Episode 52 – Archie MacPherson on the Old Firm

Legendary broadcaster and writer Archie MacPherson joins host Daniel Gray to discuss More Than a Game (Luath Press), his new book on ‘Living with the Old Firm’. In this moving and thoughtful conversation about a lifetime of the Celtic v Rangers rivalry, MacPherson takes us back to the Hampden Riot of 1980, The Ibrox Disaster of 1971 and the 1995 murder of Mark Scott, and to his memories of how the fixture charged the atmosphere in the Glasgow of his youth. A compelling dissection of sectarianism, identity and one of the world’s most fractious sporting fixtures.
