After a successful spell in the English top flight throughout the 1990s, Chris Sutton made the move up north to Celtic.
Winning all manner of domestic honours, Sutton's spell under Martin O'Neill even coincided with a run to the 2002/03 UEFA Cup final.
Reinventing himself as an outspoken footballing pundit in his recent years, Sutton is generally regarded as an outspoken, occasionally contrary, but all-round OK sort.
Then again, have you ever heard Alan Thompson talk about Sutton's idea of hi-jinks?
Talking to Open Goal, Thompson, who arrived at Celtic the same summer as Sutton, explained some of the good-natured pranking that used to go on within the Glasgow club's walls.
Recalling a time when Thompson and Sutton used the same launderette for their clothes, the Newcastle-born Thompson decided to have a little fun at Sutton's expense:
I said to him, 'See when you're doing Sutton's jeans, will you get the girls to put creases in them, 'cause you're not meant to have creases in jeans.
When Sutton got the jeans back again, failing to recognise the offending creases, Thompson recalls the former Blackburn Rovers man walking into the Celtic changing-room to a chorus of laughter, and questions about, 'what are ya doing with creases on your jeans?'
So far, so timid.
Not as far as Sutton was concerned. Sussing out immediately that it was Thompson who had caught him out, the Premier League winner in 1994/95 went about getting his revenge - without Thompson suspecting a thing.
The next day, going to a restaurant with some of his teammates, Thompson had to stop into a garage for some petrol,
So I filled up the tank, gone into the station to pay, got me wallet out of the pocket, put it on the counter, and all this pubic hair fell out of me wallet.
Sutton had decided to cut all of his pubic hair off and put it in my wallet.
It takes a rare kind of madness to be carrying out the kind of pranks that you don't even get to see the payoff yourself.
So far, according to Thompson, it's still 1-1; he decided not to target Sutton again since.
