Neil Ruddock

Where is Neil Ruddock now?

An often controversial character within the game Neil “Razor” Ruddock retired from playing in 2003 after spells at West Ham United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

A confident left-footed centre-back, Ruddock was a tough-tackling player, good in the air and had the ability to bring the ball out of defence.

These attributes led to an England under 21 call up in 1989 as well as a full international call up in 1994 in a friendly against Nigeria.

Since retiring from playing, Ruddock has appeared in numerous television shows including Question of Sport, and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

In 2013, he entered the Celebrity Big Brother house as one of the 12 guests and after a successful three weeks in the house, “Razor” finished in a very respectable 5th position where he formed an unlikely friendship with eventual winner Rylan Clark.

He is also a part-owner of an events company called The Centrehalf Group which arrange bespoke sports events and social occasions.

In 2016, Ruddock participated in ITV’s fishing competition programme ‘The Big Fish Off’ where he lost out to fomer boxing champion Steve Collins.

Ruddock was also a member of Harry Redknapp’s side of ex Premier League players in the TV series ‘Harry’s Heroes’ which aired in March 2019.

The programme took a number of ex professionals on a journey to lose weight with the end goal of playing a team of ex Germany internationals.

Unfortunately, Ruddock didn’t take the weight loss too seriously until he went for a check-up at a Harley Street doctor who confirmed that if he carried on his lifestyle he would suffer from imminent serious health problems.
