Bruce Grobbelaar was not going to Oldham, just yet. That was according to Liverpool boss Graeme Souness and his Latics’ counterpart, Joe Royle, who joined forces to shoot down stories that the Zimbabwean was destined for Boundary Park. Both managers stressed that there had been no contact between the clubs as Oldham, stapped for cash, awaited FA Permission to sign another top-flight keeper on loan as a replacement for the injured Jon Hallworth. Grobbelaar’s international commitments to the African Cup of Nations as well as a potentially minor surgery was also a factor that may dissuade Oldham against signing him.
