Episode 59 – Interview: Don Masson

Daniel Gray is joined by former Scotland international Don Masson, the man who infamously missed a penalty at Argentina ’78. The pair discuss Don’s early days in Banchory and the spiritualist who forecast his career, his move to Middlesbrough and his playing days at Boro, Notts County and QPR. He talks about a crucial penalty he did score – the one that helped Scotland to the World Cup – and the chaos surrounding the Argentinian campaign. And of course, Don reveals his feelings about THAT spot-kick, for which he is ‘Still Saying Sorry’, the title of his new autobiography. A fascinating glimpse into a man who should be remembered for far more than a Peru penalty.
