Neil Ruddock, the fondly remembered Liverpool defender who was capped for England, has confessed that he once defecated in the golden toilet of Saddam Hussein, the dictator who was president of Iraq between 1979 and 2003 and who was hanged on 30 December 2006 after being sentenced for crimes against humanity.
The popular ‘Razor’ travelled to Iraq to cheer on British troops accompanied by two Playboy models, Jo Guest and Leah Newman.
The footballer visited a British base in Baghdad that was formerly a palace of dictator Saddam Hussein.
Visiting the palace, Neil Ruddock took the opportunity to use the dictator’s famous golden toilet accompanied by Leah Newman, whom he married in 2013.
Neil Ruddock was clear in his intentions to Leah Newman with regards to the incident, though.
“I want to shit in Saddam Hussein‘s bog,” he recalled telling her in his autobiography ‘The World according to Razor’.
“We had been told about this beforehand and as soon as we found it I asked Leah to leave the room. I didn’t have to ask her twice.”
“When I was halfway through I felt lonely, so I asked Leah she could come and take a picture of me reading a newspaper in that bog (the golden toilet) and she very kindly agreed.”
Neil Ruddock romance with Newman began shortly afterwards
However, that was not the end of Ruddock and Newman‘s story in Saddam Hussein‘s possessions,
“Once I had washed my hands, we went into the bedroom adjacent to Saddam‘s gilded bathroom and, just for a laugh, I pushed Leah onto the bed. As I suspected, Leah finally succumbed to my charms (no woman could resist them for long), and when we arrived in England, we began to see each other.”
