    Former Manchester City star and Soccer Saturday pundit Rodney Marsh looks unrecognisable in a new long-haired snap.

    Marsh sported flowing brown locks and a fringe during his four years playing for City during the 1970s before ditching the look for short grey hair during his time as a Sky Sports pundit. However, almost two decades on from leaving Soccer Saturday, Marsh looks completely different to his time analysing matches on television.

    In a picture posted on Twitter last week, Marsh can be seen stood in front of a water fountain in the countryside with both his thumbs up as he smiles at the camera.

    His shoulder-length grey hair in the picture leaves him unrecognisable from his playing career and time spent as a pundit during the 1990s and early 2000s.

    Marsh continues to work in sports media, though, hosting a show on football radio channel SiriusXMFC, having previously had a spell working for talkSPORT.

    Following spells with Fulham and QPR, where he won the League Cup and the Third Division title, Marsh joined City in 1972 and went on to spend four years in Manchester.

    During that time, he scored 47 goals in 150 appearances for the club as well as winning the League Cup again in his final season with City.

    Marsh later played in both the Republic of Ireland and the USA before retiring in the summer of 1979 at the age of 34. He also scored once in nine caps for England during his career.

    A brief coaching career saw him manage a trio of clubs in the USA before he turned to broadcasting and began working as a pundit for Sky Sports.

    However, Marsh was sacked in 2005 and removed from the Soccer Saturday line-up for joke he made about the devastating tsunami in Asia. He would later work for talkSPORT before appearing on a string of reality TV shows.
