Man Utd's Greatest Ever Defenders - Kevin Moran
Kevin Moran is a former Irish footballer who excelled at the top levels in both Gaelic and soccer. He is notable for receiving a red card in the 1985 FA Cup Final against Everton, the first player ever to be sent off in an FA Cup final. TV cameras revealed that he had gone for the ball, and not for Peter Reid in the offending tackle. He was later presented with the winner's medal that had at first been withheld.
