Where is Gerry Taggart now?

A defender who was known for his passionate and committed performances, Gerry Taggart retired from playing professionally in 2007 after a brief spell in non-league football with Tamworth.

Taggart will always be remembered by Bolton Wanderers fans for scoring ‘the goal that never was’ against Everton in 1997 which was the first game at their new Reebok Stadium.

The impact of the disallowed goal (which should have stood) meant that Bolton dropped two important points and ended up relegated that season on goal difference with Everton staying up instead.

After leaving Tamworth, Taggart immediately joined former side Leicester City as one of their first team coaches under manager Gary Megson.

When Megson left after just six weeks to join Bolton Wanderers as their new manager, Taggart and fellow coach Frank Burrows took charge of the first team for five games before Ian Holloway was appointed.

Taggart left Leicester in 2010 when he joined former team-mate Paul Dickov at Oldham Athletic as his assistant manager but he left in 2012 after a run of poor results.

In August 2014 Taggart made a return to football as chief scout at Doncaster Rovers linking up once again with Paul Dickov who was manager at the time.

He resigned a year later when Dickov was sacked by the club.

Away from coaching, Taggart has done a lot work in the media including match summariser for BBC Radio Leicester and numerous spots on BBC Radio 5 live and Sky Sports News.
