I lost £500k

Former Manchester United, Glentoran and Northern Ireland star Keith Gillespie

Bankrupt football star Keith Gillespie is going to court to fight for more than £500,000 he says he lost in bad business deals.

The former Northern Ireland and Premiership footballer — publicly declared bust nine days ago over a tax bill — has broken his silence about how he lost a fortune.

He told Sunday Life: “There is going to be a court case. I’m fighting to get my money back.”

Gillespie revealed how his tax nightmare began with investments in movies and how his bankruptcy has caused “heartache” for his family.
