Rachid is an absolute mess nowadays, too much marching powder coupled with the ale has turned one of the silkiest footballers I ever saw into a scruffy nuisance,shame.
Rachid had a terrific partnership with Barry Silkman at Palace in the 70s. Very intuitive and able to play anywhere in midfield. Unpredictable but watchable!
I once flew to Malaga with Rash and coming back, after a few too many, he started to sing to the whole plane and received a round of polite applause. Still one of the best around despite a few hiccups.
I remember seeing him play for Crystal Palace when I was a young man. He had great potential, shame about the career ending injury!
He married my cousin in 1980, but they were later divorced
So succesful a businessman he was jailed in 2011 for drugs offences!
