Marvin Andrews is an extraordinary footballer whose talent has seen him quickly progress from barefoot kickabouts on the dusty streets of his Caribbean neighbourhood to top-flight Scottish football and 99 international appearances with ‘Soca Warriors’ Trinidad and Tobago. Beginning his professional career with Trinidadian club San Juan Jabloteh in 1995, he came to Scotland in 1997, where his achievements include a Scottish Cup win with Livingston in 2003–04 and a Premier League title win with Rangers in 2004–05.

In Marvellous Marvin, Andrews reveals what it felt like to play alongside some of the greatest names in the modern game, frankly opines about playing in the notorious Rangers–Celtic Old Firm clashes in an atmosphere of religious rivalry and discusses how his faith has led him away from a wild life of women, alcohol and gambling to one of high morals and born-again Christianity. Marvellous Marvin is a football autobiography with a difference by one of the game’s true characters. Nicknamed ‘Dog’ in Trinidad due to his fierce-but-fair defending, and known as the ‘Gentle Giant’ amongst Scottish fans, this is the story of Marvin Andrews: preacher, pastor, healer . . . and top-class footballer.
