Jabba's Comments

Much travelled midfielder whose brief spell at Leeds might have resulted in a transfer - but for the fact that Leeds were in Division Two and had no money. Best known for his long spell at Maine Road, he had made his name at Brighton in the early 1980s, but never did enough to build on the reputation and skills that had seen him make his debut for Morton while still 16 and pick up a U-21 cap for Scotland against Wales in 1978.

In October 2002 he was appointed manager of Exeter City.

Jim Gern says: I met neil in a shop and he licked my face.

Julie Philpott says: Met Neil McNab and his group of would-be golfers in the Algarve, Portugal, middle of June 2002. He told me his name, but as I am no footie fan, it didn't click. He said he was a coached young footballers but not that he had played in the big league. He was a very nice family man with a great sense of humour, very kind and thoughtful and got on well with everyone he came in to contact with. Say a big hello to Neil from Julie, Hilary, Sue, Jeanette, Michelle, Alison and Kath x

jim long says: good player for the ton.... All leeds fans should support the ton this season.....

Archie Petrie says: Played alongside Neil in the Youth team at Morton when he was 13 and just a wee laddie! He was some player then and Bobby Collins, another ex LUFC great, took him under his wing and taught him a few tricks! Neil was always going to make the big time and I'm surprised he didn't play for Scotland more often - perhaps he was 'too workmanlike' on the park rather than flashy. Boy could Scotland do with a player such as him now! I now live in Sydney and haven't seen Neil for years - 30years in fact. So if anyone comes across him tell him his old friend Archie Petrie was asking very kindly for him! I see he's been given the coaches job at Exeter today - should help him up the ladder of management success!

Kenny Osborne says: Neil, Good to read your profile,we were all discussing your time at Morton,and the rest of your career in England.

Margaret McNab says: My memories of growing up with my brother, Neil (who is 8 years older than me) are of being in airports, awaiting his arrival/Neil going out training and me trying to do keepy-up with the ball more than him which was impossible! Neil was at Spurs at the time and watching him play was very exciting!! Neil has always been very determined and never given up. A lovely family guy, who's very proud and with a wonderful sense of humour and of course a great brother...

Ged Tarpey says: Neil was my Youth Team coach at Man City and he was quality, the man has real passion and desire to win and some of his tackles in training were X rated. Top man though, best coach I ever had, I owe a lot to him

Jill McNab says: i know neil mcnab i was married to his young brother paul mcnab
