As Ian Rush has said, Gary Ablett was ''a very versatile player''. I remember him well. He was never a great but he was more than a decent footballer and certainly contributed to Merseyside's key role in English football during the 1980s and '90s.

The respect for Ablett's ability and character is shown by how he was able to move from Liverpool to Everton without any of the vitriol that might be expected from such close rivals.

Another far too early sporting death. Very sad.

Mark Lawrenson's comments are also telling: "He was a good team-mate too, you could never have enough Gary Abletts in your team."

Agreed, Corporal. Very telling.

I have mixed views about Lawrenson as a pundit. Too often, he seems to go for a feeble joke which undermines a decent point being made. However, his sincerity and respect here come across strongly.
