Net Worth

His sons were not impressed with their father labeling them English

Because of Steve's professional career, the family spent most of their lives in England. Both of their sons were born in London

During an interview with the Guardian, Steve said both of his sons and grandkids were English. 

But their sons were not happy with their father labeling them as English. 

During an interview, Steve revealed that his eldest son John was straight on the phone with him after he read the article and said to him, "We're not English. It's just where we were born." 

He further added, "He made the point that they've got a Scottish mom and a Scottish dad. They've all got Scottish blood." 

So, I need to clear that one up. Let me get it right. My kids are Scottish".

She was the one to persuade her husband to get back to work

After having spent 35 years as a player, coach, and manager, her husband was relishing his time with his grandkids, golf, and fishing. 

Life was comfortable, and in his mind, he was retired, but Karen still saw potential in him and pushed him back to work. 

Steve, in an interview with Sports Mail, said he was chilling out and quite enjoying himself. 

Still, Karen realized he was probably getting bored and frustrated seeing him screaming and swearing while watching matches on the television. 

She felt he was too young to retire and persuaded him to get back to work.

Steve soon got a call from his brother Paul asking if he was interested in giving an interview for Kilmarnock

He thought he would return to his couch if it went wrong, but he returned to management and took up the job. 

In his two years, he led the team to fifth and third. Eventually, he got a call from the Scottish FA

"Small decisions can shape the way your life goes," he told Sports Mail.

Steve's no.1 influence is his father

Steve considers his father his no.1 influence. His father, Eddie, was a top amateur player in Aryshire, but his career was abrupted due to a bad injury in an accident. 

"My father was my no. 1 influence, long before him being involved with my youth team", he said in an interview. 

He also said that his father was strict on the language used and encouraged a good standard of behavior. 

Besides that, Steve's elder brother Paul is a former semi-professional football player. 

While growing up, Steve played alongside his father and uncle Jimmy, as well as brother Paul. Paul played as a center-back for Kilmarnock

Steve and Paul played against each other during the 1982-83 seasons. Steve was playing for St Mirren at the time.
