Gary Harkins

Recommended Posts

Similarly to Racchi. Gary Harkins has retired from football! 

What a true talent he was, shame his head wasnt more in it. The talent with the ball at his feet was fantastic!

One of the most frustrating players I’ve seen at Killie. Unplayable on his day, but we didn’t see it nearly often enough. His performance against Motherwell the week after we won the league cup sticks out in my mind as one of his best. Think he just about set a new world record for nutmegs that day. Just unfortunate that he came across as a bit of an idiot.

Harkins is a bellend of a guy, and left under a cloud, and is regarded as a lazy player.  But in the cup final in 2012 he ran himself into the ground for the team.

But as with other comments, it's a pity he didnt do it more often, all the talent, and all the attitude without the discipline.

I have no recollection of him being particularly good in the LC final. His most significant contribution that day was being hooked for DVT.

 

I do recall him being brilliant for the first half of the 3-3 game with Celtic earlier in that season. We were 3-0 at half time and he was genuinely brilliant first half. 
Sadly like most games, he was blowing out of his arse by the hour mark.

Ran his guts put for the team, his skill wasnt the memorable bit that day, his selfishness and work rate were, as it wasnt his usual game at all.

Fat c**t

Thought we were signing him when I saw the thread! He carried a large ego, hence the roundness.

Good player who did us a turn.

 

lets not go down the route of cup winners being bellends. There’s a few in both the 1997 + 2012 teams!

In terms of ability he's only bettered by the real top class guys that have been here. Superb ability marred a bit by the fact he probably likes lager and burgers as much as he likes football.

If he had the work ethic to match his talent he would have been incredible.

Looked and acted like he belonged in the Juniors but he could play when the mood took him.

Lazy player who could have done so much more if his attitude was there. When he wanted to play he was the best player on the park. Unfortunately that only happened 3/4 times a season, like when he played against us after he went to Dundee.

He was different class at times. I remember the game we beat Rangers 1-0 at RP and he left at least 1 defender (maybe 2) on their arse in the box last min and forced a good save from Mcgregor. Also his goal v Ross County was superb.

I seem to remember a pre season goal that he bent one into the top corner. Sure it was his very first game for the club
