Daniel Gray is joined by Alan McCredie for a conversational journey through the heartlands of Scottish football.

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.
Interview: Ian Crocker
Sky Sports commentator Ian Crocker joins Daniel Gray to talk Scotland, Serbia and Somerset Park. In the first part of a chat that oozes love for the Scottish game, Ian talks about his commentary career thus far, from the highs (co-commentating with Bobby Moore…) to the lows (Having “You’re just a fat Harry Potter” chanted at him…), and gives unique insight into broadcasting in the time of Covid. Then, Dan joins an emotional Ian again the morning after the Belgrade night before to ask him about commentating on Scotland’s incredible victory over Serbia, and what it means to an entire nation.
