During their playing days at Elland Road, Charlton, who went on to lead Ireland to three major championships including a quarter-final finish at Italia 90, sat into his car only to discover that there was a snowman sitting in the passenger seat.

Giles was quizzed about the incident this evening on Off The Ball on Newstalk and he gleefully admitted his part in the hilarious incident.

"Alan Clarke would be involved, Billy Bremner and probably myself. I remember them putting snow inside his car one day," he said

"He didn't take things very well, he didn't have a great sense of humour like that.

"Footballer are a bit immature and there was a lot of that going on at different times.

"I would say I was involved. I can say that now but I would have denied it to Jack at the time."
