One thing he is for certain is dislikeable.
Don't think I can remember a young player coming through who you cannot warm to like Rice. No likeability factor at all. Shame.
Apart from Noble and Zaba, he's one of the few players that goes around the ground after the game applauding the fans. Of course you would never have seen this having never been to a game. The fans love him.
You've hit on my pet hate.
It is not like 40 years ago when players went over and applauded the crowd because they felt a kinship with them.
Now players applaud and visit the crowd because their PR team tell them to. A cold and calculated PR move when players walk over and applaud the crowd and most definitely not from the heart.
Beware of players who do it.
