Where is Keith Gillespie now?

A member of the Manchester United youth side which included David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs etc, Keith Gillespie retired from playing in 2013 after two seasons at Longford Town who play in the League of Ireland First Divison.

In 2010 Keith Gillespie was unfortunately declared bankrupt after losing a £7 million fortune through gambling and poor business investments.

He has since released a book called How Not to be a Football Millionaire which has achieved critical acclaim for its brutal honesty and how it gives a completely different perspective of a professional footballer’s life.
