“It was a big car so that you could easily get six people in it and it was wide and it had big boot space for your golf clubs or your cases.“It had everything you would want in a car.” Today, DJ drives a sport utility vehicle – a BMW X5 – that he absolutely loves.
“It was black and it was a great car but it wasn’t too clever in the wintertime in the snow – that’s why I bought the X5,” he said.
“One winter, when it was really heavy, I just couldn’t get out at all because of it.
“So I decided I needed a car that was going to get me out of there and I have never been bothered with the X5.
“What I do have to watch out for is the gangs who try to steal them to order, because they are so popular, and take them out of the country.
IT will comes as no surprise that Derek Johnstone’s first car was a Ford Capri.
The 70s motor at the time was a total babe magnet and the car of choice for many a young blade – except it did not quite work out that way for DJ. So after having had it for just three days, I had to take my first lesson in this car.
The former Rangers star recalled: “Danny Mc Grain and I had the same agent and one of the things he did was to get us a car for a year and mine was a cream-coloured Ford Capri – which in the early 70s was a belter of a car. “I stayed in Bearsden [near Glasgow] at the time and I had to drive it through the gates to get it into the garage and I took it too quick and I ripped the whole side off the car.“The sponsors were absolutely horrified at me – a spanking new car with only 15 miles on the clock. “I was about 22 or 23 when I finally learned to drive – probably a bit later than most people because I didn’t really fancy driving and there were always people to drive us to training and back. But I passed first time.” Just as well, too, because when he played with Chelsea in the 80s, he had to car share with teammates Joe Mc Laughlin, from Greenock, and Welsh keeper Eddie Niedzwiecki.The trio lived in roughly the same area around Tring, Hertfordshire, but when Derek’s turn came to drive his pals were less than happy about his choice of car.He had an Astra Sport, which he loved, but, unfortunately, it wasn’t the biggest car in the world. “The three of us used to travel to training together during the season.But they absolutely hated coming in my car because Joe was 6ft 3in and Eddie was 6ft 2in. “And I would always have Terry Wogan on the radio in the morning, whereas they would play Radio 1 because they were a lot younger than me, so I wasn’t the most popular when it was my turn.” Derek has fond memories, however, of another Vauxhall he drove when he played for Scotland in the 70s. “That was quite a nice one to drive but I think it only came in two colours,” he said.“We always got new cars and that was the best at that moment in time.
