Episode 56 – Interview: Jim Leighton
Former Scotland, Aberdeen, Manchester United and Hibernian goalkeeper Jim Leighton chats to Daniel Gray. The two discuss Jim’s early years in Junior football, the influence of his father, Aberdeen glory days, World Cups with Scotland, hard times at Old Trafford and happy ones at Hibs. Plus, insight into the delights of goalkeeping from claiming catches to organising walls, and answers to the questions “Are keepers wired differently?” and “Is there really a goalkeepers’ union?” Jim also talks about his prostate cancer, and his determination to prevent other men from facing the same ordeal. An entertaining, honest listen with one of the gentlemen of the game.

Steve Clarke’s doorbell and Dundee faces
Daniel Gray is joined by Scotsman football writer Alan Pattullo, Times journalist Kenny Farquharson and Nutmeg publisher Ally Palmer to talk all things magazine issue 17, and whatever else comes up. This conversational meander takes us from the things we can now hear managers and players shouting to the many faces of Tannadice, and from homophobia in men’s football to the first Brazilian players in Scotland. Plus, Kilmarnock joy and despair, the Challenge Cup, Joe Tulip, being blanked by Bing Crosby and an answer to that age-old question: what happens when you ask Jim Duffy to sign your white jeans?
Daniel Gray is joined by Alan McCredie for a conversational journey through the heartlands of Scottish football. The pair delve into the pages of their new book, Snapshot (published jointly by Nutmeg and Birlinn Publishing), recounting their Saturday roaming from Lowland to island in search of stories, scenes and scraps (from chippies).
