Playmaker Fernandez, 36, spent 10 years in Scotland starring for Airdrie, Livingston, Celtic, Dundee United and Kilmarnock.

Fernandez told the Scottish Sun: “I am involved in football and very happy in my new life.

“It is a 24/7 thing and I watch a lot of matches, but it’s not something I am able to talk about too much. It should stay that way.

“The most important thing in football are the players — not the people around them. It is better to be off the radar.

“I can’t help if people know bits of information that is already out there, but I don’t have to give away anything else.

“I’m a consultant — that is the most you will get!”
