Cookie started his career with non-league Aylesbury before he was given his chance to step up when Graham Taylor signed him for his Watford side from the Ducks.

Lee was loaned out to York City with a view to gaining some first team experience where he made 7 appearances scoring a solitary goal in an impressive spell at Bootham Crescent.

Ian Holloway was impressed by his work at York and snapped him up on loan in December 2002. Following a string of poor results, Cook`s signing was a real shot in the arm, as Rangers soared all the way to the Division Two play-off final.

He was given a good go at Watford by boss Ray Lewington, who put him straight in the squad for the remaining 2002/03 season, before making him a permanent starter in the subsequent campaign. Cookie came back home in July 2004 and signed permanently for newly promoted Rangers.

His first performance was in a cauldron of fire against former club Watford, as he grew in stature over the course of the season, scoring two goals and providing some valuable assists. Cook`s best season came in his final spell under John Gregory as he provided some incredible assists and goals to help Rangers stay in the Championship, before financial problems caused him to be sold to Fulham in the summer of 2007 for 2.5m.

A nasty knee injury curtailed his time at Craven Cottage, limited to reserve and friendly appearances for Rangers West London rivals. But Cookie came home on a season long loan with a view to a permanent transfer on 1st August 2008.

This was made permanent but another in a succession of knee injuries prvented him from realising his potential in W12. He was eventually released in the summer of 2012 with but a handful of appearances to his name.
