In 1976, they finally settled in Stratford-upon-Avon where he grew up in the Bishopton area of the town. He was chosen to play for Warwickshire. in series 4, episode 12 of The F Word (originally aired on 29 July 2008), Ramsay visited his old stomping ground at Ibrox, the home playing field of his favourite childhood team, Rangers, and exclaimed, “Home, Sweet Home” and said, “My dream came true when I was spotted in the mid-80s and I joined the youth team here in Ibrox.” He related that one of his fondest memories is playing alongside one of Scotland’s football legends, Ally McCoist, who said about Ramsay, “I remember him well and the one thing that never ever will change is that he’s a competitive so-and-so and wants to do and be the best that he can.” Ramsay recalled that, “the pain of being released on the back of an injury” was only assuaged many years later, “after receiving third Michelin Star”, and concluded that, “without the upset at Ibrox, I would not be the chef I am today.” By this time, Ramsay’s interest in cooking had already begun, and rather than be known as “the football player with the gammy knee”, at age 19, Ramsay paid more serious attention to his culinary education. in 1998, Ramsay opened his own restaurant in Chelsea, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, with the help of his father-in-law, Chris Hutcheson. Opened in 1998, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay was Ramsay’s first solo restaurant, located at Royal Hospital Road, London. Though recently he spends more time on television than in the kitchen, Gordon Ramsay’s Chelsea restaurant still managed to retain its three Michelin star status according to the latest edition of the guide.
