Player Profile

Few players earn legendary status at football clubs but Elliott was certainly one player who can fall under that category at Leicester. He had to work his way up the ladder the hard way, failing to break into the Charlton Athletic first team before going on to play for Torquay United, Scunthorpe United and Oxford United, where his performances caught the eye of City boss Martin O'Neill.

The commanding, never-say-die centre back often played as part of a successful three-man defence under O'Neill, with Gerry Taggert and Steve Walsh. His best day in a City shirt came in 2000, when he captained Leicester to a 2-1 victory over Tranmere Rovers ands scored both goals. Goals, too, were a highlight of Elliott's game - chipping in with plenty from set-pieces, 26 league goals in total from 245 league appearances for the Foxes.

When O'Neill left Leicester for Celtic he tried to take Elliott with him, offering a £3.5 million bid for his services, but it was unsuccessful when Elliott penned a new contract with City until 2005 - a contract that was to be his last in professional football.

Elliott was born in England but opted to play for Scotland thanks to his Scottish grandmother. He played 18 times in total for the Tartan Army and scored one goal in the process. When his career dwindled out he had a ten-game loan spell with Ipswich Town before announcing his retirement from fotball in January 2005.

Elliott has tried his hand in management and took charge of Stafford Rangers in 2011.
