Speaking on BBC Radio Scotland, the former star recalled the incident saying he ‘just missed’ colliding with Abramovich, Daily star reports.
“About three years ago I was on holiday in Arran and I was driving up the north side of Arran. Every time you go on holiday there you drive round the whole island," Nevin said.
“I came round a corner at the top just before Lochranza and I nearly hit a guy on a bike. I just got out the way at the last moment, I could have killed the guy. It was Roman Abramovich.
“What a story that would have been if I had killed Roman Abramovich. I just missed him. His yacht was off the coast and he was cycling round. He doesn't know to this day that it was me,” the 56-year-old said.

“I have met him quite a few times. He is phenomenally shy, he is an incredibly shy person,'' the former Chelsea star said.
