Gary was one of Leeds’ favourite sons. He won the title with Leeds and was an integral part of one of Leeds’ strongest midfields playing along side David Batty, Gordan Strachan and Gary McAllister.

Tragically, Gary passed away on Sunday 27th November 2011. Football lost one of its greatest professionals and a true gentlemen.

Speed is number 28 in the 100 Greatest Leeds Players list.
