"We were playing Preston at Deepdale and got a free kick just outside the box. Billy was aiming to hit it with his right foot when the wind rolled the ball away. He just let it run and hit it with his left and it went in like a rocket. He was fast, courageous and very strong. When we got to Newcastle one day, I popped into their dressing room to say hello to my old team-mates. Newcastle had a very good full-back in Bobby Cowell, who said to me: "Albert, how do I play against Billy Liddell?" I replied: "I 'll say one thing, if Billy picks up the ball and you're not close to him when he does, you're dead!"
