Safe Hands Not Legs
One of the most successful goal keepers, of the late eighties and early nineties; Bruce is known as much for his skill at stopping the ball, as he is for his outgoing personality.
Most famously Bruce did his wobbly leg dance, during a penalty shoot out to distract players; but he also had many successes on the field, including winning the League and League Cup in 1990 with Liverpool (he also won five other league titles and three FA Cups); having signed for the club back in March 1981.
