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.

Derek chats to Scottish broadcasting legend Archie Macpherson to talk about his new book More Than A Game: Living with the Old Firm and to look back at an eventful career.

The book looks at the unsavoury scenes at the end of the 1980 Scottish Cup final when a riot broke out between Rangers and Celtic supporters and the aftermath of that event which is still being felt to this day.

Archie also reflects on an amazing career that’s seen him cover World Cups, when Scotland used to quality once upon a time, notable interviews, memorable players and what he makes of the current state of Scottish football.

Enjoy folks!

Celtic Underground No259 - Archie MacPherson

Last week we had Derek Rae on the podcast.  We talked about his technique, love for the game and influences.  His start had been via David Francy but there was one man who is perhaps, the most important sports broadcaster in Scottish sport history.  I am of course talking about the legendary Archie MacPherson.

Those of us of a certain age grew up with the luxury of football highlights of games by tea time Sunday with Sportscene on BBC1 and Scotsport on ITV, which Archie on the Beeb and Arthur Montford on STV.  We may not have got all the games and all the goals, but what we got was far superior than the current fare.  Archie has been mocked for his come over, his sports jackets and his "swept away" turn of phrase, but all of that is done with the type of humour reserved only for those whom we truly admire.  This is no-one better than Archie so...Enjoy.
