Bred A Blue: Evertonian Fox On Playing For Scotland, Premier League Career And Recent Retirement

The latest guest on the Bred A Blue podcast is the only player to come through the ranks at Everton and win a full Scottish international cap!

Danny Fox has recently hung up his boots after a 500-game career that took him to Celtic, Burnley, Southampton and East Bengal, amongst other locations.

In Bred A Blue, he reveals how he became a part of the Tartan Army and reflects on the unique experience of playing in an Old Firm game.

“It’s like an out of body experience,” he says.


Fox joined Everton from Liverpool as a young boy and as a lifelong Evertonian, he dreamed of playing for the First Team.

Although it nearly happened, he never quite made it.

“I was on the bench against Aston Villa and when I was warming up, I was willing David Moyes to put me on, but he didn’t,” he says.

After the tears and trauma of being released as an 18-year-old, Fox was determined to prove Everton wrong and when he finally got to play in the Premier League with Burnley and Southampton he viewed it as redemption.

In a thoroughly entertaining podcast, Fox also speaks about his teenage loan spell with Scottish part-timers Stranraer, when a players trip to Benidorm really helped him grow up, and the difficulties of playing in India during the COVID-19 pandemic.
