Battlecry Nothing so far
Claim To Fame

Once managed to ‘release’ the best part of 6 pints onto the central reservation of the M8 en route to Ibrox and still catch up with the car he was travelling in ('To be fair, it was a Boxing Day fixture with heavy tailbacks, so I didn’t have to be Linford Christie!')

Road To The Real An old friend of Bill Ryan - they went to Craigmount together, were each other's Best Man and watched Hibs together
