Two Albion captains joined Adam Tighe this week to discuss their careers with the club in the latest of our video Q&s when fans get to ask questions to some of our former legends.

Gordon Greer and Bruno, the man who succeeded the Scotland international as captain in 2016, are both still working for the club after hanging up their boots. After leaving Albion Gordon played for Blackburn and Kilmarnock before retiring in 2018. He runs a car company and is a senior scout based in the north-west while Bruno, who played his final game last season, is now part of Graham Potter’s coaching team.

Gordon was asked about the 2011 League One title-winning campaign. “I wouldn’t say it was the highlight of my career because we were in League One but is it one of the most enjoyable seasons I had. The manager Gus Poyet had a good staff, we had a great set of lads and we played some great stuff that season.”

Captains Q&A: Bruno and Greer

Greer, who captained the Seagulls more than 200 times, led them out for the first game at the Amex and if he had one regret about his time with the club it’s that he couldn’t play in the Premier League with Albion. His last match was the play-off second leg against Sheffield Wednesday in 2016 which ended 1-1, with Greer coming off 12 minutes from time.

Adam suggested it was timed so he could enjoy an ovation from the Albion crowd, but Gordon disagrees. “It wasn’t planned,” he said. “I just think [manager] Chris Hughton wanted to get another striker on the pitch and anyway, I didn’t know at the time whether I’d be leaving the club.”
