The conversation then took a stark right turn to discuss the former Scotland captain's view: "Barry, you're too nice. I remember you as a player and you're just too nice now. You give them too much there.

The caller kept going, cutting in: "That's what I mean, you need to stick the boot in, you're too nice, you're too conservative, mate; I know what you were like as a player. I just wish you took the aggression you showed as a player across to the radio." Ferguson, raising his voice, took a firm stance: "I'm not getting you mate, at all. Too nice about what?
