A maverick. The former Chelsea forward turned lower-league journeyman shot to Twinfamy (better) when he gave the inside track on his shoddy treatment by former club Rushden and Diamonds with compelling levels of rage and scurrilous detail. Since then he's been up and down: foul-mouthed, sexually explicit, but rarely dull. He's currently playing for Coleraine in the Northern Irish league.

Leon Knight claims he has been racially abused both on and off the pitch since joining Coleraine earlier this season
Leon Knight claims he has been racially abused both on and off the pitch since joining Coleraine earlier this season Photos enlarge Leon Knight today lifts the lid on a shocking tale of physical and verbal abuse that he has been the victim of since in Irish League football. "I had heard almost nothing about the league here before I came over," said Knight. Knight became an instant with Coleraine fans when he scored twice on his debut against Glenavon, but he was on the brink of leaving the Bannsiders before the January transfer window closed. Mansfield Town were prepared to pay his former club Rusden & Diamonds a 30,000 fee they are demanding before the 28-year-old is allowed to play in England again. So why, when he's been racially abused, did Knight stay and agree a new contract until the end of next season? "It's only in the last few weeks that it's happened; since I signed the new contract," said Knight. Knight, who started his career as a trainee with Chelsea, admits he has done wrong in the past, but insists the bad-boy image that has dogged him paints the wrong picture. "In football a lot of things go off hearsay. Once something happens, by the time the third person hears it something has been added to the story," he said. It's his reputation for scoring goals that Knight has enhanced in the Irish League, with the Bannsiders heading to Windsor Park to take on Linfield today, unbeaten under new manager Oran Kearney since he took over from David Platt last month. "I'd a good relationship with David Platt and it was because of him that I stayed in January," said Knight.
