Derek Johnstone came in for rough treatment

Were you ever the target of the boot boys and how did you deal with it?

On many an occasion. But the worst was season 1977/78 when I scored 40-odd goals and every defender in the top flight was kicking my ankles, pulling my shirt, and slamming his elbow in.

The way I dealt with it was to give as good as I got and do it with a smile on my face. No defender likes that.

If you have a question for Derek, just email him at dj@eveningtimes.co.uk and we'll print the answer alongside the question.
