international defender Rudi Vata talks about a quite incredible career path that took him from communist Albania to Glasgow. Rudi explains what it was like growing up in a dictatorship which led to him seeking political asylum in France, after playing for the national team in Paris. We discuss Rudi's time in Scotland, playing under Liam Brady, Lou Macari and Tommy Burns, becoming the first Albanian footballer to win a major honour in western Europe, playing alongside Pierre van Hooijdonk and scoring THAT goal against Rangers.
