On Paul McGrath鈥檚 birthday, a reminder of one of his greatest performances.

Giants Stadium, 1994. An Italy side featuring the brilliant Roberto Baggio.

McGrath is unfit, but unbowed. And on this day, utterly unbeatable.

Happy Birthday @Paulmcgrath5

Possibly the greatest centre half to pull on the Villa shirt.

Privileged to have travelled the country watching him week in, week out #UTV

So many memories of Macca in my favourite @AVFCOfficial side.

A magical Warhorse if there ever was one.

By unfit, you mean struggling with alcoholism and not getting the proper support he needed at the time?
I was at this game in Giant's Stadium, a truly unforgettable experience, and Paul McGrath's performance that day was just magnificent- Happy Birthday Paul!
Happy birthday to the young Paul McGrath #legend As a young lad, I was fortunate to be in Giants Stadium to witness that fantastic performance, a memory I cherish to this day.
