Premier League winner looks completely different years after retirement with his trademark mullet a thing of the past | The Sun

THIS Premier League champion looks very different almost three decades on from winning the title.

The former Blackburn star was a stalwart in defence as they won the 1995 Premier League title.

The 57-year-old appeared 234 times for Blackburn before leaving for Rangers in 1998.

While with the Gers he made just seven appearances but became a treble-winner when the club lifted the league, Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup in 1998/98.

The former defender then returned to the Premier League with Coventry before moving to Bolton.

A loan spell with Blackpool would follow before he penned his retirement in 2003.

Prior to Blackburn, he had also turned out for Manchester City in the old First Division.

The Scot is also embedded into England's football history as the unfortunate player Paul Gascoigne flicked the ball over for his famous goal at Euro 96.

Afterwards, he played for another five years for the Scotland national team, picking up 51 caps between 1993 and 2001.

But perhaps he is best remembered for his famous mullet hairdo.

The mystery player is none other than Colin Hendry.

Hendry recently appeared during a Rangers legends match.

However, his famous mullet appeared to be a thing of the past, with him now donning a shorter hairstyle look.

Following his retirement, Hendry tried his hand at coaching.

He was a manager at Blackpool between July 2004 and November 2005.

He then became assistant to Steve Evans at Boston before becoming manager of Clyde FC in 2007.

After a four-year gap, Hendry then returned to Blackburn in 2012 as assistant to Gary Bowyer and later Eric Kinder in the club's Under-21 side.
