Andy Murray had his chances to play Scottish professional football according to proud mum Judy
The tennis-coach parent of two current ATP players dropped the news on a local holiday programme, Celebrity Chase’s Christmas Special.
“When Andy he was 14 had to make the decision between tennis and football because he got offered the chance to sign with Glasgow Rangers on a youth thing,” the former British Fed Cup captain said,
“So it was never just about the tennis, it was just about having as normal a childhood as possible.”
Murray instead decamped to Barcelona, where he polished his tennis trade before stepping onto the ATP,
The elder brother of the three-time Grand Slam winner, Jamie, also had his chances for success in another sport, according to his mum.
“When Jamie was 15 he had a golf handicap of three as well as being a good tennis player,”
