This De La Salle, son. ’ There is no laugh, just a brisk turn and a march towards a big wicker hamper from which he grabs a pair of red socks, then keeps on walking. The shiver turns to sweat as an abyss slides into view below my three-inch platform heels. Any second now he will turn and unleash a volley of insults aimed at cutting me to the size of an ant, call off the interview, and boot me out of Melwood, back to the sixth-form block and rank humiliation. He stops, does an about-turn, and unleashes a bark: ‘I’m making a pot of tea.

He turned to me smugly and asked if I had problems with that, to which I replied, ‘Well, yeah. ’ He got up so close his coffee-tinged halitosis was threatening to singe my nasal hairs. But I knew, and he knew, that he couldn’t make me do this. It was Saturday. It was voluntary. And if I chose to spend it at Anfield rather than romp around sandhills chasing an imaginary pig with that greasy prick shouting at me for not being dramatic enough, that was the final word. Logic should dictate that I had other interests but I hadn’t.

Let’s get this straight here. I should be at school, battling to stay awake through double economics. Instead I’m joshing away with Bill Shankly at Melwood, like a groom and his best man preparing to rip up the town on a stag night. Goolies on parade and everything. I’ve been in his company less than five minutes and he’s already told me a story nobody has ever heard before. Granted, in the league table of Shankly anecdotes it’s six points behind Stenhousemuir. But it’s mine and mine alone to drop casually into conversations for eternity.
