Stevie G's autobiography is being released soon, and in promotion of the new book, extracts are being serialised in the The Daily Mail.

Oh no, wait. It doesn't end there.

"It was eye-watering. I tried to close down a winger to block his cross but felt a stinging in my privates. I thought, 'Shit — that doesn't feel right!' It was stinging like fuck."Cool. Well that's enough about that then, Steven.

"The gash looked pretty bad, right across the middle. There was plenty of blood. I needed four stitches and the lads were absolutely pissing themselves."
