As he made a point of telling everybody all the time, Brian Clough really wasn’t one to suffer flashy prima donna players gladly.

So it might come as something of a surprise that Cloughie dabbled in a few endorsement shills over the years, including a starring role in this series of adverts for Shredded Wheat from 1991 and 1992.

Worth keeping your peepers peeled for a couple of mesmerising cameos from Gary Lineker, Peter Shilton and Bryan Robson too…

Of course, this wasn’t the first time Clough had tried his hand at advertising breakfast cereal, as this splendid offering from the Nottingham Forest 1982 squad duly attests…

Simpler times. Better times.
