The Strictly Come Dancing judge, 61, has spent the last few weeks undergoing tests after fans spotted a lump under her arm during an online video. In a new video posted on Instagram, the TV star said: “I got two sets of results back today and the shadow on my kidney seems absolutely fine, they’re not worried about it. “Some other, I’m going to say polyps, there was a fancy name for them, are just absolutely fine so there was no cancer there, so that was good. “Now I need to have my boobies checked one more time when I have a minute. “My hormones are still all over the place, so I started today with some oestrogen to see if we can balance the body better, and she does recommend that maybe I take a little time for myself, which I’ll try to do. “Thank you for all of you who spotted it, who made me go and get my MoT of myself – I really appreciate it.” Ballas previously told fans she had been to hospital for an “internal probe” of her ovaries, kidneys and adrenal glands” after fans shared concerned messages when they spotted a lump under her right arm. She captioned the video: “Dear Fans and friends. Got two sets of results back and after feeling very anxious for several weeks I can now breathe. “I want to thank each and every one of you for your caring, kind and loving messages. “You proved that social media can be a good place, watching out for each other is always a good thing, and I feel blessed. “Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll start to feel less tired and my old self again. “Gratitude to you all. Thank you from my heart to yours.” Awesome AJ glad as hatter Stunning AJ Odudu looks the part in a stylish hat as she shows off her perfect pins in last night’s episode of Strictly. Her partner Kai Widdrington looks pretty impresssed too as he focuses on keeping her upright. Meanwhile, TV presenter Rhys Stephenson and his partner Nancy Xu step out serenely on to the floor. EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice look like they know what they’re doing too. EMOTION Dan Walker STEPPING UP Rose and Giovanni Enders star wows top US channel Rose Ayling-Ellis is poised for stardom in the US after taking Strictly by storm. The EastEnders actress got noticed by US TV bosses when she and partner Giovanni Pernice were interviewed on one of America’s biggest channels. Rose, 27, and dancer Giovanni, 31, wowed viewers on CBS, which averages a six-million audience. Thrilled Rose, who is deaf, said: “I thought, ‘Oh it’s very nice,’ but didn’t realise the show went everywhere. We’ve reached America!” Asked if Hollywood could come calling, Rose said: “I would love to do more acting for sure.” The star, who’s played deaf character Frankie Lewis in EastEnders since last year, is Strictly’s FAN Ed Sheeran first deaf contestant. She added: “Me being on Strictly has shown deaf people are more capable than people believe.” Rose, who has been with boyfriend Samuel Arnold for seven years, has star fans including singer Ed Sheeran, who tweeted her when she got a perfect score. Dan’s tears for pal Gary Dan Walker wept yesterday as he paid tribute to his pal footballer Gary Speed on the 10th anniversary of his suicide. On Football Focus ahead of last night’s dance performance, Dan hailed him as “an amazing footballer and an all-round good bloke”. He said: “Anybody who played alongside Gary would always say he was brilliant in the dressing room – always the player that others went to when they had a problem.”

The findings of a Royal Pharmaceutical Society survey were revealed to the Health Secretary by RPS director Clare Morrison. Morrison and Yousaf were taking part in an event on the pressures the NHS is facing during the pandemic. She said: “It is completely unacceptable pharmacists are being asked to work from 8am-6pm without so much as 15 minutes for lunch. “We really are on a knife edge and we need some action to be taken now.” Yousaf said an NHS workforce strategy would be published “in a few weeks”. ■ Gordon Blackstock The family of a schoolgirl who died more than 50 years ago while running away from an orphanage have found out she may have been sexually abused. Patricia Meenan’s siblings will renew their fight for answers over the 12-year-old’s death in 1969 after the new claim emerged in court papers. Her tragic life is part of a civil case being prepared against the Daughters of Charity, who ran the controversial Smyllum Park orphanage in Lanark between 1864 and 1981. A former resident is to sue the Catholic religious order over claims she was sexually abused during her five-year stay at the home, including by two priests who have since died. She is to claim other girls including her older sister and Patricia also faced abuse and told nuns about it – but were ignored. The family of Patricia – known as Patsy at the home – have said they’ve faced a wall of silence over her death. She was fatally injured after being hit by a car while running away from the Lanarkshire orphanage. Her sister Razia Khan, 57, who lives in Glasgow, said: “We have been told BaTTle Patricia’s sisters Razia and Liz Pic Alasdair MacLeod HelP Macpherson Support meetings for benefit claimants Claimants of benefits will be offered support meetings in a Scotland-wide service. Social Security Minister Ben Macpherson has vowed advisers will be available to answer questions and help with form filling as part of their “delivery service”. It’s part of changes to the way benefits are paid in Scotland after several areas were devolved to Holyrood. Macpherson said: “Social Security Scotland’s delivery service is there to provide extra support and choice. “We’re offering face to face meetings, or video or phone calls – whatever will best meet the needs of people.” Last week it emerged people with debt issues could lose in-person help from charities as a result of the UK Government seeking to shift funding online. TriBuTe Memorial to orphanage victims, St Mary’s Cemetery, Lanark there has been no records for years – even as to why she was taken into care. “While her death was 50 years ago, for our family we have never stopped wanting answers. “If it has emerged she made complaints of such a serious nature, surely they were recorded? “Daughters of Charity need to tell us what they have recorded about Patricia.” Sister Liz Meehan, 55, said: “The death of Patricia destroyed my mum. She died just a few years later of a broken heart and she never got over her death. We have never got any satisfactory answers over what and why Patricia died. “We fear we’ll never know what happened to her on that day – or what she was running from.” The former resident taking the civil case, who’s identity is protected by a court anonymity order, said: “I’m speaking out because the family deserve to know what happened to Patsy. With my brother and sister, we stayed with four other families in a self-contained ‘house’ within Smyllum. “In 1968 Patsy was brought in to our Prayers Patricia Daughters of Charity need to tell us what they have recorded about Patricia house and she was very quiet. It was very unusual for someone to be without their brothers or sisters and it took a while for her to speak to anyone.” The ex-resident said Patsy later confided in her sister about her abuse. Both went on to tell the Mother Superior who ran the home about the abuse, she said. She continued: “It was no use. We would just be belted for telling made-up tales.” She said she was part of a group of children who regularly ran away from Smyllum. She once escaped from the hated home with Patricia before they were stopped by police. She added: “We used to run away all the time. One day Patricia asked if she could come along with my brother, my sister and me. “Patricia had complained of being abused – as we all had. “I believe she was sexually abused and told the Mother Superior about it. We used to escape through a gap in the gate. “I was six or seven, my sister was around 12 and my brother around 10. “I remember looking around Woolworths in Lanark before we were stopped by police. They said, ‘Are you from Smyllum?’ We couldn’t deny

One of the nuns said, ‘You are making out that things are happening in this house when they aren’t.’” Patricia was tragically hit by a car almost a year later. The ex-resident added: “Not all the nuns and priests were bad.

That’s stayed with me. I was made to feel I’m beneath everyone – and that feeling’s stayed with me all my life. “I first went to the police in the 1990s and then tried to sue the Daughters of Charity in the early 2000s but couldn’t because of restrictions over how historic the claim was. That’s been lifted now and I want justice.” The ex-resident is to meet with the surviving members of Patricia’s family to discuss her life in Smyllum. In 2018 the Scottish Child Abuse heard evidence from former residents at Smyllum. It also heard how Patricia had died while running away. Her family said they had previously been told by the nuns who ran the home that the incident was the first time Patricia had tried to flee. Patricia, who had lived at the home for nearly two years before the tragedy, is believed to be the last fatality of a child in care at Smyllum. She was struck by a car on the A73 and taken to Law Hospital but died on October 10, 1969, from head injuries. Like a lot of children in Smyllum, Patricia wasn’t an orphan but had been taken into care due to concerns over her home life. Her fireman dad Robert Lawson Meenan died in a car crash in 1959. Her mum Elizabeth was plagued by poor health after contracting TB and died in 1973. Her brother Jim, who now lives near Cambridge, said: “I am not shocked by these revelations. It’s always been my suspicion that Patricia must have gone through a lot during her brief young life. It leaves me very angry.” Her sister Teresa, a 59-year-old charity worker who lives in London, said: “I still find all the circumstances surrounding my sister’s death suspicious. You can tie yourself in knots trying to find out what happened. “There were no real records about the circumstances of her death – and that’s always been a red flag for me.” In 2018 it was revealed the Daughters of Charity had buried up to 400 children who had died at Smyllum in unmarked graves. Patricia wasn’t one of them and was buried in a family plot in Glasgow. A spokesman for the Daughters of Charity, based in London, said it could not comment on the ongoing legal action.

6 Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 email MAN DIES AFTER his TRUCK is HIT by FALLEN tree support Jim Watt Icon Watt defends the safety of boxing Boxing legend Jim Watt has defended the sport over claims fighters are at a higher risk of developing dementia. A Cardiff University study found young men who boxed at amateur level were three times more likely to show signs of brain impairment as they get older – particularly between the ages of 75 and 89. And the onset of conditions lilke Alzheimer’s was five years earlier in men who had boxed, compared to those who hadn’t, the survey added. Report author Professor Peter Elwood has called for punches to the head to be banned in young boxers. His findings follow recent concerns over links between players heading a football and dementia. However, former world lightweight champion Watt says there are many more dangerous sports than boxing. He pointed to the fact that boxers have regular brain scans and medical checks while a fight can be stopped if a boxer is taking too many punches. Jim added: “It’s important to look at the plus side of boxing and the character building it brings and social benefits. “Someone who boxes is less likely to drink or take drugs and more likely to take care of their body. “Boxing does an awful lot of good and far outweighs the bad.” Watt became world lightweight champion 1979 before retiring in 1981 after four title defences. Sex attack on woman A police investigation has been launched after a woman was sexually assaulted on a busy Glasgow street.

The 35-year-old died after his Nissan Navara was struck on the B977 Dyce to Hatton of Fintry Road, Aberdeenshire, on Friday. Cops also confirmed that officers responding to the incident returned to their parked van only to discover it had been flattened by another tree. Sergeant Craig McNeill, of the Divisional Road Policing Unit at Inverurie, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the man’s family and friends at this time.” The fatality brings the UK death toll from the storm to three after a head teacher died when a tree fell on to his car in Antrim and another man was killed by a falling tree in Cumbria. The devastating scale of Storm Arwen’s fury will cost the country millions for the clean-up bill. Hu r r ic a ne force winds tore a path of destruction down the east c o a s t o f Scotland. Trees were uprooted, roofs were torn off properties and thousands were left without power. Almost 100,000 homes were still without power last night as power firms battled to get supplies back up.

Main roads, including the main A1 east coast link to England, were closed as a precaution. Many others were blocked by fallen trees. On the A939 Cock Bridge to Tomintoul road in Moray, authorities brought in a specialist snowclearing vehicle to shift snow drifts which had closed the road.

The Met Office said the storm had touched 98mph just over the border in Northumberland, with a high speed of 78mph recorded at Inverbervie in Kincardineshire. There was a 97mph gust detected at Glen Ogle in Perthshire. Today, the country wakes to yet another weather warning – this time for ice. Dan Stroud of the Met Office said: “Storm Arwen proved a pretty significant event over Scotland.” Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks said 75,000 households were still off-grid as teams battled conditions to get the power back on.

web anxiety Hussain Nadiya My toilet flush hell by bullies Nadiya Hussain has confessed she’s sometimes unable to clean her toilet – as it gives her flashbacks to when bullies flushed her head down the lavatory at school. The Bake Off winner, who suffers from anxiety and panic disorder, said she feels lucky to have a family who support her on her off-days and help do the household chores. The 36-year-old mother of three told Psychologies magazine: “I have days when I say to [husband] Abdal and the kids, ‘I can’t do the toilet today,’ so they do it instead. “I’m lucky in that the kids really understand what the experience [of being bullied] did to me.” poster girl Anne Chaser Fair play to TV Mel on autism The Chase star Anne Hegerty welcomes TV personalities Mel Sykes and Christine McGuinness speaking out about autism – as she is tired of being the poster girl. Anne, 63, was not diagnosed with Asperger’s – a form of high-functioning autism – until 2003 when she was 45 but says she is sick of talking about it and nobody listening. Asked if Mel and Christine had got in touch, she said: “Quite possibly they did and I might have said something like, ‘Guys, I am getting so very tired of being the poster girl – is there any chance you could talk to Chris Packham or someone like that? “People wanted to listen to me talk about it, except I felt an awful lot of them weren’t actually listening.” Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 7 CoP who broke Covid rules to CoiN it iN as elvis A liTTle less CoMpeNsATioN CaUgHt in a trap Stuart Maclennan puts on his Elvis Presley tribute act These loans were not for people who already had well-paid, full-time jobs all sHooK Up Maclennan and, right, in his police uniform with former Rangers owner Craig Whyte a Fool sUCH as i Maclennan, left, at bash and his firm’s website PC could face probe over £5k grant claim for his wedding company A serving police officer could face an investigation over a £5000 Covid support grant he claimed for his second job as an Elvis impersonator. Stuart Maclennan asked for the money despite the rules stating applicants would be ineligible if they had another full-time job or income, the Sunday Mail can reveal. The 43-year-old – who previously broke lockdown rules for his entertainment side work – applied for the grant from Scottish Enterprise for his company, Subsafe Audio Ltd, for which he is the sole director. The fund was designed for struggling wedding businesses. The PC could face demands to hand the money back if forms are found to have been incorrectly filled in. A source said: “These loans were for small business owners who were in serious danger of losing their livelihood. They were not for people who already had well-paid, full-time jobs in the public sector. “The application form specifically asked applicants to tick a box declaring the business ■ John Ferguson Political Editor was their main income and they had no other full-time employment. Anyone who did have another job and income wouldn’t have been eligible for money. “It is likely there will be an investigation into the circumstances in this case.” We previously revealed how Maclennan broke lockdown rules by performing as Elvis at a 21st birthday party. He was reprimanded after footage showed him breaking a series of Covid-19 safety rules when he turned up at Angel Cassells’s house in June 2020. The constable sang The Wonder of You in a white jumpsuit with his arm around Angel. Another image showed him taking selfies next to a hot tub with eight guests. Two-metre social distancing was not observed at the party. At the time Scottish Government guidance only permitted three households to meet together. The policeman, from Renfrew, also travelled more than twice the allowed distance to attend the party. Records on the Scottish Enterprise website reveal Maclennan’s firm received £5000 from the £25million emergency Covid fund. He uses Subsafe Audio to run a wedding business called Fresh Entertainments. Scottish Enterprise said: “The fund was designed to support businesses within the wedding and civil partnership industry to survive the pandemic. Applicants found to provide incorrect information leading to their application being ineligible are expected to return the funds and we continue to follow up cases where allegations have been made.” Maclennan declined to comment. Police Scotland said: “We have responded to the lockdown breach and have no reports or complaints relating to this business.”

TV host Nick Ede was asked if Arlene was motivated by being replaced by Alesha Dixon in 2009, which sparked a major ageism row. Nick said: “100 per cent – and it is a wonderful thing ITV have taken on somebody who’s 78. “The ageism thing at the BBC was wrong. They still have people like Mary Berry on there but at that time it was contentious, DAME Arlene Phillips and for her to be doing a show which is up against her old programme shows she is still a big star. “She’s just been made a dame. She is still relevant and it is a validation for her that people are loving her. “When she comes out, she’ll be overawed at the love everybody is having for her and it’s quite deserved because she is a national treasure. “It shows the BBC missed out.” Arlene was a judge on Strictly alongside Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli from its 2004 launch but was replaced by its 2007 winner Alesha in 2009. Nick and Arlene have been best friends for 10 years after meeting at a charity event. ■ emma Pryer I’m a celeb star Danny Miller had some cracking plots as emmerdale’s aaron aron Dingle – but his fiancee says his greatest role has been supporting her through the toughest of times. Childhood sweetheart Steph Jones – who gave birth to their son Albert five weeks ago – says Danny was her rock as she battled anxiety. In her first newspaper chat, the NHS midwife said: “He was the light at the end of my tunnel. Danny has talked about his own mental health and how I’ve helped but he never really takes credit for what he does for other people. “He’s been my absolute rock and he’s never admitted how much he’s helped me. I’d hate to think where I’d be without him because I was so shut off – my mum was so worried about me.” In a revealing interview – at times emotional but peppered with laughter too – 30-year-old Steph also: ● Defends Danny against critics who say he should be at home with his baby. ●Reveals they want more children – and will start trying once I’m A Celeb finishes. ● Says she misses their chats as “we talk about everything”. ●Shares how Danny supports bereaved families, including Manchester Arena bomb victims, via his charity Once Upon A Smile. Steph tells how she and Danny, also 30, were sweethearts at school. She said: “He was my first kiss in primary school, aged eight. We dated as teenagers and I was really sad when he moved away. Two years ago, when we reconnected via his sister, we were both in a really bad place. “For him, that meant locking himself in a dark room, playing PlayStation and not talking. He would often get clammy hands. He wasn’t good with public appearances. He would get stressed. But together we both found confidence. “I was also shutting people out. I had come out of a relationship. I was living alone and working 12-hour shifts. “I went through this really low lull with really low self-esteem and I had anxiety. “I think it’s easy as a woman to compare yourself to other people too and I just was not feeling good about myself. I’ve just never felt like that in my life before. “But Danny really encouraged me to talk and say how I was feeling. He referred me to a therapist he was using. He also helped build up my confidence. I didn’t need many sessions but they really helped. “He’d take pictures when I wasn’t aware and then show me and say, ‘Look at how beautiful you are.’ It’s such a small thing but he really lifted me up. “Now we know each other so well that we both know when something is up and we can help each other.” Steph has been upset by people I hate to think where I would be without him... he’s lifted me up HOPEFUL From top, Danny on I’m A Celeb… and with Steph on holiday Dan is criticising Danny for going on the Fiancee tells how actor helped her with mental health battle show when Albert is so young – but grateful for the support of actors Adam Thomas (and his twin, reality star Scott), Jeff Hordley, Lucy Pargeter and Laura Norton.

web out as bad weather forces 48hr blackout Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 9 axe fears after storm damage to set I’m A Celebrity... was facing axe fears last night after bosses announced Storm Arwen had forced a 48-hour blackout. ITV’s flagship reality show was pulled just hours before last night’s episode – and will not be aired tonight either. Bosses said the production base suffered “significant damage” but a spokesman said contestants were safe and remained inside Gwrych Castle, near Abergele in Wales, where the programme is filmed. It is the first time in the show’s 18-year history that there has been a mid-series shutdown. It was already engulfed in chaos after three celebs needed medical attention. Bosses were said to have fears for music producer Naughty Boy, ex-Strictly judge Arlene Phillips and singer Frankie Bridge after the departure of Good Morning Britain host Richard Madeley. Insiders are concerned a decision could be made to ditch the series, which would cost ITV millions. A source said: “This has caused absolute panic. It is completely unprecedented.” Only essential crew are on site, with the show saying it regards the “wellbeing of the cast and crew as the utmost priority”.

The show averages 11.5million viewers, advertising slots bring in a fortune and there is a lucrative sponsorship deal with bingo site Tombola.

He wants to provide for our family. I convinced him to do it.” Danny quit Emmerdale after 13 years to try other things – possibly as a quiz show host.

Steph could barely watch at home in Stockport, Greater Manchester. But her puzzled cavapoo dogs Gini and Kenny did – as they recognised Danny’s voice. He referred to wanting to make his son proud. Steph said: “I was crying. Seeing him become a dad has made me love him more than ever. “Albert is such a chilled baby. Every time he looks up at me, I see Danny because they have the same bright blue eyes.” Then, with a laugh, she added: “We can’t wait to have more kids and we want to start asap – so straight after camp! Albert will grow up having a great personality because of Danny.” Steph is keeping a video diary to share with Danny. She said: “I don’t want him to miss a moment. This way, he doesn’t have to.” Steph reckons Danny will be glad soap pals Simon Gregson and Adam Woodyatt have joined the show, which is on ITV tonight at 9pm. She added: “The banter, the impressions – I think being around his actor friends, we’ll see him come into his own.” And after that BushTucker trial, what nosh will he fancy when he’s out?

CHECK OUT VISITSCOTLAND.COM/GREATDAYSOUT TO FIND OUT MORE ON GREAT DAYS OUT IN SCOTLAND struggle Family of migrants wait at camp near Dunkirk Pic Phil Harris sNp Mp blasts Tories’ bill ■ Gordon Blackstock A nationalist politician has claimed a controversial new law brought in to tackle dangerous Channel crossings will kill even more people. SNP MP Anne McLaughlin is to write individually to every Tory MP urging them to snub the new border law, being debated in Parliament in December. It comes amid concern about asylum seekers being bussed from Dover to a detention centre in Scotland. Critics have said the Nationality and Borders Bill will not only make it a crime to cross the Channel – but make it illegal for anyone, including charities, to help people making the perilous trip. The law will also give Border Force officials immunity from prosecution if they turn back people crossing the Channel who later die. Last week at least 27 migrants died while making the trip in a dinghy. The tragedy prompted a diplomatic war between the UK and France over how to solve the crisis. McLaughlin, SNP spokeswoman for justice and immigration, said: “SNP MPs in Westminster spent weeks scrutinising the new bill and we are sure it will be even more warning McLaughlin concerns Centre in Dungavel dangerous for migrants. It’s going to result in more deaths. “They say they are doing it to keep people safe – they aren’t. It’s to keep people out. But it won’t do that either.” The bill also proposes making it possible to send asylum seekers to “offshore” immigration centres while their claims are processed. Currently, asylum seekers are sent to detention centres in the UK. But the huge numbers mean some are sent on nine-hour bus journeys to Dungavel, Lanarkshire. Kate Alexander, head of Scottish Detainee Visitors, said: “When I visited Dungavel in October, I learnt around 50 people who had crossed the Channel had been brought there for ’processing’. Staff expect it to happen again.” The Home Office was asked to comment.

Leader Alex Cole-Hamilton has called for more options, support and treatment for patients, and urged the Scottish Government to target people who could help with shopping or chores. Ahead of the release of new estimates of the number of Scots with longer-term symptoms after contracting Covid, Cole-Hamilton criticised the “woeful provision” available. The latest ONS figures from the start of October estimated 1.2million people in the UK – 1.9 per cent of the population – were experiencing long Covid. Cole-Hamilton said: “A crisis on that scale would normally be cause for the Health Secretary to clear his diary but despite patients being left gasping for breath serious action seems beyond the SNP. “Long Covid patients would be better moving to England where there are established clinics and a care pathway, given how woeful provision is here. I want to give patients with long Covid new hope.” Calling for the Government to organise volunteers in a way similar to the Scotland Cares scheme launched in the first wave, he added: “We have an army of volunteers who would be happy to help people but the Government needs to take on a coordinating role to make that happen.” 17 more new virus deaths Scotland yesterday recorded 17 Covid-linked deaths and 2287 new cases in the previous 24 hours.

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said people should “act as though it is already here” and that the country “must not drop our guard”. The first two British cases of the new Omicron variant – which is rapidly spreading in southern Africa – were discovered in Nottingham and Brentwood, Essex, yesterday. Scientists are concerned about the B.1.1.529 variant first reported in South Africa because it has about 50 mutations overall and more than 30 on the spike protein – more than twice that of the Delta variant that’s dominant in the UK. Yousaf said: “News that two cases of the Omicron variant have been confirmed in England is a stark reminder that we must not drop our guard. ALERT Yousaf. “No cases have yet been detected Below, Sturgeon in Scotland but the fact this new variant is on our doorstep is a worry and we should act as though it is already here. “Questions remain about its severity, transmissibility and effect on treatments or vaccines and scientists are working at pace to provide additional information. “Until more is known we must … do everything we can to minimise the risk of spreading infection.” Following discussions with UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid as well as the other devolved administrations, he said Scotland is aligning with the UK Government’s new border restrictions. These will require fully vaccinated arrivals to the country to take a PCR test within two days and to self-isolate until a negative result is received. He said the measures will be introduced “as soon as possible” and said Scotland c o u l d t a k e restrictions further if it needed to.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted “we all have a part to play in beating” the new variant. She said her government “is introducing new requirements for travellers, but we all have a part to play in beating this new threat.

After 54 yeArs, I’m AshAmed to be sNP member MSP bully claims led to dispute John Ferguson ■ Political Editor One of the SNP’s longest serving members has quit after 54 years over claims Nicola Sturgeon has failed to take action against an MSP accused of bullying. In an explosive resignation statement – released on the eve of the First Minister’s keynote conference speech – Dr Malcolm Kerr says he would be “ashamed and embarrassed” to remain in the party. The 68-year-old GP, a former Holyrood candidate and senior party official, has been left furious that multiple complaints over the conduct of Cunninghame North MSP Kenneth Gibson, including assault claims, remain outstanding after more than two years. Gibson, 60, who denies the allegations, was re-elected in May despite calls for him to be dropped as a candidate and now heads one of Holyrood’s most influential committees. Kerr, the former convener of the SNP’s Cunninghame North Constituency Association, said: “In my half-century of membership I never thought I’d say this, but I’m now ashamed and embarrassed to be an SNP member. “Some two dozen active members in North Ayrshire drew SNP HQ’s attention to widespread concerns about Gibson’s alleged bullying and harassment of volunteers. “The complaints included descriptions of alleged assaults on women as well as claims of rulebreaking, and aggressive self-entitled behaviour. “In April, Gibson briefed the press, saying an investigation had been concluded and that the allegations were found to be ‘categorically untrue’. “If that is correct, then why has the party not confirmed the claim, and also informed all the whistleblowers? “My message for Nicola Sturgeon is – read the stories of the Ayrshire activists who provided the SNP with statements.

The statements are understood to have been passed to the SNP for further investigation, but the alleged victims have had no further response. In the meantime Gibson has been appointed convener of Holyrood’s finance and public administration committee. His nomination would have required the green light from party leadership. Gibson said last night: “This is a wholly invented tale from Mr Kerr. His increasingly desperate attacks on me and many others across the party have no basis in fact.” The SNP did not respond to a request for comment.

An archaeologist has warned that numerous structures dating back hundreds of years will be destroyed if planning permission is granted for Europark in Lanarkshire. We revealed four years ago that ex-Rangers and Scotland star Souness and his son Fraser had teamed up with members of the wealthy Gillespie mining dynasty to develop the site, close to Airdrie and the M8. Their firm – Orchard Brae Limited – wanted to build 2600 homes on land owned by daughters of the late Tory H o m e Secretary W i l l i e Whitelaw. Former Souness the Meddle Ages BIG PLANS Former Gers star Souness and site, above archaeologist against multi-million site Rangers player manager Souness, 68, is a significant shareholder in the company, while Fraser, 40, is a director. The development stalled after widespread opposition from local people, furious at the loss of greenbelt land. Now the proposals have been revised and the developers say they are confident they will win over the objectors. Orchard Brae promises a £364million investment, creating 789 jobs and another 4290 during the construction phase. But, in a written submission to North Lanarkshire Council, archaeology adviser Dr Murray Cook urged the authority to reject the planning application pending possible excavation work on the site. He stated: “A cursory review of the available historic maps reveals a wealth of remains, including farmsteads, many of which may have medieval remains of potentially national significance. “There are also 19th century mining remains that form a key aspect of the area’s history, and the former designed landscape for Woodhall House. “These are significant and numerous remains, all of which would be destroyed by the proposed development.” Central Scotland MSP Richard Leonard called for the expert’s claim to be probed. He said: “This must be investigated and the plans halted.” Since the planning application was submitted in 2018, the council has received almost 900 comments from the general public. However, there is significant backing from people who welcome the economic spin-offs it would bring.

16 Sunday Mail november 28, 2021 email Sunday Mail opinion Learn from the past.. no matter how long ago Scottish Child Abuse inquiry chair Lady Smith has concluded that children living in the Smyllum park orphanage in Lanark were subjected to despicable physical, mental and sexual abuse. The home, which was run by nuns, shut its doors more than 40 years ago and most of the former residents are approaching pension age, or are sadly no longer alive. Should we therefore turn our backs on its nightmarish past and move on? The answer must be a resounding no. Despite the passing of time, the spectre of Smyllum – and other accused care institutes – still haunts surviving former residents and their families. The black and white picture of Patricia Meenan, who died at the age of 12 in 1969, might hark back to a bygone era. But questions surrounding her death still haunt her family half a century later. Today, we reveal how another former resident who was homed with Patricia has begun legal action against the religious order who ran the home. She hopes – after decades of trying – now is the time to finally get justice. It is in everyone’s interests that she gets it, and as a society we owe it to those who suffered in silence to hear them now. It would be folly to believe atrocities like these could never happen again in Scotland. The only way to reduce the risk is to learn from the past and hold those individuals and institutions responsible to account, no matter how long has past. Shame of the SNP Malcolm kerr has been in the Snp for 54 years but has concluded he would be “ashamed and embarrassed” to make it 55. The 68-year-old doctor, a former Holyrood candidate and party official, believes complaints over the alleged conduct of Cunninghame North MSP Kenneth Gibson have been ignored by Nicola Sturgeon. He is clearly not alone in feeling that the party’s leadership has lost touch with the rank and file activists who put them in ministerial jobs.

web Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 17 A Tale of Two Wee Grannies. Mavis was married to Bert and they had two children and three grandchildren. Bert died a few years back and Mavis lived on in the family home, a nice little three-bedroom semi in Surrey, just outside London. Irene was married to Ted. They had two children and three grandchildren too. Ted also died a while ago, bequeathing Irene his pension and their three-bedroom semi in Hull, in the north-east of England. A few years after their husbands died, Mavis and Irene both suffered from bad strokes and neither of them was able to look after themselves any more. They had to be taken into care. Because Mavis and Bert had bought their house back in the 1970s, for just £12,000, there was no mortgage left on it. Irene’s care had cost every penny of the equity in her house And because it was within an hour of London, it was now worth £700,000. Irene and Ted bought their ex-council house in the 1980s, under Thatcher’s right-tobuy scheme. It had only cost them £6000. They had long paid off their mortgage too and their property was now worth just over £100,000. Mavis and Irene both spent the last two years of their lives in care homes and passed away around the same time. So far, two very similar families having very similar life experiences at opposite ends of England. Then it all changed. Mavis’s care in the home had cost £860 a week. So it took around two years for her to hit the £86,000 cap mandated in the Government’s new Health and Social Care bill. She also had to pay an additional £250 a week towards living costs like rent, food and utilities. This meant bills of another £1000 a month, or £24,000 for the last two years of her life. Mavis’s total care bill at the time of her death eventually came to £110,000. Amazingly, this was the same total for Irene, who died the same week as Mavis. Even after the cost of her care, when Mavis’s family home was sold, she was able to leave her children nearly £300,000 each. In turn, her children passed most of this on to their children, Mavis’s grandchildren, giving them enough money towards the deposits they needed to buy flats of their own within a short commute of London. Up north, a few hours up the eastern coast, things weren’t quite so rosy. Irene’s care had cost every penny of the equity in her house. But there was a bright spot – the final £20,000 of her money was government protected! Once the funeral costs had all been covered, Killer Kyle Rittenhouse is the type of right-wing hero America deserves Every country gets the heroes it deserves, it seems. A couple of weeks back a jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of shooting two people dead in the protests that followed in the wake of ToUgh Care bills take toll on the elderly Two lives, two families, two familiar stories.. but one big difference that shows how the damage caused by Tory policies passes down the generations George Floyd’s death. Oh, he shot them all right but it was in self-defence. This being America, the jury seemed to find it understandable that a teenager had shown up to a protest with a fully loaded machine gun he was too young to legally own. In any sane country you’d have expected Rittenhouse to do what after the verdict? Lay low, maybe? Be contrite? Vanish from sight completely? But this is America – so there he was on Tucker Carlson’s talk show. There he was with Republican members of Congress falling over themselves to offer him jobs as an intern. And, finally, there he was at Mar-a-Lago, grinning from ear to ear as he gave it the thumbs-up with Donald Trump, the ultimate sign that the killer of two had been fully embraced as the right-wing hero the country deserved. Of course they deserve him. It’s America. RighT-To-bUy sCheMe Margaret Thatcher. Left, Jeremy Corbyn Irene’s children were left with around £7500 each. One of them bought a second-hand car. The other took the family on a nice holiday to Florida. Both grannies had worked hard and played by the rules. Because of a geographical quirk of birthplace, one set of grandchildren were able to continue a cycle of wealth and property owning. The others? Not so much. However, there was one other similarity between Mavis and Irene… Mavis had voted Conservative all her life because that was what you did in Surrey. Irene had been a Labour voter when she was a young girl because that was what you did in the north. But, as Ted had explained to her before he died, “at the end of the day”, it was “that Mrs Thatcher” who made it possible for them to own their own home. To have a real asset to leave to their children and their grandchildren. So that they could have a better start in life than they’d had. Because that was what it was all about, really, wasn’t it? It took Irene a while – she’d quite liked that Tony Blair and everything – but eventually, because of all the immigration and the EU red tape and that awful Jeremy Corbyn and everything else, she started voting Conservative too. Just like Mavis had always done, a few hundred miles to the south of her. But it wasn’t the immigrants who took away the tiny bit of inheritance she’d hoped to leave her family. It wasn’t the EU or Jeremy Corbyn either. It was the very people who she voted for. Poor Irene. TRUMP CARD Kyle Rittenhouse

Figures show 25 complaints were lodged with the force during the 25-day conference. The 25 complaints were revealed during a meeting of the Scottish Police Authority. Kelvingrove Park on November 6 was a flashpoint, with police criticised for “kettling”, or cordoning in, protesters. Green MSPs Ross Greer and Maggie Chapman complained. A spokesman for Extinction Rebellion said policing was over the top. He said: “Police tactics suffocated peaceful protest.” Cops revealed there had been only 97 arrests over the summit. Police Scotland’s Assistant Chief Constable Gary Ritchie said: “To have only 25 complaints is testament to the professionalism and hard work of Police Scotland and mutual aid officers.” Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 19 covid helps cops keep tabs oN crime bosses GANGDEMIC ■ Norman Silvester Hundreds of criminals were added to the number of alerts warned by police during issued across Scotland.

web baby’s eye defeCt led to devastatINg dIagNosIs Children like our Jessica must get help in days.. not wait for months Call for brain tumour MRI fast-tracks ■ Norman Silvester The parents of a baby girl who might only have weeks to live have told how an unusual eye movement turned out to be a brain tumour. Jessica Gibson’s mum and dad are now calling for children with similar symptoms to be fast-tracked for an MRI scan after she was initially given a four-month wait. In July she was diagnosed with pilocytic astrocytoma – a tumour of the brain and spinal cord – when only four months old. Jessica has endured five operations, three types of chemotherapy and spent lengthy spells in hospital. On November 10 doctors decided she was too weak for any more surgery or chemotherapy and was sent home from hospital in an ambulance for palliative care. It was then the family, who live in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, were told she may only have weeks to live. Mum Gillian Allum, 36, and dad Andrew Gibson, 49, first became concerned when Jessica’s right eye began moving rapidly from side to side. An initial GP referral to the brave Jessica fights for her life hospital led to a three or four-month wait for an MRI scan but soon after Jessica’s weight started to drop and she was admitted to Wishaw General Hospital in Lanarkshire on July 29. Following an emergency MRI scan at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow, her parents were told there was a large mass in Jessica’s brain and smaller tumours in her spine. She then went through three major operations in the space of a week and also began chemotherapy. Andrew, who is an operations manager, said Jessica would be dead now if they had waited four months for an MRI scan. He would like to see the NHS prioritise children showing signs of brain tumours. He added: “The MRI scans really need to take place within days rather than months.” Gillian, a business development manager, said: “We need to do more for children who present symptoms like Jessica’s and get their treatment fast-tracked. If the worst-case scenario happens to our daughter, I want to make sure no other family go through this.” Jessica’s parents are doing everything they can to get her better, including the use of approved herbal remedies and treatments. They are also speaking with a private consultant in Thailand who specialises in natural medicine. A Just Giving site has been set up to raise £50,000 to support the family and pay for any possible future private procedures. One possibility is cell therapy treatment in a private London clinic, which could cost between £8000 and £25,000.

The 20-year-old student, from Dunblane, can solve a Rubik’s cube in under five seconds and is in the running to be crowned world champion next month at the Red Bull World Cup. From the moment he picked up the puzzle aged eight, Adam committed himself to becoming the fastest speed cuber on the planet and he’s getting closer to his goal every day. It took him more than an hour to solve his first cube but, after years of daily practice and studying online methods and algorithms, he has got his personal best time down to a jaw-dropping 4.46 seconds. Adam, who is a former Young Magician of the Year, is now limbering up to take on the best in the world, including reigning champion Max Park – star of Netflix documentary The Speed Cubers.

Then I thought, ‘I’ll give it a go,’ and I did. It took me more than an hour but I wanted to be faster. “I started watching videos and was soon able to do it in less than five minutes. “I just kept going and have been dropping my times and solving cubes every day since. It’s rare to see me without a cube in my hand.” Adam, who is a member of the magic circle, added: “I used to try to get my times down by trying to cube solve between tube stops.

Nichola Petermann was 26 when she learned she had Hodgkin lymphoma and needed immediate treatment – forcing her to leave her dream TV job months after she started. Medics thought her fever, abdominal pain and night sweats were a result of her getting Covid in January. But as her illness got worse, she took painkillers six times a day in order to continue her day-to-day life. In the absence of answers, Nichola, from Glasgow, repeatedly sought medical OrdEAL Nichola attention but the likelihood of it being long Covid masked the advanced stage her cancer had reached. When she was finally diagnosed, her condition was so advanced she had to start chemo the next day – forcing her to leave her job. Nichola said: “I did think it was long Covid. I had no idea how serious it was. Because it was harder to see GPs, it was really hard. “I treated it myself with pain relief but eventually it got to the point where I couldn’t handle it any more.” When the pain became too much, she contacted NHS 24 and ultrasound finally showed she’d cancer. Nichola said: “As soon as it was diagnosed they realised how serious it was.” She spent 10 weeks in Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow and was discharged in August. A month later, Nichola was told she was in remission but still suffers from fatigue and struggles to walk long distances. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said: “We are sorry to hear of this woman’s concerns, and we will look into her case.” £19.99 was £39.99 HoMedics Neck Massager £48.99 was £84.99 Star Wars Animatronic Baby Yoda from £174.50 was from £349.00 Simba Refurbished Mattress Selected Black Friday inventory only.

web Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 29 Top goal for sterling city HOT Stirling is the happiest place to live in Scotland. The locals are more content than anywhere else in the country. It came sixth in the UK, 70 whole places ahead of Edinburgh. Did that come down to a straightforward ‘Battle of the Castles’ because Stirling’s is much more interesting than Edinburgh’s plus it’s got a fab tea room. Or maybe the Stirling folk are just so happy now that the statue of William Wallace that looks a lot like Mel Gibson has been moved to Brechin City football club where they’re less likely to see it? Stirling is, of course, the only Scottish entrant still in the running for UK City of Culture 2025, so there’s no denying its star is in the ascendant. Maybe another Hollywood movie about a famous native would seal the deal: Braveheart 2 – The Billy Bremner Story. Brit awards on wrong track NOT Gender-neutral Brits. I’m not singing from this songsheet. Give us the girls back. Ditching the separate “male” and “female” categories from the Brit awards in the name of “inclusion” does the opposite. It actually excludes women, who’ve been battling for donkey’s years in a music industry that’s so male dominated that, in the past decade, Glastonbury has only had two solo female headliners: Beyonce and Adele. Only three per cent of the top 100 music producers are women. Separate Brit awards gave women a chance to step out of male shadows, instant recognition for performers and invaluable encouragement for new acts. Pop star Sam Smith, pictured, whoidentifies as non-binary, pushed for the change but it’s a poor show to advance your own agenda bydenigrating the long-foughtforrights of others. Come on, Brits... bring in different voices but don’t let females be drowned out. Oopsie... Nicola Sturgeon fell on her bahookie at a boxing ring photocall with Tory boss Douglas Ross. Rarely seen without her three inch stilettos, she took them off for the shot, then took a tumble right in front of her nemesis. Did she feel a chump? No – she never touched Dougie. Silly little boys’ club in the mother of all parliaments Tragic What was left of dinghy sTuck Madonna Madonna finds herself in a tights spot again... Madonna’s getting stick for her latest Insta pics. That’s unfair. It’s happened to us all… you’re trying to get dressed, the dog steals your bra and hides under the bed. So you crawl under and swear at it till the mutt lets go. Then it’s quite tricky to get back out again. And everyone in the family thinks it’s hilarious to take pictures of your plight. Bet you one of Madge’s kids was shouting: “Drag her out by her ankles, the silly old goat.” Or is that just my house? UK and France must unite to beat people-smuggling gangs It’s unbearable to look now at the images of those families carrying an inflatable dinghy towards the English Channel, a flimsy craft that’ll never withstand late November wind and waves. That French police watched them go without A very strange thing happened at the start of last week. We all went to sleep in the 21st century on Monday but woke up in the 1950s: a young Princess Elizabeth had ascended to the throne; Winston Churchill was PM and Enigma code genius Alan Turing had undergone chemical castration for admitting a homosexual relationship. One in five married women had jobs so most little ladies were busy at home, keeping the place nice, the kids quiet and their men fed. Consequently, only 2.7 per cent of MPs were female and the House of Commons was a cosy boys’ club. If someone turned up at Westminster with a baby in tow, the old duffers would have coronaries and the poor infant would be packed off to a nanny until it was old enough to pack off to boarding school. Yes, our eyes opened on exactly such enlightened times on Tuesday. How else can we explain the rebuking of Labour MP Stella Creasy for her audacity in taking her 13-week-old baby into what is laughably referred to as the “Mother of all Parliaments”? Tragically, there are still too many old duffers in there who’d love to turn the clock back to a time when bothersome women were only allowed in to clean the place and kids could be shoved up chimneys. The MP’s little boy is being breastfed and has to be close to his mother. And MPs must be physically present in the chamber in order to represent their constituents during debates. Female MPs are not entitled to the same maternity rights as us ordinary workers, because the parliamentary system is still stacked so heavily against working mothers. There’s no arrangement for maternity cover. Taking all these factors into account, it’s actually to Creasy’s credit that she strapped on a baby sling and took little Pip into the debating chamber. It was the only way she could represent her constituents. The MP for Walthamstow in East London was leading a debate on regulating “buy now, pay intervening is an affront to humanity. That our Home Secretary Priti Patel spends every waking moment devising ways to stop desperate folk safely reaching these shores is shameful beyond comprehension. It is the biggest single loss of life in the Channel DEBaTE Stella Creasy with baby in parliament since monitoring of migrant crossings began. Even while offering condolences, Patel carps that it’s the “starkest possible reminder” about the ruthless criminals who are making fortunes from these souls. Working together, France and Britain could easily later” consumer credit schemes, an important issue she has championed for some time and on which the Government has dragged its heels. The MP has previously – and successfully – campaigned against the scourge of payday lenders like Wonga. She now fervently believes young people risk taking on a mountain of debt they can’t afford to pay back – particularly in the run-up to Christmas. Now Creasy is no fool. She’s making a point. She’s part of the This Mum Votes campaign to get more women into politics, she’s fought for maternity rights for MPs and admits she rather enjoys making her judgemental counterparts look her child in the eye while pushing through an important cause. That’ll be ill-informed bozos like Tory MP for Blackpool South, Scott Benton, who asked her: “Parents who get paid a fraction of what you do pay for childcare and juggle responsibilities so they can go to work. What makes you so special?’ Call me naive but isn’t democratic representation of the people a very special job? Don’t MPs have a “special” opportunity to increase visibility and challenge outdated norms? Frankly, they could strap their sleeping granny or pet pug in a sling and take them into the debating chamber if it meant they’d do a better job. We have a PM who waffles about Peppa Pig. Creasy’s baby would make a more worthwhile contribution. Instead, she received a Dickensian ticking-off and was directed to the rules on expected “behaviour and courtesies” of MPs: “We’ve been made aware that you were accompanied by your baby in Westminster Hall earlier today.” How very dare she? So they struggle to enforce rules on face masks or taking payments from lobbyists or earning fortunes from second jobs but they can quickly clamp down on a woman who takes her infant to a debate. Is that a second job too far? Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle has ordered a review of the rules. Yawn, yawn. Wakey, wakey, Westminster. This is 2021.

Big-hearted cover band Soap have been making a splash and cleaning up for charity with their annual Stay Fresh music festival. The Dunoon trio, who have been best pals since school, have raised more than £13,000 to help worthy causes in the seaside town where they were born and raised. Singer Kenny McLay, 22, drummer Callum Newall, 23, and guitarist Lewis McCorquodale, 21, set up the festival in 2018 as a way of giving back to the community who have supported them. Stay Fresh Fest 2021 took place earlier this month at The Queen’s Hall in Dunoon and was headlined by Renfrew band Big Vern n The Shootaghs. The Soap boys, who have also taken part in dozens of other charity fundraisers, are now in the running for a Sunday Mail Young Scot Award in the community category. Frontman Kenny, who also works in his mum’s DIY shop, said: “We were all raised here in Dunoon and we like to give back to the town that has given so much to us. It’s a great and close-knit community and folk look out for each other. “People have always been good at coming to see us play and the charity festival is a way of supporting the local causes that are making a difference to people’s lives. At the end of the day, we are just three guys who love playing music and are using our talent to do something good while having lots of fun.” Kenny, who also plays rhythm guitar in the band which he helped to create five years ago, added: “The last Stay Fresh Fest took place a couple of weeks ago and we raised more than £5000, which we will split between three local charities and national charity Macmillan Cancer Support. “We kickstarted this year’s campaign by scaling Ben Nevis in September, which brought in £500 before we even began. “We choose different charities every year so no one misses out. We aim to give them each £1000 and any money left over we use to buy Christmas gifts for Dunoon care home residents. “The festival is also a great way of showcasing local talent and giving them an opportunity to perform on a proper stage instead of in the back corner of a pub.” Soap, who perform a mix of rock, pop, folk and country covers, also did a set at the Cash for Kids 2018 lunch at Ayr Racecourse, which raised more than £84,000, and took part in a fundraiser for the fisherman who died in the Nancy Glen disaster. Earlier this year the group played at a musical alternative to the cancelled Cowal Highland Gathering and donated half their fees to three businesses that had been destroyed in an arson attack. Kenny, who teamed up with baker Callum and graphic artist Lewis while they were pupils at Dunoon High School, is delighted the band’s good work has been recognised with a Young Scot nomination. He said: “It was a Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 31 Cover band nominated for charity work ■ Heather Greenaway surprise to be nominated but we are delighted, if only to boost the profile of Stay Fresh as the more people who come to see us, the more we can donate to local charities.” Today we continue our search for the stars of 2022, the nation’s young heroes aged 11 to 26 who are making a difference.

web setback for surViVors of resideNtial scHool Compo blow just belittles abuse we all suffered battle Marion Reid Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 33 Hydro high in the Highlands The largest communityowned hydro-power project in the UK has been launched in the Highlands. Financial Secretary Kate Forbes opened the Barr River scheme, near Lochaline in Morvern, on Friday. Homes where the hearth is An archaeological dig has revealed roundhouses and a rare, 3000-year-old metalworking hearth. The finds were made in advance of a housing development being built in Rattray, Perthshire. house of horrors The Fornethy Residential School in Angus Victim hits out at decision Women who say they were beaten and sexually assaulted at a girls’ school have hit out after being told they won’t get money from a new compensation scheme. Survivors from Fornethy Residential School have been told they don’t qualify under the taxpayer-funded Redress Scheme, expected to start handing out money later this year. Marion Reid, 63, a co-founder of the group who said she was abused there in 1965, said it was “a bitter blow”. She said: “It belittles the abuse many of us suffered. It’s like the Scottish Government are saying, ‘Yes, you were abused but you weren’t abused long enough.’ “Many of the women in the group might only have suffered six weeks’ abuse – physical and in some cases sexual – but the long-term effects has lasted their entire lifetimes. “For years we have felt ignored by the authorities. And this just reinforces that. There are around 200 in our group – 200 women aren’t lying.” A Scottish Government official wrote to the Group to say: “Whilst the abuse suffered in all circumstances and settings is wrong and harmful, the exclusion of those abused in short-term respite or holiday care is in keeping with the core purposes of the redress scheme, which is primarily for those vulnerable children who were in long-term care, often isolated with limited or no contact with their families.” Last year we told how 40 women had bravely come forward to reveal the abuse they suffered at Fornethy. Schoolgirls were sent to the rural school to recover from illness and given promises it was like a holiday camp. But in reality they were subjected to brutal beatings and under-age sex attacks by staff. Glasgow City Council ran the home between 1961 and 1993 after being gifted the mansion in Angus in 1955.. Thompsons Solicitors has launched a 130-strong action against the authority. Abuse survivors who aren’t awarded compensation via Redress Scot- land are still able to pursue their own claim through the civil courts. But a time-bar limit on how long ago the abuse happened only applies after 1964. June Doherty, 66, went to Fornethy House in 1961. She said: “It was a hor- rible place. I was force-fed there but escaped lightly compared to other girls. I witnessed some being phys- ically battered. The fact these women are not going to be able to go after compensation for the abuse they suffered is shameful.” Redress Scotland, set up in March, will pay out up to £100,000 to victims. Laura Connor, of Thompson Solicitors said: “We continue to urge the Scottish Government to ensure that all in care survivors are allowed to access compensation through the Redress scheme. A Scottish Government spokesman said: “Redress Scotland will consider all the facts and circumstances of each applicant’s case before reaching a decision.” Ethnic minority nature jobs bid A project has been launched aiming to increase diversity in nature-based jobs. The salaried placements will be offered by Scottish Government agency NatureScot in which young people will gain experience, with a range of jobs and career paths available. CEMVO Scotland and NatureScot have set up the Ethnicity in Nature scheme, which will provide four mentored placements for minority ethnic people aged 18-29. NatureScot said: “Our ■ Gordon Blackstock research identified barriers to minority communities entering the sector. “Through this project, we want to begin to break these barriers down, engaging with people who may not have thought of a career in nature-based sectors.” BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL OFFER FOR JUST £1 P/WEEK FOR THE NEXT 8 WEEKS PROMO CODE: BF2021 OR CALL US ON 0345 149 4848 Vouchers to claim at your newsagent Terms and conditions: Offer open to new customers only and ends on Tuesday November 30, 2021.

Isles homes get go-ahead Plans to build 353 socially rented and low-cost homes on Orkney have been backed by the council. But opponents warned the five-year plan will “urbanise” the islands. BOOK Graham Yuill WIN target Skripal. Above, from top, Mishkin, Chepiga and Dawn Sturgess A terrorism expert has claimed a second secret gang of spooks was behind the novichok poison attack on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal. Glaswegian Graham Yuill said the team planted a contaminated perfume bottle to confuse police. Yuill spoke out after the UK Government last week announced a public inquiry will be held next year into the death of Dawn Sturgess, 44. She died after spraying perfume from a bottle found by her partner, 45-year-old Charlie Rowley. Rowley claims to have found the bottle in a charity shop bin in Salisbury in June 2018 – three months after the attack on Skripal, who had been working for Britain. Their poisoning followed the attempted murder of Skripal, 70, his daughter and police officer Nick Bailey. They survived, as did Rowley. Police claim the perfume was part of the same deadly Novichok batch used on the Skripals. Yuill has written a book on the attack called Putin’s Assassin. In it, he says it w a s a ■■Norman Silvester separate sample left weeks later by the second spy gang who sneaked into the UK under the noses of the security services. Yuill, who worked as a close protection officer in Northern Ireland during The Troubles, said: “It was beautifully planned. The bottle of perfume that Rowley found would have been introduced later after Skripal was poisoned. “It was meant to be found as part of an operation by the second Russian team to confuse the police.” Yuill believes the perfume bottle was brought in and planted by the second gang in the bin after the area had been searched and cleared of further contamination. He added: “The bottle found by Rowley was almost full, cellophane sealed and professionally packaged – proof it had not been reopened or tampered with after it had been laced with Novichok. There is no evidence to suggest that this was the actual bottle used against the Skripals.” The Skripal attack was blamed on Russian spies who were believed to have smeared Novichok on the door handle of his Salisbury home. The Met Police has identified three suspects – Denis Sergeev, Alexander Mishkin and Anatoliy Chepiga. Moscow has repeatedly denied involvement. Two up for grabs!

web Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 39 Slump in UK car production Car production in the UK has tumbled to its worst level since October 1956. Latest figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders highlights a 41.4 per cent slump last month as the industry continues to reel from the global shortage of semi-conductors and the closure of Honda’s Swindon plant in July. Only 64,729 vehicles were produced, with more than eight in 10 cars shipped abroad. On a more positive note, almost a third of all cars made in the UK were alternatively fuelled. BLUE-SKY THINKING Volvo C40 Recharge Used Audi A3 is tops for families The Audi A3 Sportback has been named the UK’s favourite used family car. It beat motors from Honda, Fiat, BMW and Volkswagen to take the top spot following a survey of more than 2000 parents with children under 16. The research – carried out by CarGurus – was based on a budget of £15,500 and looked at practicality, running costs and fuel efficiency. When it comes to the type of car parents want, they are most likely to opt for a hatchback or SUV. A 2017 Audi A3 five-door Sportback with 30,000 to 40,000 miles on the clock, and a 1.0-litre petrol engine returning 50mpg, cost on average £15,000. Leading the way for dog road trips Mini, whose charity partner is Dogs Trust, has released advice for those who may be travelling long distances this festive season with their pet. One in three households in the UK has a dog in residence but not everyone is confident about taking them in the car. Experts from the Trust suggest letting your dog get acquainted with the car and its smells by just opening the doors and letting them sniff. Take it slowly and go on fun outings first, always watching for signs of distress. Consider whether you want to secure them with a harness or in a crate.

By 2025 it expects sales to be 50 per cent hybrid and 50 per cent electric, by 2030 its new fleet will be all-electric and at the same time leather free. And as if to underline the heights to which it aspires, the dash on its new all-electric C40 illustrates the topography of Sweden’s Abisko National Park. Different layers of textile are backlit to describe the peaks and dips of the area in the north of the country – a region teeming with wildlife and spectacular scenery. The C40 is the company’s first dedicated electric vehicle, a crossover in a new elegant design with a panoramic roof to emphasise space and airiness. The launch colour is Fjord Blue – one of those sophisticated Volvo colours – with a contrasting black roof and a Fjord Blue interior. The car is higher than a saloon but lower than an SUV with a coupe roof TECH SPEC Model Volvo C40 Recharge Twin Pro Engine Two 204hp electric motors on the front and rear axles Power 408hp Top speed 112mph 0-62 4.7 seconds Range 261 miles CO2 Zero Warranty Three years/ 60,000 miles Price £57,400 and rear spoiler. It also has almost a second spoiler at the rear of the roof, with a hatch in the middle to enhance aerodynamics – and boy does this car show off its dynamism. But first the wonderful taillights. They throw the most distinctive signature out there. The curve that we have come to know and love at the rear of a Volvo has changed. This time because the coupe designers have pulled back from creating one long light and instead have put in a series of dashes that is going to become uniquely Volvo. There will be three trim levels but the first at launch will be the top-of-therange Recharge (Volvo’s name for their electric range) Twin Pro. This is an all-wheel-drive car with an electric motor on both the front and rear axle and off-road mode for when the going gets tough. And here’s the thing – you don’t even need to start the engine. Just walk up to it with the key, sit down, put the car into gear and you move silently away. Like all electric cars, the power is instant but, in this car in particular, it just keeps on giving. With 408hp from the two electric motors and a 0-62mph time of 4.7 seconds, you can’t go wrong. This car is willing, able and very Volvo. The new Google-assisted infotainment system is as easy to use as your normal hand-held device and you switch easily from one bit of software to another. Volvo will also send updates down the line to your car, meaning the vehicle just gets better every day. The C4 Recharge is packed with safety features and driver aids, like the one-pedal driving you can opt for where you use only the gas pedal to accelerate and brake, feathering it lightly and at the same time regenerating power. Volvo is particularly proud of its finance package, which you can take for as little as three months at a time – not tieing you into long and costly deals. But, for me, the wonder of this car was the performance. Silent and plush inside, it leapt out like an elite athlete once on the road. It was well balanced and smooth with terrific cornering ability – and the best of it is that this is only the first car in a series of electric vehicles created by Volvo. Recharge is on a charge.

web SportSfile Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 49 Czech out Cam & co tenniS Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans enjoyed a perfect start to their Davis Cup Finals bid as Great Britain stormed past France. The Brits will be sure to qualify as group winners if they beat the Czechs today to send them into a quarter-final on Tuesday. With no crowd due to Austria’s lockdown, Evans saw off Adrian Mannarino 7-5 6-4 before Norrie beat Arthur Rinderknech 6-2 7-6. Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski lost the doubles in straight sets but the tie was already settled. Scot Norrie, who now sits at world No.12, said: “To beat a player of his calibre was massive. I managed to do enough.” A Swede success CUrlinG Eve Muirhead took her third European title in style as Scotland smashed Olympic champs Sweden. The 2013 world champ and team-mates Hailey Duff, Jennifer Dodds and Vicky Wright sealed a 7-4 win in Lillehammer. Dedicating it to Duff and alternate Mili Smith in their first major champs, she said: “I never thought I’d do this again. It’s been a tough year and I’ve been through a lot with my hip surgery (in 2018). It’s been bit of a rollercoaster with forming the new team this season but this result shows it has worked. Team Muirhead’s next task is to book their place at the Winter Olympics in next month’s qualifiers. Rocket to aim high SportS loG Ronnie O’Sullivan wants to get all he can out of snooker before he retires. The Rocket saw off world No.68 Robbie Williams 6-2 to keep his bid for a record eighth UK Championship crown alive in York. The 46-year-old said: “I’m never going to be as good at anything else as I am at snooker, so I’m going to try and rinse it for as long as I can.” Former world finalist Kyren Wilson hammered Welshman Jak Jones 6-0. Andy Butchart, Megan ■ Keith, Hamish Armitt and Eloise Walker booked their places at next month’s European cross-country championships in Dublin after yesterday’s trials. CATCH 22 Wilson rues Warriors’ discipline in last-gasp loss Danny Wilson says Glasgow got what they deserved after a spate of “ridiculous penalties” wasted a lead with a minute left. Warriors enjoyed a twopoint cushion in their United Rugby Championship clash and were in control of the ball inside Benetton’s 22. But Wilson’s troops gave away three soft penalties, allowing the Italians to march the length of the pitch. The last of those was for pulling down a player at a line-out, which left stand-off Leonardo Marin with a tricky shot at goal. However, the 19-year-old held his nerve to fire home the points – just as he did in similar circumstances to put Edinburgh to the sword at the start of October. Head coach Wilson said: “Due to terrible discipline we spent the whole of the Benetton .........19 Glasgow ...........18 ■ David Barnes second half inside our own 22. The effort is there, it is excellent. There was lot of doggedness to hold on and not cave on our own try line. But the number of penalties we gave away to put ourselves in a position to lose that game isn’t good enough. “With a minute-and-a-half to go, we manage to go from their try line and give away a penalty for a contact area infringement, a penalty for a high tackle and a penalty for throwing ourselves across the lineout. “They are just ridiculous penalties, which have handed them the game if I am being honest with you. We have to learn our lessons because our discipline here has massively let us down. “From a position to win the game, we end up losing, so we probably deserved what we got.” Warriors got off to a poor start when they failed to chase down George Horne’s clearance kick and allowed full-back Rhyno Smith to score the opening try after just 35 seconds. But they recovered with a try from No.8 Jack Dempsey before taking the lead thanks to a Ross Thompson penalty. The match then swung back towards the home side Blair’s awesome Argies Three tries in the first half from their new Argentinian duo helped Edinburgh make it four wins out of six in the URC. Full-back Emiliano Boffelli scored just two minutes into his debut and winger Ramiro Moyano added two more tries for Mike Blair’s men at Rodney Parade. But the Dragons scored two tries of their own through Sam Davies and Jonah Holmes and were only behind 14-17 at half-time. After the break Blair Dragons......14 edinburgh..30 Kinghorn slotted in two penalties to put his side nine points clear. Kinghorn added another conversion with the last kick of the game after Damien Hoyland crossed for the bonus-point try. Edinburgh boss Blair hailed Boffelli and Moyano, saying: “The pair of them were outstanding and deserved their tries. There’s more to come from Emiliano.” Home of Golf where Bob’s heart is Bob MacIntyre will sit down this week to plot the 2022 plan that can help him take the next steps in his career. But of all the dates, one will stand out – Thursday, July 14. That’s the day MacIntyre will fulfil a boyhood dream and tee it up in The Open at St Andrews. The 25-year-old has booked his ticket to all four Majors again, Golf albeit the 150th anniversary Open at the Home of Golf stands alone on his calendar. A big team meeting to decide goals for the year lies in store but MacIntyre said: “If I could only have played one Open, it would be The Open at St Andrews. The buzz and the atmosphere of being a Scot playing an Open Championship on home soil is where we all want to be. “Getting to do that is something I have dreamed of. But I’m not just going there for the sake of playing – I’m going to compete. “I’ll be going off the position of two good finishes in my first two Opens, so I know what to expect, I know the atmosphere PAYING PENALTY Warriors are left gutted at end despite Dempsey’s try (inset) to expect. I’ll go there with all intentions to win. “There is a lot I still need to learn, even though I’ve played it (the Old Course) so many times.” Thriston Lawrence won his first DP World Tour title after the third and final rounds of the Covid-19 and weather-affected Joburg Open were abandoned. Craig Swan when flanker Giovanni Pettinelli rumbled over for their second try. Warriors ended the half on top, though, after Rory Darge scored from a lineout and Thompson converted to make it 15-13 to Glasgow at the break. A second Thompson penalty stretched their lead early in the second half but they couldn’t build on that. Marin then kicked three more points to bring it back to a two-point game with 17 minutes left to play. It looked like Warriors would hold on before that dramatic collapse. Wilson added: “When we look back, we will look at the individuals who gave away the penalties. “There are two types of penalty – there are dumb ones and ones when you take a gamble that doesn’t pay off. “It is the dumb penalties we need to stop giving away.” MACINTYRE excited

ESKYLANE (3.10) was a smart winner of a handicap hurdle at Down Royal and he can defy a stiff hike. ADRIMEL (12.45) has a very interesting profile for the novice chase at Carlisle. Tom Lacey’s horse was aimed high over timber but he can hit back down in class. THE COB (2.20) can boost Ben Pauling’s excellent record in Cumbria. The gelding was never competitive in the Albert Bartlett at the Festival but this is far easier so he can score if fully tuned-up. TASHUNKA (3.30) was an eye-catching fourth at Exeter and she can build on that run for Fergal O’Brien at Leicester. stepped forward a long way on chase debut when winning a good race at Down Royal. The way this one attacked the obstacles was very impressive and enjoyable to witness. Lifetime Ambition had several of his rivals well behind so he should go in again under Sean O’Keefe. Elliott can bag the Royal Bond Novices’ Hu rd le w it h THREE STRIPE LIFE (1.05) . Fourth behind Sir Gerhard in the Champion Bumper, this one won a strong event on his timber debut at this track 26 days ago. Mighty Poiter has also been the subject of some nice words from Elliott but Three Honeysuckle (2.40) is the star turn on a stunning day at Fairyhouse. The Champion Hurdler gets her season started this afternoon in the Hatton’s Grace. Henry De Bromhead’s star is unbeaten in 12 runs under rules and should keep that record intact in the Grade 1. However, she’s too short to back so I’ll have an each-way interest on Gordon Elliott’s ABRACADABRAS. The high-class gelding won at Aintree last spring before chasing Honeysuckle home at Punchestown. The same can happen here. LIFETIME AMBITION (1.35) can shock Gabynako in an intriguing renewal of the Drinmore Novice Chase. Jessica Harrington’s charge was a moderate hurdler but ■ joe punter Tashunka’s ready to fire in Leicester thriller

52 Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 email Erling nets back in the old routine Erling Haaland scored on his comeback as Borussia Dortmund came back from a goal down to win 3-1 away to Wolfsburg. The Norwegian netted in 81 minutes after coming on as a second-half sub following a hip injury that kept him out since October. Dortmund star Julian Brands said: “We played a good game. Now we have a good full week to prepare for Bayern and we will go into that game with a lot of confidence.” The Wolves took a second-minute lead through a Wout Weghorst header. Borussia levelled with an Emre Can penalty in the 35th. Donyell Malen put the away side in front before Haaland volleyed in EUROPE from close range to become the youngest player to reach 50 Bundesliga goals. Bayern Munich became the first side in Germany to net 102 goals in a calendar year as the leaders beat Armenia Bielefeld 1-0 thanks to Leroy Sane’s 71st-minute counter. In Italy Atalanta beat Juventus 1-0 to record a first victory in Turin since 1989. Duvan Zapata netted the only goal in the 29th minute to lift the Bergamo side to within seven points of the top and heap more pressure on Juve coach Max Allegri. Paulo Dybala came closest to levelling for the home side but his free-kick in stoppage time hit the bar. Brave Bhoys hang on Tommy McIntyre hailed his young squad after Celtic B held out to win 3-2 away to Caledonian Braves. Ben Wylie and Joey Dawson gave the Hoops a 2-0 half-time lead. Marc Kelly pulled one back early in the second half but Tsoanelo Letsosa restored the two-goal advantage for the Hoops LOWLAND before Cameron Breadner’s neat finish past Tobi Oluwayemi set up a thrilling last 15 minutes. McIntyre said: “They were pushing for an equaliser towards the end but we managed the game fairly well and I was pleased with the defence.” GRASSROOTS AWARDS 3 1 2 4 5 6 YOUNG HEART Even health scares can’t stop Port’s Jim When you want support to grow your business, we’ll put an expert team around you.

web 7 8 UNSUNG HEROES Jim, who was given the merit award, as well as all winners on a big night at Hampden Jim Boyland was rather preoccupied with a prize-giving this week but it wasn’t one in which he took centre stage to be honoured at Hampden for more than 40 years in football. No, the 66-year-old couldn’t contain his excitement over the trophy presentation being put on at Parklea for the eight-yearolds at Port Glasgow Boys Club on the eve of his own. “It will be a spectacular night,” he said, giddy at the recognition being meted out to others rather than himself. “I’ve got wee trophies for the mammies for a penalty kick competition. Me and my wife will go down and make rolls, it will be a good laugh. “It’s great to see all the parents involved. They’re like me, they want better for their weans.” Boyland was among the cast of unsung heroes to be recognised at the 18th annual Scottish FA Grassroots Awards, presented by McDonald’s and the Sunday Mail, with former Scotland hero James McFadden among attendees on Friday. Stars who may not have graced the grass at Hampden but without whom no one could. On what a typical week looks like, “every day football, every night football” is the response from Boyland, who took home the merit award having started to take teams at Port Glasgow Youth Club in the 1970s. He’s now chairman of Port Glasgow Boys Club, runs the academy for kids from age four up, volunteers in the local schools having worked in Port High – where he met co-worker, wife and now fellow volunteer Joan – for 35 years while taking the teams, on top of helping out with Port Glasgow Juniors. Jim’s Friday Night McDonald’s Football remains the pride and joy, a “free for all” for kids from five up to 12 to have a game “with a smile on their coupon”. And yet, this time last year Boyland was battling for his life as coronavirus left him in hospital on an oxygen machine, with Joan and son James also having tested positive. Issues with his heart just prior to it had also culminated in time spent in a hospital bed, GRASSROOTS AWARDS 2021 ■ Alan Robertson although keeping him away f rom footba l l wa s never in store. “It all came in the one year and I didn’t like that at all,” said Boyland, chuckling away. “Fitted up with a new pacemaker and a defibrillator, then I took Covid, which didn’t help either. Don’t get me wrong, but for the grace of God anything could have happened. “I was out for about eight, nine months. “I am back into the football every day of the week now. I feel like a new person. “I was being stupid right enough (during my heart issues). I was going down to the park then coming back up and going to sleep. Then I was going back down the next night. I shouldn’t have done it but at the end of the day, I just love my football. I didn’t do much, I just stood about. As long as the weans were enjoying it, I wasn’t caring.” Walking back into the local school earlier this year, his health issues behind him, kids were standing in the corridor waiting to applaud him. Neil McCann and David Hopkin may be well-known names who took their first steps on his watch but this isn’t about creating stars. “The weans should be playing with a smile on their face,” said Boyland, who salutes the coaches he’s surrounded by and volunteer like him. “They might not be great but they will go off that park saying, ‘I enjoyed that.’ That’s all I want. “A lot of people, like your Denis Laws, bring joy to people and I just want to keep that going. I want to give the weans a wee focus in life. “The Friday night is free – it has been for 40-odd years. The weans come and express themselves, all different age groups. “Half the mammies and daddies all came to the same football years ago. I’ve got some of the grand weans now, it makes me feel old! I’m 66 but I will keep going as long as I can on a Friday night. I’m doing what I love and doing it with a smile.” 9 AnD THe WinneRS ARe.... 10 1 Best volunteer in girls’ and women’s football – Sarah Herd 2 Best volunteer in adult football – Danny Cameron 3 Best community football club – Drumchapel United (pictured Scott Bland) 4 Best para-football project – Morton in the Community: Team Talk (pictured Brian McLaughlin and Johnny Roy) 5 Best volunteer in youth football – Joe McCafferty 6 Best young volunteer – Beth Kidd 7 Best professional club in the community – Raith Rovers Foundation (pictured Paul Greig) 8 Best community football for all project – CAMHS Football Project and Falkirk Foundation (pictured Tracey Binnie and Dave Mackay) 9 McDonald’s special recognition – Peter O’Keefe (pictured with James McFadden and Sam Kerr) 10 Merit award – Jim Boyland Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 53 Reborn Brora bouncing back with a bang Craig Campbell applauded born-again Brora Rangers after they climbed to within four points of leaders Fraserburgh. The Dudgeon Park side shot down visiting Deveronvale 4-0 with doubles from Jordan MacRae and Ross County loanee Matthew Wright. It was tough in wintry conditions in Sutherland and Campbell said: “It wasn’t a day for us playing the silkiest football but I was very happy with how the lads dealt with the conditions to secure an important win.” Brora worked hard to break down Vale’s defences and MacRae drew first blood after 17 minutes. Wright added the second eight minutes later to ensure the home side were rewarded for dominance before the break. A 75th minute MacRae strike and another from teenage front JUniORS/WOSFl HiGHlAnD partner Wright five minutes later sealed the win. Elsewhere, a fine 5-0 win at Lossiemouth took Buckie Thistle into second place on goal difference, three points behind Fraserburgh but with an extra game played. Sam Urquhart claimed the first of a double for the visiting Jags after 14 minutes. By the time he added his second on the hour, Callum Murray and Kyle Macleod had also netted. Mark McLauchlan wrapped it up for the away side after 74 minutes. Keith’s Scott Gray netted a fine brace in his side’s 3-1 win at Nairn, while Clach held out for a creditable 0-0 draw at home to Inverurie Locos. Wick Academy’s Ryan Campbell hit a double for the Caithness hosts in a 2-0 win against Forres Mechanics. Petershill...........2 lochee Utd..........1 Skipper Ross McCabe nodded in to complete a Petershill comeback to reach the Scottish Junior Cup last eight. East Region cracks Lochee led through Kevin Buchan only to end up a man down when Calvin Colquhoun got his marching orders for an alleged elbow on Stephen Docherty. Jordan Scott fired Peasy level 10 minutes after the break before McCabe made it a 17-game winning run. Boss Martin Lauchlan said: “The boys deserve immense credit for their performance against a very good side. “We now face Largs away in the quarter finals. It’s one everyone at the club is looking forward too.” Lochee manager George Shields said: “The sending-off totally changed the game and it looked incredibly soft.” neilston...1 Glens...1 (Glens win 5-4 pens) Glencairn squeezed into the Strathclyde Demolition Cup semis after a frantic finale. Fans had to wait until the 81st minute for the first save to be made before Fraser Malcolm headed home for Glens with three minutes left. Ton’s Darren Jones pounced on a defensive mix-up in the first minute of added time to stab the ball into the net to set up a shootout. Ross MacKinnon missed Neilston’s first penalty in sudden death of the shoot-out as Kyle Chrystal buried his. Glens assistant Joe Pryce said: “We were not anywhere near our best and made things difficult for ourselves. “But we dug in and got there in the end.” Neilston co-boss Chris Cameron said: “It’s disappointing to lose it on penalties but it’s a lottery when it gets to that stage.” Greenock...........4 Royal Albert..........1 Mark Alexander bagged a treble to Nock on the door for a top-four slot in Conference B. His drive after being fed from a corner and Dylan’s McLaughlin’s flick – with his back to goal – over Albert keeper Jay Elliot made it two at the break. Brandon McKenzie curled in to halve the deficit but McLaughlin’s cross teed up Alexander before the man of the afternoon ran on to a long ball two minutes later. The hat-trick hero – whose side now sit seventh, two points off the top four – said: “I hadn’t scored all season so to get three was great. I’m enjoying my new role.” Albert coach David Hill said: “We were well in the game at times and had a good shape to the team but gave away easy goals. “You can’t afford to do that at this level.”

54 Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 email A party peace by Ross ■ Lindsay herron Partick Thistle stars are thanking the Doc for saving Christmas after they claimed their place in tomorrow’s fourth round draw of the Scottish Cup. On Friday night the Jags were eight minutes away from a replay away to Dunfermline on December 7. That’s the same night as their big festive knees-up and it looked as though their party plans would be in tatters until skipper Ross Docherty produced a stunning winning goal – to spark some extra special celebrations from his Jags team-mates. It turns out the Pars are scheduled to party on the same night, so some festive cheer will probably drown their Cup disappointment. Docherty said: “The replay would have been when our Christmas night out is planned so it was good to get the goal and not put that in jeopardy. “Hopefully they’ll be buying me a few drinks when we go out. “There was a wee bit of an added celebration – a lot of the big interview David templeton might have got away with not tracking his runner on the pitch. But when he couldn’t get after his son’s toy shopping trolley around the living room he knew it was time to quit. At 32, the winger was forced into retirement last week as he feared his hamstring could snap at any moment. It wasn’t an easy decision, given Templeton’s passion for the game. But when he couldn’t play with his wee boy Rhen due to the pain he was in, enough was enough. The former Hearts, Rangers and Hamilton Accies wide man has toiled with injuries for a large chunk of his career. He reckons he has spent five-and-ahalf years in total on a treatment table and it has finally taken its toll. Templeton wants to stay in the game and become a coach or pundit. He’s already working with Accies’ Under-14 side and hopes to start up his own academy. And with the skill and technical ability Templeton had at his peak, he’s plenty to offer young Scottish talent. As he reflected on the decision to quit, he revealed being caught short in a game against Kilmarnock in August was a major red flag. But ultimately, when it started to affect his family time, his mind was made up. In an exclusive interview with MailSport, he said: “It was affecting me in the house with the wee man. “He’s nearly two and wants to play all the time. But I can’t bend over, it’s too sore. That’s probably what made my decision for me. “I’ve realised there’s more to life than just football. “Rhen has got these two wee shopping trolleys that he’s obsessed with. He takes one and wants me to chase him with the other one. “But because of how low down David knew it was time to quit when he couldn’t keep up with his wee boy Scott McDermott they are, I need to bend over to do it. After one time round the house, it’s too painful for me. He shouts at me to do it again and I can’t. “Stuff like that makes it hit home. And if I went for an operation on the hamstring, I’d be in a brace for six weeks and unable to do anything. “That’s OK if you haven’t got kids. If you can sit and relax, do nothing, then that’s fine. “But I couldn’t do it. As I’m getting older, with the injuries I’ve had, I just had to ask myself: ‘Is it worth it?’ “I came on against Kilmarnock for Accies at the start of the season and thought I’d get through it. “But at one point they broke on us. Their keeper threw it to Chris Burke and, as I tried to run back, I saw Liam Polworth free. “Any other time, I’d go in on him because he was the danger. But I tried to run and just couldn’t open up. “I didn’t get back in and Killie went on to score from that move. Polworth set up Scott Robinson for a goal. “After that, it dawned on me that I couldn’t even run. With the ball at my feet, turning, I’m fine. But any time I try to press a man or follow a one-two, I can’t push off my left foot. “It feels like my hamstring is about to snap every time.” Templeton could have gone under the knife again but with no guarantee of a full recovery. Even then, after yet another six months out, he feared having to play part-time football or even not getting a club at all. He said: “I’ve been thinking about this decision for four weeks. The injury just wasn’t getting any better. “I knew there was something that wasn’t right. So I got an MRI scan and it turns out, the tendon in my hamstring is chronic. “It could just keep tearing because it’s so weak now. “I could have had it operated on but it would mean six more months out and who’s going to touch me on the back of two years out injured? “If no club touched me, I’d potentially have to go part-time anyway. So it’s purely my decision.” Templeton spent five years in and around Hearts’ first-team and scored a memorable goal against Liverpool at Anfield in the 2012 UEFA Cup. Soon after that, he got a dream move to Rangers albeit with the Ibrox club in the lower divisions after their financial implosion. He was pinpointed by then gaffer Ally McCoist as a key man in getting them back to the top flight. But injuries severely hampered him. Templeton knows he has suffered from some horrendous bad luck but is refusing to dwell on the past. He said: “I’m not someone who tends to look back – I prefer to try to look to the future. “I had an alright career. But I know it could have gone better at times and injuries didn’t help. “I reckon I’ve probably had about five-and-a-half years out just through injuries. It probably held me back from really fulfilling my potential. And I was unlucky with the timing of them. My first injury at Hearts was just after making my debut. “On the second day of pre-season, I fractured my fifth metatarsal. That was bad timing and it set me back. “I went to Rangers and hurt my ankle in my second game, which kept me out for 10 weeks. Again, bad timing. “And when I did my knee at Rangers I was out for two years. My contract ran out so the timing was brutal again. “That’s frustrating but it’s football, isn’t it?” Despite those setbacks, Templeton insists signing for Gers was the proudest moment of his career. He made 84 appearances for the club, scoring 26 goals – not a bad return given the problems he endured. And despite having to hang up his boots early, he’s delighted that he got to pull on a blue shirt. Templeton said: “My best moment was signing for Rangers. “Obviously, it didn’t work out how I wanted it to. But to say I’ve played for Rangers is always good, that makes me proud. “I’ve a lot of family and friends who are Rangers fans so I know how much it means to people. “I can say I played for the club and scored at Ibrox. There are thousands of people who dream of doing that. “Walking out for that first game at Ibrox, with 50,000 supporters singing my name ... people don’t get to say that too often. “And no one can take that away from me.” PARTY TIME hero Doc the boys were screaming and I think they were all knackered when they got back to the halfway line.” The Firhill midfielder rates his winner as the best goal of his career and feels he was due it. He said: “It was brilliant. I actually had a shot against (Pars keeper) Owain Fon Williams the last time we played and he pulled off a worldie, which he mentioned to me. “I don’t think I’ve scored a better goal. It’s always nice to score but it’s special when it’s one like that. “We’re just happy to get through because it was a horrible night.” It’s now seven games since Thistle last conceded a goal as they wait to find out who they will face in tomorrow night’s draw. Docherty said: “It’s a great run we’re on and we don’t look like giving up many chances. “I got to the quarters with Ayr in 2017. Everyone loves a cup run so it would be good if we could go on one because it’s also good financially for the club.” MY PLAY TIME IS OVER

web Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 55 CRUTCH AND GO Templeton on crutches at Accies and (below) happier times with his wife Robyn and son Rhen i’LL bring On FUtUre StArS David Templeton wants to help coach the next generation of young Scottish talent. The former Hearts, Rangers and Hamilton winger was forced to hang up his boots last week aged 32 due to a persistent hamstring injury. He’s already coaching Accies’ kids and now aims to start up his own academy. He said: “I’m taking Accies’ Under-14s, which is great. And if I start my coaching school hopefully I can link up with Hamilton and feed them in. I’ve a lot to offer young players. And it’s rewarding when you see the kids getting better. I wouldn’t mind getting into the media side too. I love speaking about football, analysing the tactical side. I wanted to be a scout but that’s difficult now because most clubs have a director of football.” ABI HABIT Harrison’s late header finds net Harrison is up for many Abi returns Scotland striker Abi Harrison is hoping her last-minute leveller against Ukraine at Hampden on Friday earns her a starting place in the side to face Spain on Tuesday. Pedro Martinez Losa’s squad will tackle the Spaniards in Seville and Harrison is desperate to get the nod. She said: “I don’t know if I have done enough to start. “It was a late call-up for me and I came in and started so I was over the moon to get the goal.” Spain are favourites to win the group and bag an automatic ticket to the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Having won their last 15 games without even conceding a goal, Scotland’s task could not be any tougher. Harrison said: “We can take heart from the second-half performance on Friday. “We will look and see what we can do better but we want to go and do as well as we possibly can against a team that we know have so much quality. “We are underdogs but we all believe in ourselves. We will never go in thinking that we are walking into a game to be beaten. “That is the Scottish in us, we have a bit of fight and we want to give it our all. “We know that it will be hard and we will need to be fully concentrated at the back . “We will have a game plan where we know that we might not have a lot of the ball.” While Friday night’s performance might not ■ Alison McConnell have been great at Hampden, Harrison’s goal was a personal moment to savour. The 23-year-old – the youngest player to feature in the Scottish Wo m e n’s P r e m i e r League when she played for Celtic aged just 14 – missed 10 months of her career to an anterior cruciate ligament injury. The challenge now is to go and hold down a regular international place after her late call-up to Martinez Losa’s squad. She admitted: “It was a big moment. “Last-minute goals at Hampden seem to be becoming a thing for Scotland teams. “It was lovely to have a taste of what that feels like. “When it is 90 minutes gone and you are looking at taking nothing from the game then you will always take a draw. “We were pressing and even when the board went up with four minutes we wanted to keep going. “These Scotland fans never know when they are beaten and neither do we. “We knew what we were doing was working and we just kept going. “It was a great feeling when it came off. “We were frustrated with the performance because we know the first half wasn’t great. “We didn’t exploit the space enough during the match but we have to try to take the positives from the second half and how we kept on going.” GRASSROOTS HEROES TAKE HAMPDEN BOW SEE PAGES 52&53

The hitman netted twice as the Reds thrashed Southampton 4-0 to move up to second in the Premier League. Thiago Alcantara and Virgil van Dijk were also on target and Jota said: “It is always easier when you start well with a goal at home. “We knew in the past we have been 2-0 up and not won the game. But we did today and that is important. The most important is that we win. I take advantage of playing for a good team. Fortunately for me I can score goals and hopefully keep doing it.” Scotland captain Andrew Robertson Manchester united believe that ralf rangnick’s arrival at Old Trafford will give them an edge in the race for erling haaland. Rangnick, 63, signed the 21-year-old striker for RB Salzburg in January 2019 for £7.2million when he was sporting director for Red Bull’s two European clubs. Borussia Dortmund are likely to cash in on Haaland when a £63million escape clause in his contract kicks in next summer. United will face fierce competition from Europe’s top clubs to land the Norwegian – but having Rangnick on board could prove vital. As well as being interim boss for the rest of the WIn BonUS Gerrard Chelsea v Man united Today 4.30pm, Sky Sports season, the German is set to help the Old Trafford board find a permanent successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He will add protege and Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann to a shortlist headed by PSG’s Mauricio Pochettino, former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag. R a n g n i c k mentored Nagelsmann, 34, at RB L e i p z i g good call Tuchel got start from Ralf and he is now one of the hottest coaching properties in world football. Michael Carrick will again be in charge of United at Chelsea today after securing a 2-0 Champions League win over Villarreal in midweek. Facing the European champions and Premier League leaders is a daunting task as they have been turned into a mean machine by Thomas Tuchel. But the Blues boss has revealed he could have ended up leading a dull life in economics if it wasn’t for Rangnick. His old boss at SSV Ulm gave him a pathway into coaching with VfB Stuttgart and Tuchel said: “I was a normal student but Ralf called me because he was my former coach and knew I was in Stuttgart studying. “He asked me if I could try in the academy and I did four months just being a second home through a ruck of bodies following Ashley Young’s corner. John McGinn made it 2-0 with four minutes left, curling a shot into the top corner from 18 yards. Palace managed to snatch a late consolation through Marc assistant there. From there I did my licences and I started coaching the Under-14s. “I finished my economics studies but he opened the door to coaching. “At some point, you have to go through the door and you are responsible for yourself to make the very best of opportunities. “This is what I did because I had people like Ralf who supported me.” Tuchel was at a very low ebb after a knee injury ruined his playing career aged 24. He added: “I felt in the rehabilitation process that I would not make it back to my level, which was at that time second, third division. “I saw my team-mates getting better and better under Ralf and making it to the first league, which was always my dream. “It was so close to being maybe a Bundesliga player. When that happened (the Guehi in injury-time but there was no time left for them to mount another attack. Gerrard, who never beat Palace at Selhurst Park as a player, said: “It has been a real big step to take six points from six but we can’t get carried away. “It has been a positive couple of weeks. The players have been fantastic in their application. We injury), I was angry. I felt betrayed by the situation. “I did not know what to do. All my life I dreamed to be a football player. “I needed to re-focus, which is not always easy. “To go to a bar and work for money and go to university and meet people who know you and say, ‘Hey, what’s up? Don’t you play any more?’ You have to swallow your pride and overcome some difficult moments and days of looking into the mirror. “But it was very healthy for me in the end. “I did not know what to do so I studied economics because I thought my mother can sleep very well once I finish something at university, and do not only start things. “In football it’s so much easier than economics, which is just a decision from the brain but not from your heart. “I was lucky to take these decisions.” Gerrard’s impact is Crystal clear Steven Gerrard is proving he doesn’t need a Palace to feel right at home because a Villa will do very nicely. The former Rangers boss made it two wins from two as his side struck early then weathered a second-half storm to snatch a crucial second goal. Matt Targett fired Villa ahead on 15 minutes when he rifled Crystal palace.......1 aston Villa.............2 had to dig in at times but we managed to get over the line.” Palace boss Patrick Vieira said: “I’m disappointed because we didn’t play the way we can and didn’t defend well enough. “We are focusing on defending set plays and we need to do more on that. Our passing wasn’t the best, we didn’t create enough and we didn’t deserve anything.” jot on Diogo hit two crossed to Jota to poke home the opener after just two minutes. The unmarked Portuguese tapped in Mohamed Salah’s square ball for the second and the third arrived just minutes later when Thiago’s deflected strike found the back of the net. Van Dijk wrapped it up from a corner and Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl said: “It is not possible to defend against this quality.” Arsenal eventually broke Newcastle down to leave Eddie Howe’s winless side bottom of the league. Bukayo Saka slotted home in the second-half before Gabriel Martinelli hit a volley to seal a 2-0 win. Norwich’s resistance against relegation continued as they more than matched Wolves in a 0-0 at Carrow Road. Brighton missed a string of chances in a goalless draw at home to Leeds.

A first-half Jamie Darroch goal was followed by a killer second from Nicky Little as the Bankies stunned the Bully Wee and sent them packing. Delighted Moffat hailed his battling side as their success caught the gaffer out. He said: “It’s not really sunk in yet and it’s a wee bit surreal. We were comfortable towards the end. I’m greedy and wanted more goals, the boys will tell you that. “We’re delighted to be in the next round and I am delighted for everybody at the club and the people of Clydebank. “We will take whoever we get in the next round and it’s great to be there. I’m delighted for the fans on the terraces who were excellent and backed us when it was a tough opening 20 minutes.” He revealed that there would be no wild celebrations after the game and added: “I have a newborn again and will be taking my shift tonight! “But it’s also Chris Black’s engagement party and there will be celebrations.” Bankies’ Darroch sparked mayhem at Holm Park as he broke the deadlock a minute from the break with a ferocious shot from just inside the box which thundered in off the underside of the bar.

Bankies keeper Jamie Donnelly had to race out of his box to boot clear from Clyde hitman David Goodwillie in 20 minutes. The Bully Wee striker appeared to be pulled down in the box by Bankies defender Paul Byrne in 34 minutes, but ref Alan Newlands waved it off. Bankies boss Moffat said: “I thought it was a dive when I first saw it in real time and it is one of those moments you think, ‘Oh no’. “If one of our boys clipped him, fair enough. I thought he’d gone down easily.” Bankies stormed out in the second half and Clyde keeper Neil Parry had to look lively to paw away a free-kick from Lee Gallacher. Then Ross McPherson just failed to connect with a header in front of goal before Parry flipped away a dangerous header from Matt Niven. Little side footed a neat shot over the keeper only to suffer as the ball flew just over. But in 63 minutes Bankies fans were in raptures as Little smashed home a header from Gallacher’s free-kick. Gutted Bully Wee boss Danny Lennon said: “I want to apologise to the fans who travelled and those who didn’t make it – they were lucky ones.

web Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 59 Accies get Bot spanked Shock troops are at it again Graham Wilson was the hero as Auchinleck Talbot wrote another chapter in their sensational giantkilling story and consigned Hamilton to one of their worst ever results. Furious Accies fans rounded on the away dugout in the closing stages as the struggling Championship side slumped to a major humbling at the hands of a team four divisions below. Boss Stuart Taylor admitted he felt the SAME as the supporters who unleashed their frustrations his way after their stuttering season slumped to a new embarrassing low. Wilson swivelled to lash home a long throw from Keir Samson an hour into a pulsating tie cementing the latest in a growing list of scalps in the Beechwood Park bear pit. Ayr United and Cove Rangers, twice, have been dumped by Tommy Sloan’s cup specialists in the last three years while Arbroath escaped with a lastgasp draw two years ago. Now Accies have been added to the list and Taylor said: “Coming here and the hype around it – which isn’t an excuse – but it was the hardest tie of the round. I absolutely understand the fans. I am not happy with the result. I am not happy with the defeat. It is not acceptable. “Before I came in I knew there were a lot of things needing done ■ Fraser Wilson and we need to keep at it but I am confident we’ll turn it round. I am frustrated and angry. I have all those emotions too but I need to pick them up. It is about character and mental strength.” Sloan’s side could have gone ahead in the eighth minute when Jamie Glasgow’s cutback found Kieran Healy but the midfielder couldn’t get a clean connection. Moments later Mark Shankland’s cross found Glasgow, whose half volley was well saved by Joe Hilton. Andy Leishman excelled to keep the scores level just a minute into the second-half when he threw himself to his right to save Kyle Munro’s 25- yard drive before brilliantly blocking Andy Ryan’s follow-up from point blank range. Sub Samson’s long throw was then flicked on by Gareth Armstrong and Wilson found room 12 yards out to swivel and smash a shot past Hilton. Beechwood erupted and Sloan’s heroes held on for yet another scalping. The ecstatic gaffer said: “People are already asking me if this is bigger than when we beat Ayr, but right now I don’t care – all that matters is that we won. This team just keep doing it on the big occasions. “I’m absolutely delighted. It was a tremendous performance.” Wright tease a jolly good fellow Tommy Wright revealed he wound up Euan Murray about his scoring record at Killie before he snatched yesterday’s Cup winner. The centre-back scored seven last season for Dunfermline but hadn’t found his goal touch so far in Ayrshire. But he headed the winner in first-half injury time despite suffering from a hamstring injury Wright said: “It was a good goal from Euan and we want more of that. “I was joking with him: ‘How did you score all those goals last season?’ He’s only scored twice for us – both times against Auchinleck Talbot .....1 Hamilton Accies ........0 Queen’s Park..0 Kilmarnock..1 Queen’s. They’ll probably be sick of him.” It was Murray’s last involvement. Wright said: “Euan felt his hamstring just before scoring so we took him off. The victory should have been more comfortable.” Michael Doyle went closest for Spiders but Sam Walker made a fantastic save and Doyle was sent off three minutes from time for a lunging challenge on Liam Polworth. Queen’s boss Laurie Ellis said: “I’m proud – we made a cup tie of it.” WRIGHT teasing paid off for Killie SkElpEd the Bot celebrate Wilson’s winner NO CASH IN THE BANKS FOR FIFERS Banks O’Dee produced a huge shock by dumping out League One East Fife. The Junior North Superleague side stunned their visitors with a sizzling fightback at Spain Park. Jamie Semple had fired the Fifers ahead with a long range chip after just 13 minutes but Liam Newton scored an own goal to level things up. Aaron Dunsmore then saw red before Mark Gilmour put The Dee ahead with nine minutes to go as the home support erupted. Scott Mercer was sent off in injury time as the managerless Methil men ended with nine men on a day to forget.

Had a hand in the opening goal. curl friend Smith hails goal hero Kingsley We must strike the match ■ Scott Mcdermott Jim Goodwin felt St Mirren matched Hearts in every department – apart from putting the ball in the net. The Buddies boss cut a frustrated figure after a Tynecastle defeat that leaves them without a win in six Premiership games. Saints finished with 10 men after captain Joe Shaughnessy was sent off in injury time. And after having a goal ruled out for offside, losing Scott Tanser to injury and suffering another loss – Goodwin was left to rue his team’s luck. He said: “The frustration for me is that at 0-0 we’re the better team. “I’m not saying we were miles better but we were on top for the first 45 minutes. “We pressed aggressively, played some good football and probably had the better opportunities. Craig Gordon for a while it wasn’t going to script for Hearts. But when you can ‘Bend it like Kingsley’ – they were always likely to get the happy ending they craved. St Mirren performed well and the plot twist should have been them going in front at Tynecastle. But after Gary Mackay-Steven’s second-half opener, Stephen Kingsley took a starring role with a brilliant free-kick to ensure all the credits stayed in Gorgie. The defender has scored four goals this season so far, three of them deadball specials. And his gaffer Robbie Neilson needed it to seal the points that took Jambos second-top of the Premiership. The home side were booed off by their own fans at half-time despite drawing 0-0. And the crowd were getting restless before they broke the deadlock. Afterwards, Neilson hailed Kingsley’s technique and told his players that dealing with the pressure to entertain is part of being at such a big club. He said: “Kingsley’s a great asset and to be fair to the kid, he practises all the time after training. He’s got real quality in that left foot. “Do the crowd have to be more patient? No, that’s part and parcel of playing at Tynecastle. They pay their money to be entertained and see goals. “In the first half, we got into areas but didn’t have the final moment or pull the trigger. In the second half we were a lot more free-flowing. “We’re pleased to be second because St Mirren are a very good team, they press really well and stop you playing.” After a brilliant start to the league, Gie’S SeT-Piece Kingsley makes it 2-0 with free-kick and (inset) Shaughnessy’s sent off Defender Stephen bends in a belter to put Jambos second HEArTS.........2 ST MIrrEN.........0 SCoTT McdErMoTT AT TYNECASTLE Hearts’ confidence was dented by losing at Motherwell last time out – and it was evident early on here. Neilson shuffled his pack but on a freezing cold day, they were slow out the blocks. St Mirren were sharper, pressing high up the pitch. And the home side needed Scotland No.1 Craig Gordon to keep out a goal from point-blank range. From a Jamie McGrath corner, Charles Dunne found himself on the deck but hooked a left-foot shot that was kept out superbly by Gordon’s legs. The Tynecastle crowd couldn’t get going, just like Neilson’s players. Richard Tait had the ball in the net for St Mirren before the break but it was ruled out for offside – much to his gaffer’s frustration. Hearts were fortunate to be level but the fear for Saints was that they had to improve in the second half. And from the restart, there was far more urgency and purpose about them. Their starting position was 10 yards up the pitch which allowed them to get more bodies into danger areas. Barrie McKay robbed Marcus Fraser in his own half and picked out a brilliant ball to Mackay-Steven at the back post. The winger’s volley looked netbound but keeper Jak Alnwick pulled off a wonder save to deny him. The game was opening up and the visitors still looked dangerous. In fact, how they weren’t in front moments before the hour mark was anyone’s guess. First, the move of the match ended with McGrath forcing Gordon into a fantastic one-handed save. From the resultant corner, Fraser’s bullet header was stopped on the line by Liam Boyce and, as the Paisley side smelt blood, sub Kyle McAllister fired in a shot that was tipped over by Hearts skipper Gordon. To be fair, both goalkeepers were having a good day. Michael Smith should have buried a chance for the Jambos from McKay’s pass – but Alnwick was there to save from close range. Unfortunately for Goodwin, there was nothing his goalie could do about the Jambos’ opener moments later. McKay was probing again and when his cross was blocked it fell perfectly for Mackay-Steven who wrong-footed Alnwick to slot into the corner. That relieved the pressure on Hearts and with 15 minutes to go, they put the game to bed. Goodwin wasn’t happy again when referee Alan Muir awarded a free-kick against Dunne for pulling Boyce. But Kingsley still had plenty to do from 22 yards and he stepped up to curl a magnificent shot away from Alnwick into the top bin. St Mirren’s misery was complete when their captain Joe Shaughnessy was sent off near the end for a second bookable offence when he tripped Cammy Devlin. Kingsley stepped up again – but this time fluffed his lines. GOOdWin frustration made two or three saves that kept Hearts in the game. “Those key moments in matches are really coming back to bite us. “The manner of how we conceded hurts me. It was a stupid ball across the pitch that gets cut out and a deflected cross fell kindly for Gary Mackay-Steven. “We’re not getting those gifts at the moment. “The disallowed goal looks very tight. If the assistant has got it right it’s a hell of a call. “I’m also disappointed with the red card. “Joe was the last man and there was a bit of grappling on the edge of the box. “But with Hearts 2-0 up and the game done, I don’t think anybody would have minded if the referee had turned a blind eye. “It’s a big call for us because we are already missing Conor McCarthy at the back. “Ultimately, you have to put the ball in the net and we haven’t done it. “We have to get back to winning ways – and soon.”

The Perth manager thought his short-handed side’s back-to-the-wall second-half performance was going to be enough to secure victory. But two late strikes from Kevin Nisbet and Jamie Murphy overturned Liam Gordon’s first-half goal for St Johnstone. Bryson’s second yellow card, for a foul on Joe Newell shortly before the break, left Saints down to 10 men for the entire second half. And boss Davidson said: “Ultimately the sending off cost us the game. “Craig’s taken a bad first touch and gone in and these days that tackle will always turn into a Jack Ross reckons his neversay-die Hibs stars proved they didn’t lose faith during a fivegame league losing streak. Goals from Kevin Nisbet and Jamie Murphy in the final seven minutes ended 10-man Saints’ stubborn resistance. The Perth men had taken the lead in the first half through skipper Liam Gordon’s header but lost Craig Bryson after his second yellow before the break. And they withstood all that Hibs could throw at them – until the 83rd minute when Nisbet fired the equaliser. And sub Murphy’s goal from close range three minutes later got the Hibees back to winning ways at last. Boss Jack said: “We deserved the win. The result was brilliant but it was a really good performance as well. “This period was one for us to have trust in the players. “When you lose that number of games sometimes you can feel that individuals are losing faith within the group. “It has not been like that though – my players have been nice and bright and upbeat. They showed that in the manner of their performance. “They showed a lot of trust. We created so many opportunities. The amount of time it took was a frustration but thankfully we got there in the end.” Jack was thrilled for striker Nisbet, who stuck to his guns after having two previous efforts chalked off.

He was excellent in his overall play. To keep coming back was great and his finish for the equaliser was excellent.” Both teams were short of firepower, forcing rival bosses Callum Davidson and Jack to dig deep into their squads. With Chris Kane suspended and Stevie May, Glenn Middleton and David Wotherspoon injured, 22-year-old Eetu Vertainen was handed his first start. But the Finn was sacrificed at the interval after Bryson’s early exit. Hibs duo Martin Boyle and Christian Doidge both missed out after picking up controversial red cards in the midweek loss at Ross County. But defensive lynchpin Ryan Porteous returned from a one-match ban. Hibs were first to threaten but an assistant’s flag chalked off Nisbet’s finish after the centre outpaced backtracking defender Jamie McCart. Saints finally posed a threat in the 24th minute when Michael O’Halloran’s shot skimmed past the post. One-time Hearts kid Gordon stunned the Easter Road side with an opener four minutes from the break. Ali Crawford’s corner was defended but the on-loan Bolton midfielder swung over a teasing cross to the back post and Gordon’s powerful header found the net despite a desperate effort to block by Porteous. Hibs almost replied immediately but Josh Campbell’s header clipped the post. Bryson picked up a needless second yellow for a half-way line lunge on Joe Newell, after picking-up an earlier booking for a foul on Porteous. Chris Cadden smashed an angled strike off the face of the bar then Nisbet thought he’d bagged a 61st-minute equaliser – but for a second time his celebrations proved premature. To the fury of Hibs players and fans, ref Euan Anderson had spotted a push on Gordon. Murphy conjured up a spectacular volley in the 68th minute but Zander Clark brilliantly touched it over. However, weary Saints wilted in the final 10 minutes. First Nisbet’s perseverance paid off when he stroked home an 84th-minute equaliser after slick interplay between Scott Allan and Murphy. Then playmaker Allan picked out Murphy to slide home a dramatic winner two minutes later.

The Fir Park gaffer warned his players their performance was nowhere near good enough. Alexander said: “The thing I can look at is mindset because it is not the first time we have thrown in a performance like that against a team that is struggling at the bottom of the league. “We can see the heights this team can reach in these last two weeks against Hearts and Aberdeen, two big clubs who were in good form at the time. “We have shown the reverse, the ugly side of us. “We might think it is only 10 percent off if we try to justify it but even 10 per cent is too much.

A Tony Watt cross eventually fell to van Veen and he cracked in a shot that came back off the woodwork. It was a scare for Dundee but seconds later they had the ball in the net for a third time and the points were secured.

64 Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 email BIG MATCH SPECIAL Malky Mackay was SHoCKED by Harry Clarke’s red card – but admits he was proud as punch of Ross County’s performance. The Dingwall boss saw his ten-man, bottom of the table side grab a last-gasp point deep in stoppage time. Super sub Joseph Hungbo’s dramatic stoppage-time freekick was touched in by Jack Baldwin to cancel out Louis Appere’s opener. In between, Clarke walked for a second booking after a clash with Ian Harkes. But Mackay said: “It was more than harsh, I couldn’t believe it. “Harry was slightly late but there was no connection – it was nothing. “I was amazed he gave it and it spoiled it, it really did. “Young Clarke was playing really well. There was no malice in it – a foul, no more. “Five minutes before it, their left-back emptied Joe Hungbo when he nicked the ball through his legs and didn’t get a booking for that. You just look for parity. “We’re disappointed with it, but I was delighted by our attitude and application. “I felt a point was the least we deserved. We had the confidence, even then, to go and try to get the equaliser, so I’ve got to be delighted not only with their work ethic, but their actual play.” Hungbo can claim his part in a Dundee double after he scored a stunning free-kick against United’s neighbours at Dens Park in October. Defender Baldwin got the final touch to yesterday’s delivery, but it was the Watford loanee’s dead-ball prowess from 25 yards that made the difference. And while it helped earn his side a precious point, it couldn’t stop them falling three points behind Dundee at the foot of the table. There was a distinct lack of goalmouth action in the first 20 minutes – but plenty of fire in exchanges. United’s Florent Hoti finally mustered the afternoon’s first attempt with a powerful 25-yard drive which County keeper Ash Maynard-Brewer HARRY’S RED WAS SO CARD TO TAKE Malky’s relief as County bag point after Clarke walks RoSS CoUNTY...1 DUNDEE UTD...1 ALASDAIR fRASER AT THE GLoBAL ENERGY STADIUM parried and then gathered. The home side had recalled Blair Spittal and David Cancola after Wednesday night’s valuable 1-0 home win over Hibs, with Hungbo and Ross Callachan dropping out. For United, Jeando Fuchs and suspended Calum Butcher were missing, with Hoti and Appere coming in. County had pulled off a tremendous effort in clearing the pitch of snow and ice yesterday morning, but there wasn’t too much football gracing it as the game approached the half hour. Then, County’s Paton won a free-kick for a challenge by Peter Pawlett to the left of the United penalty box. Spittal curled in a teasing ball and Baldwin’s header smacked back off the inside of the post. The rebound fell into Paton’s path square on goal but, remarkably, the Canadian’s right-footed blast from pointblank range was headed over by Ryan Edwards on the line. Moments later, a Regan Charles-Cook cross flashed across the United goal from the right. Charlie Mulgrew turned it away for a corner, but it was a close call. United took the lead in the 49th minute. County had a couple of attempts at clearing their penalty area, but Baldwin’s dig clear fell to Ilmari Niskanen, who prodded the ball to the feet of Appere. With his back to goal, the 22-year-old striker swivelled sharply and gleefully stuck away only the eighth goal of his United career. County worked hard to respond and Spittal’s powerful left foot crack at goal was blocked by keeper Benjamin Siegrist and then cleared by his defence. County’s luck was out again in the 74th minute, when another Baldwin header crashed off the top of the bar from Spittal’s corner. Their plight deepened when Arsenal loanee Clarke, already booked, was sent off following a clash with Harkes. The ten men kept battling and Spittal’s deflected shot almost sneaked in before Siegrist salvaged it. Then, three minutes into stoppage time, Hungbo fired in a great free-kick and Baldwin slid home the leveller.

APPERE United strike Tam Courts saw red after his Dundee United side failed to make the most of Ross County having a man sent off. United were leading through Louis Appere’s strike when Harry Clarke was sent off for a second booking. But rather than go on to claim three points and move up to joint second, United were stunned by Jack Baldwin’s stoppage-time equaliser. Tannadice boss Courts admitted: ■ Alasdair fraser “It was gutting in the end. Our attitude and application was pretty evident, but we lacked a bit of control and composure. “So even when they went down to 10 men, because we didn’t have that real control it was almost negligible.” Courts was left frustrated by United’s failure to see the game out. WE WERE A mAn up buT DiDn’T mAn up He added: “We expected a tight, physical game and that’s how it transpired. It probably wasn’t too high on real quality. “We’ve had a few 1-0 victories this year and normally the players can see it through, but it is always precarious. We saw that today. “We have an over-riding objective which is to hang on to the teams at the very top for as long as possible. We’re frustrated to pass up the opportunity to move joint second but by the same token, a draw was probably fair. “We absolutely came here for the win and got our noses in front, so a point is a little bit frustrating.” Courts also praised scorer Appere. He said: “It was a great composed finish and it was great to see him rewarded. He led the line really well and has given me food for thought.”

web THE voicE of ExpEriEncE sunday Mail November 28, 2021 65 Forget parochial and go For the panoramic HELPING Old Firm too short-sighted in modern world HAND Gio has full backroom team but Ange (below) is still a man alone celtic’s obsession with winning 10-in-a-row did for them last season. Rangers’ obsession with stopping 10-in-a-row did for them last Sunday. Connor Goldson’s words at Hampden after the Premier Sports Cup defeat from Hibs betrayed the truth. The Rangers players thought their work was done because they had delivered the meaning of life to the fans by winning one league title. Steven Gerrard emphasised the point at his first Aston Villa press conference when he spoke about having a remit at Ibrox – and having fulfilled that remit. Now Rangers and Celtic have managers who are capable of changing the supporters’ mindset from the parochial to the panoramic. And they need to see the bigger picture. Likewise, the people who employ Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Ange Postecoglou have to up their game at the same time. To the wider world, 10-in-a-row means the square root of sod all. Outsiders think it signifies a lack of proper competition, that’s all. The challenge for a Dutchman and a Greek Aussie is to rise above a domestic squabble and think European. Van Bronckhorst has, quite rightly, assembled a mini-army of people he trusts behind the scenes and made a positive opening statement by progressing in the Europa League following Thursday’s defeat of Sparta Prague. The biggest gift he can bring to the club is the introduction of a continental dimension. A narrow-minded attitude in Glasgow’s claustrophobic atmosphere only leads to one thing for Rangers and Celtic. Developmental suffocation. When Giovanni was appointed, Rangers Sporting Director Ross Wilson said modern, innovative football clubs always had to have a swift succession process in mind. It was, to my way of thinking, a not very subtle dig at Celtic over the tortuous Eddie Howe fiasco. But what makes Celtic’s Europa League campaign look more praiseworthy in hindsight is that Postecoglou, within the space of four months, turned the wreckage he inherited at short notice into something so positive. He was only eight minutes away from becoming the first Celtic manager in history to win a European tie on German soil against Bayer Leverkusen. The belated defeat is still to Ange’s credit because he remains in control of a club who have yet to even address the question of a director of sport and denied him the backing behind the scenes that van Bronckhorst enjoys. He is, to all intents and purposes, a man on his own. But if you can feel disappointment over losing to a Bundesliga side on their own ground then advances are being made. You can compromise your principles or else pay the cost of having principles – and Postecoglou is determined to be his own man. At least Celtic had a proper press conference where questions, relevant or otherwise, could be asked. Rangers need to match van Bronckhorst’s continental sophistication in that regard. The club carefully stage-managed the media conference to unveil their new manager on Tuesday, admitting the press members, who are normally excluded on the basis that they refuse to pay cash for questions, and using them like extras in a crowd scene from a movie. The following day they refused BT Sports permission to work inside Ibrox because former Celtic striker Chris Sutton was one of their pundits. If you had turned on the national broadcaster looking for radio commentary of the tie with Sparta Prague there was none due to Rangers’ longrunning dispute with the BBC. And today, at Livingston, Giovanni will wonder where everyone’s gone after the game because he’ll be back to talking to two men and a dog as the mainstream media are once again denied access. Not very modern or innovative. Short sighted rather than panoramic. Van Bronckhorst has a world vision, having played in England’s Premier League, La Liga with Barcelona and with Holland in a World Cup Final. Alfredo Morelos, as predicted here last week, has jumped to attention in response. Even a party goer knows when it’s time to get dressed and go to work. The club should respond to the high profile that van Bronckhorst brings them and rise above rows in the steamie. Meanwhile, Celtic must react to the Gio force propelling the neighbours and give Ange a bigger hand to realise his vision of moving them forward. I’m not a clairvoyant, mate, but one guy’s got a head start and that staffing situation needs to be evened up or the race is over prematurely. A narrowminded attitude only leads to developmental suffocation Scott Brown will feel emotionally dizzy today as he faces the club he graced. Aberdeen’s form suggests a career winding down rather than one winding up the opposition. I hope he gets a UEFA Fair Play award for his solidarity with Glen Kamara, just to hear him explain it to his kids after the barneys, blow-ups and mayhem in his wake. AbusE of plAyErs HAs To sTop We must be worried about deteriorating relations between players and fans. Aberdeen’s Funso Ojo misses today’s game against Celtic due to the red card he received last weekend against Dundee United. The home fans at Tannadice cheered the sending-off as if a goal had been scored by their team. This followed the supporters witnessing one of their number clashing with Ojo and subsequently being arrested and charged with assault. The supporter has since had his season ticket cancelled by United. If you look at the television footage of the incident scores of young people not yet old enough to shave thrust themselves forward to hurl abuse in Ojo’s direction. Players take the knee before games to be respectful of people of colour. Fans abhor racism and react badly if a foreign player brings it to our doorstep. So what about appreciating a players’ right to feel the pitch is his workplace and not somewhere he can be targeted? The day that players feel unsafe doing their job is the day we don’t have a game any more. Ukraine were unbeaten in their World Cup qualification group. They wouldn’t have looked out of place among the seeded teams in Friday’s draw. Scotland don’t play them until March so, for the next four months, you ignore all of the above. Reality is suspended out of respect for bravado. The real world can wait until we need to face it.

66 Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 email LIVINGSTON v RANGERS TODAY, 12pM, TONY MACARONI ARENA, SKY SpORTS BRISTLING WITH CONFIDENCE Devlin, with his charity ‘tache, is looking up table Gaffer’s faith has got Lions in good Nick Skipper Nicky Devlin insists boss David Martindale’s promise that Livingston will not be relegated gave his players a huge boost. The guarantee from the gaffer came when the Lions were stuck deep in a rut. It got his Livi players more united than ever and, after winning just one of their opening nine league games, they’re now unbeaten in five with champions Rangers up next. Defender Devlin admits that it heaped expectation on their shoulders early in the campaign. As he prepared for Gers’ visit today, he said: “What the gaffer said about us staying up did put pressure on us. But it also gave us confidence that, even though we were on a poor run, we had his full backing. “He tells us every day that we can stay up. He knows that when we get it right we are a good team. “Hearing it in the press actually gave us a boost. And what you get from the gaffer in public is what he is like day to day with us. “He is open and upfront. As a player that’s all you can ask for. You want to know where you stand and he lets you know. “When you go out on the pitch, you want to do well for yourself. “But because of the type of manager he is, you want to do well for him as well. “That’s because of the belief he puts in ■ Scott McDermott you before games. When he said we wouldn’t go down, it made us want to go that extra yard for him. “We rely on him. When we win games it’s because we’ve worked harder than the opposition. “That’s the ethos this club is built on and it has served us well so far.” Livingston are now moving clear of the relegation play-off spot and within sight of the top six. Their bond as a squad will be evident today and not just in their play. Every player will sport a moustache for ‘Movember’ to raise funds for men’s health charities after teammate Daniel Barden was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Although captain Devlin isn’t too pleased with his own effort at a mouser. He said: “It’s not going great for me! But Jason Holt has a good moustache and Andrew Shinnie had one already, to be fair. “It’s for a great cause and we’ve managed to raise a bit of money and awareness. It’s been good for team bonding and the club are massive on that. “At Livi you have to fit into our work ethic and the way the dressing room is. That’s one of the biggest things the manager looks for when he brings people in.” OLD FIRM NEED A PANORAMIC VISION HUGH KEEVINS: PAGE 65 THE GLORY Miller: Aribo’s set to flourish in Gio’s free role but I fear Gerrard will try to sign him Kenny Miller believes Joe Aribo will get freedom to excel in his new role under Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst. But the club’s former striker hopes Aribo doesn’t end up fleeing Ibrox if ex-gaffer Steven Gerrard comes calling. Miller is a huge fan of the Gers midfielder, who was given more licence to get forward by van Bronckhorst in Thursday night’s 2-0 Europa League win over Sparta Prague. The Dutch coach tinkered with Gerrard’s previous formation, going with a 4-2-3-1 shape that saw Aribo more advanced and up close with frontman Alfredo Morelos. Miller felt it gave Aribo more space to hurt the Czech side in the danger areas. The Nigerian international could have scored a first-half brace but hit the bar and knocked a close-range effort over. Miller is convinced he can thrive in this Rangers team playing further forward, with Ryan Kent and Ianis Hagi on either side of him. But knowing how highly old boss Gerrard rates Aribo, he fears Aston Villa might try to tempt the 25-year-old to the Midlands. Of all the Gers stars Gerrard could go for, Miller feels Aribo and Kent would be his top targets. But in the meantime he’s excited to see what they can produce under van Bronckhorst. Miller said: “I really like Aribo. I like the way he plays. He’s Scott McDermott Gio can be a real Shot in arm Shota Arveladze recalls how a midseason switch did the trick for Rangers 20 years ago and reckons Giovanni van Bronckhorst can spark a repeat. When Dick Advocaat moved upstairs at Ibrox in 2001 and Alex McLeish replaced him in the dugout, Gers went on a 23-game unbeaten run which saw them win two cups. A Treble followed the next season and former Gers star Arveladze sees very technical, 6ft 2ins, looks after the ball – and for a big lad he’s got such quick feet. “He’s a clever player and suits the way Rangers want to play. Against a team with a really deep block, he can combine really well and go past players. “He’s got that ability and, remember, he’s still young. “If you were to ask me right now who Gerrard might come back to try to sign, it would be Aribo or Kent. “I know he really likes both players. They spent a lot of money on Kent and maybe they would pay big for either of them. “It depends what he’s looking for at Villa and who he’s got in those positions. “There would be four players I’d potentially be worried about leaving Ibrox. Along with Kent and Aribo, Glen Kamara and Nathan Patterson must be seen as big targets for a move. “They won’t all go. But of those, I think Steven would maybe come back for Aribo or Kent. The shackles were well and truly off Aribo on T h u r s d a y night. It was t h e m o s t LURKING Gerrard may fancy Aribo for Aston Villa similar signs now van Bronckhorst has replaced Steven Gerrard in the Ibrox hotseat. The Georgian is confident that, like Big Eck, van Bronckhorst will find all the talent required to be successful already in place and a change in approach will get the best from them. He said: “Gio has walked in with a new way of speaking and new people. Who knows what can happen? Dick noticeable change in the system. “ R a n g e r s played with two holders in Steven Davis and Kamara then three in front with Kent, Aribo and Hagi. “But at times the three of them were actually on the SAME side. “So there’s clearly real freedom for them to go and play. “They can be flexible to go and open up the game. “Aribo started centrally but ended up on the sides at times because he’s effective out there as well. “I think he can thrive in this system. It’s not too different to what he was playing under Steven but there’s certainly flexibility about it. “At times on Thursday night, Rangers actually dropped into a 4-4-1-1 with the wingers dropping deeper and Aribo playing off Morelos. “I’m interested to see how it’s going to look under Gio going forward.” Miller knows it’s early days for Rangers under van Bronckhorst and his Dutch backroom team after Gerrard left the club for Villa Park a fortnight ago. But he was impressed with their pressing style against Sparta, especially when they targeted Czech defender Filip Panak who made a horrendous error that led to Morelos scoring his second goal of the night. And although Aribo started centrally behind the Colombian, Miller says Hagi and Kent are just as capable of performing that role. He said: “The negative to that was old school and it got to the stage we needed someone to trust us, to let us express ourselves. “We went on this long unbeaten run under Alex, it shows that things can happen quickly that no one expected. “Alex didn’t change the system, he just tried to put everyone important in the team. I believe everybody now at Rangers will realise this is a different picture with a new manager.” system is that I think it’ll be really hard for Davo and Kamara to deal with everything right across the pitch in midfield. “Because they’ve got a man less there, compared to Steven’s 4-3-3 system. “You can’t ask them to shuttle wide for the entire game, it’s too hard as a two. “It’ll be interesting to see what Gio does but the wingers will have to work harder in those areas. “The positive is that you can put more pressure on the ball higher up. And that was a noticeable thing against Sparta particularly in the second half. “They pinpointed the Prague defender Panak because they identified him as a weakness. “They got at him and put him under pressure. “That’s how they got the second goal. They did it again in the middle of the pitch later on which started another attack. And it’s easier to do that with a recognised trio behind the striker. “It could have been Kent, Aribo or Hagi – any of them can play there. And it does suit all of those players to be flexible in that area.” Miller was delighted to see van Bronckhorst get off to a winning start as Ibrox gaffer and progress in Europe beyond Christmas. But he expects the new boss to face an entirely different challenge against Livingston in the Premiership this afternoon. The former Scotland striker, who had three stints at Gers, said: “It was a really positive result and great that it gets them into the Europa League knock-outs. “But they’ll face a completely different animal against Livi.” ARVELADZE belief

The Lions boss thought the Ibrox board would have retained some of Gerrard’s backroom team for today’s trip to West Lothian. And he wasn’t surprised that Rangers were well beaten by Hibs in the Premier Sports Cup semi-final a week ago. New gaffer Giovanni van FROM BACK PAGE Bronckhorst got the club back to winning ways against Sparta Prague in midweek. But Martindale said: “I knew it would be difficult for Rangers at Hampden last week. “They lost six members of staff and that’s a big ask for any club. I wouldn’t have allowed it here. If they’d kept some of the backroom staff there wouldn’t have been a massive upheaval for the semifinal, Sparta and the game here. “It would have been a huge kick in the stomach for the players to lose Gerrard. It came out of the blue and happened so quickly.” Martindale expects new boss van Bronckhorst’s side to have plenty of appetite today. But he FREE FOR ALL the new system tried out by boss Van Bronckhorst (right) has given Aribo (left) a wide ranging role and (below) Miller with Allan McGregor also says his Livi players are hungry to pull off another shock after beating Celtic in September. He said: “Gio will know about Livingston, he’s played in Scottish football before. “He’ll know what to expect when Rangers are playing the underdogs. And he’s coming to an arena where we’re confident of taking points off anyone.” MARTINDALE shock DOUBLE Morelos Change of mood for Alfie ■ Fraser Mackie Mark Hateley hopes a debut double under Gio van Bronckhorst will revitalise moody Alfredo Morelos. The Ibrox icon admits it’s a guessing game after this season’s dip in form. Morelos bagged his eighth and ninth goals of the campaign as Gers qualified from their Europa League group with victory over Sparta Prague. Now Hateley hopes van Bronckhorst and new striker coach Roy Makaay can find the key to more consistency for Morelos. He said: “Where is Alfredo in his Rangers career? You had better ask him that but he took his chances against Sparta Prague. The first goal was very good and that set him up for his performance. “To get one inside 15 minutes is perfect for any striker and that’s how it worked out for Alfredo. His start to the game allowed him to build. “He did the right things, got his goals and the advice I would give to him is keep focusing on that. “One of Giovanni’s biggest tasks is to get Alfredo back to his best. He will be looking to get all the Rangers players hitting the standards of last season. “He’s one of those players who has to be kept under a tight rein but it’s up to the Rangers staff to do that. Can Roy Makaay do it? Good luck to Roy!” Hateley, speaking to promote his book ‘Hitting The Mark’, says Morelos has left himself open to criticism. He said: “He’s raised the bar so high everyone expects him to follow that. “You’re expected to hit that bar again and go over. “The fans have seen how good he can be and they expect Alfredo to go again.” ●Hitting The Mark by Mark Hateley with Alistair Aird.

He will demand that they postpone the fixtures of top clubs including Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk – the clubs most of the national side play for – before they travel to Scotland to prepare for the semi-final. He said: “I have asked the Premier League to move the games involving our players for a couple of weeks ahead of the match in Scotland. “I don’t want to cause too much disruption because it’s important the managers of the clubs are behind us. “But I think we should have as long as we can to prepare. “We want to fly to Scotland earlier, start training and wait there for our players who play in Europe. “I will leave the task of finding a good base and training facilities to our administrators.

web Lewis Ferguson is delighted to have a former Celtic captain lining up beside him today at Parkhead. But the Aberdeen midfielder admits the current Hoops skipper is just as tough to play against. The 22-year-old admits it will feel a bit odd turning up in Glasgow’s east end with Scott Brown on the same side as him for once. But even together for the Dons, Ferguson knows they’ll have their work cut out trying to stop Callum McGregor running the show for the Hoops. He’s got to know the Celtic captain much better this season by training and playing with him in the Scotland squad. Ferguson believes he’s underappreciated for club and country and says no one should doubt McGregor’s ability. He has filled Brown’s boots at Parkhead since the legendary No.8 left for Pittodrie in the summer. And the Aberdeen ace knows that if he’s to fulfil his own potential at club and international level, McGregor is a standard bearer. As he prepared for the trip to Celtic Park this afternoon, Ferguson said: “It will be strange going there with Scott on my side. We’re so used to him being on the opposite team when we go to that stadium. “I’m sure it’ll be a bit strange for him too. But he’s been good for us. “He’s an experienced guy who played at the top level, hundreds of games, Champions League, winning trophies – he’s done everything in Scottish football. “So to have somebody like that next to you can’t do any harm, only good. “He’s always on at me but that makes me a better player and a better person.” So who is harder to play against, Brown or McGregor? Ferguson said: “I don’t want to answer that! Callum’s a really good player. “For the last three years, I’ve played directly against him. “And he’s pretty under-rated in what he does. He’s such a good footballer who rarely gives the ball away. “He’s so neat and tidy, he’s quick and gets about the pitch. Everything about him is top class. So it will be a difficult game against him. “I rate him so highly, as everybody in Scotland should. Callum goes under the radar a bit. Playing for Celtic, the forward players get more of the credit and the plaudits when they’re winning. “With Scotland it’s maybe the same. But he does his job and executes game plans perfectly. He’s just a really good midfield player and a tough opponent. “Callum is a starter for Scotland in most games so that’s the standard I need to reach. I look up to guys like him and think, ‘That’s Scott McDermott the level.’ He’s the benchmark I need to reach to become a starter for my country. “Going away with Scotland has helped me. Training with these guys, I’m in with loads of big names, some top-class Premier League players. “You see their habits even away from training, like in the gym, when you’re in their company. “They’re at the level I want to reach. It gives me an insight into what it takes to get there. Hopefully I can pick up some of those habits. “But the only way I get in the Scotland squad is by performing well for Aberdeen.” And going up against Celtic normally brings out the best in Ferguson. He has already scored FIVE goals against the Hoops – but is still without a win. He’s praying that changes this afternoon and, after an up and down campaign for Stephen Glass’ side so far, he wants a win over the Hoops to spark a run of good results. Ferguson said: “It’s always difficult against them, especially going down to Parkhead. “But I’m positive we can go there and get a result. I’ve scored plenty of goals against them but never been on the winning side. That just shows the attacking threat they have. “They always carry that and their front three at the moment are certainly producing. “We need to keep them quiet and be good defensively. Hopefully I can get another goal and maybe we can win this time.” The Dons have lost their last two games against Motherwell and Dundee United after looking to have turned a corner again. And Ferguson knows they need to start putting a run of wins together to climb back up the Premiership table. He said: “Our consistency as a team has to turn now. We had a good start to the season before hitting a bad patch. “We’ve shown good signs but the results have dropped off. We now need to go on a run where we pick up points. “And that needs to start now. We’ve managed to do better in the bigger games this season so we need the same this time.” Aberdeen scored twice early at Ibrox against Rangers last month but had to settle for a 2-2 draw. Ferguson doesn’t doubt they can cause Celtic problems but if they’re going to take anything back to the Granite City, they’ll have to be solid defensively against the likes of in-form Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota. He said: “The gaffer will have a plan for us to execute. But we need to be strong defensively, as you have to be in every game against Celtic. “Their front players are a threat so we need to be 100 per cent concentrated if we’re going to get anything. “Offensively, we can score against any team. But it’s the defence we need to focus on if we’re going to get a good result.” AS DONS WERE ON TRACK scrutinised. You don’t enjoy defeats. But any time you win is brilliant and we want that more often. “I am enjoying all aspects of it and I want to keep it going.” Glass oversaw an overhaul of the Dons squad in the summer and would like to tinker with it again in January if they can do a bit of player trading. He said: “We’ll do bits and pieces, depending on some of the lads who have not been playing asking away or other clubs liking them. There won’t be huge changes like in the summer but we would like to do something. “Experienced managers talk about the number of transfer windows. “We had one where the recruitment fell on us and it’s important we continue to build the club and change the age profile.” Glass has stuck to his beliefs, even during that sticky spell, which is something Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou is renowned for. The Aussie won’t change his philosophy for anyone and Glass admires him for it. He said: “Ange is clearly a top manager, he’s shown that. “He’s come into a different environment altogether and is handling everything thrown at him. And there’s been a lot. “It’s good to see someone who believes in themselves that much doing well. “We had a few words after the last game we played and he was supportive of me as well.” Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 69 Michael Gannon Fun’s over when idiot fans dabble in the dark arts There’s always a certain unspoken admiration for the dark arts in football. It might not be politically correct to admit it but we all take a wee knowing nod when you see a skilled wind-up merchant manage to get one of his rivals to lose the nut. We’ll see one of the masters at Parkhead today when Scott Brown returns to his long-time home with Aberdeen. The former Celtic skipper was so good at getting under the skin of opponents he could have worn some of them as a house coat. Countless times have we seen opposition players lose their marbles against Brown and end up getting themselves booked or even sent off. The Alfredo Morelos incident at Celtic Park a few years ago was the great example. The Rangers man blew a gasket eventually and the Hoops captain was left trying to stifle his sniggers as his foe marched up the tunnel. It’s all part of the game. You see it all the time. A player is on the end of a bad tackle and yet he’s the one who ends up soaking in the early bath. These guys are human and they all have a breaking point. But what isn’t on is fans being allowed to influence the matches and the referees. Which is why Bobby Madden sending Funso Ojo off for Aberdeen wasn’t just a daft call. It was dangerous. The brain-dead Dundee United fan who allegedly shoved the Dons player might have been slapped with a ban but he ended up the winner. Ojo showed amazing restraint not to knock the clown out of his Sports Direct trackies but even going back to confront him was enough to get a second yellow and a red card. It’s bonkers. The decision was a dud in the first place but the SFA not scrapping it in the aftermath has just opened the doors to the idiot factory. What’s to stop other fans trying it on now? Your team is a goal down and the game is being bossed by a rival’s star man. He comes over to take a throw in, so what do you do? Let’s give him a shove and see if he reacts. Boom. Man down, game changed. It’s not on. No one is saying players should be allowed to lamp anyone who dares go near them from the stands. But at the same time they need to know they will be It’s bonkers .. what’s to stop other fans from trying it? It’s not on BROWN wind-up master OJO victim in United game protected by the men in the middle. It’s the same with abuse. Players can cop sickening stick from fans for 90 minutes but if they dare to turn around and ram up a middle finger, they are the ones who end up with first dabs on the team shampoo. We’ve got this upside down. Players are told they need to be mindful of their actions on the pitch as it can have consequences on the terraces. But it also works the other way around. Officials have to take into account the behaviour of the buffoons on the sidelines before they enforce the letter of the law. The SFA will say their hands were tied over Ojo. Gie’s peace. Our lot make up rules on the hoof whenever it suits them. They’ve bent the rule book so much over the years it’s a miracle the pages haven’t fallen out. Scottish football is a fierce environment. Our grounds can be angry bear pits at the best of times and you’ve got to give credit to our players for being able to keep their cool pretty much all of the time. In any other walk of life we would be scraping them off the cobbles after some of the carry on they need to suffer. So let’s support them. Leave the dark arts to the masters on the pitch and keep the dimwits out of the equation.

The Celtic skipper said: “We want to keep the momentum going because this is a really important period for us. “When you get to the end of November and December, there are so many games. You get them coming at you every three or four days. “This is always a part of the season we look at and think, if we can go really strong between now and the break, hopefully we’ll be in a good position at the callum McGregor will walk out with Scott brown at Parkhead carrying wreaths in memory of european cup winner bertie auld today. The current Celtic captain reckons that, in future, his predecessor will be hailed alongside the club’s most iconic players. McGregor took the armband from Brown in the summer when the legendary Hoops midfielder moved on to Aberdeen. The Scotland star admits he’s trying to emulate his former team-mate in the role as Celtic’s leader, while at the same time being his own man. But McGregor knows that with a trophy haul of 22 in a decade at the club, Brown will forever be revered by supporters, just like the late, great Auld. As he prepared to go to battle with Brown for Premiership points this afternoon, the Celtic skipper said: “Myself and Scott were always talking when he was here. “He was brilliant for me when I was coming through in terms of always giving me any help he could. “Then over the last few years we got really close. “He was such a great leader so there were always bits where I’d try and learn from what he would do in any given situation. “But at the same time I’d try to put my own spin on it as well. “Do I copy anything he did? Just the way he led. He was always such a presence in our changing room. “He took responsibility for the players on his shoulders and just let everyone else go and play. I think that’s Calmac and Broonie will jointly pay tribute to Auld Scott Mcdermott important, that the boys feel they have a go-to guy. “I will take the responsibility and let them play, let them enjoy their football. “That was something Scott was very good at, being that focal point in the dressing room. “He’s coming back to Celtic Park for the first time since he left and as a club we also want to show our appreciation for Bertie and what he did for Celtic. It will be a great tribute. “We’ll be trying to create a special atmosphere for him and then we need to try to match that with the result. “It will be a big occasion for Scott as well. He was hugely successful here, a real legend for the club as well. “So it’s fitting that we’re able to honour Bertie with one of our other greats. “Although, for us, we have to look at the game itself because we need three points. “That means trying to take the emotion out of it as much as possible to focus on what we need to do. “Once the game is over we will have a chat but for the 90 minutes both of us will be doing everything we can to win the game for our respective teams.” If Celtic are going to take all three points from Stephen Glass’ side, they’ll need one of their current experienced heads to be at his best again. Goalkeeper Joe Hart is vice-captain to McGregor and is gradually becoming a key figure in Ange Postecoglou’s dressing-room. In Thursday night’s Europa League defeat to Bayer Leverkusen, the former Manchester City and England No.1 pulled off a couple of outstanding stops to keep his side in the game. For the first time since Fraser Forster left, it feels like Celtic have a keeper they can rely on to produce Scott was such a great leader and presence in the changing room big moments at crucial times. McGregor says Hart has brought the same kind of quality as Forster who became a huge favourite during five years with the Hoops. He said: “Joe is massive for us and made two huge saves in Germany against Leverkusen. “Celtic have a history of having brilliant keepers, it’s something which is pretty synonymous with the club. “If we mention Fraser Forster, I’d say Joe is of a similar stature. “He’s a really experienced player so POSTECOGLOU goal turn of the year. We are trying to build momentum, in terms of performances and results. “During this period you’re in a cycle of play, recover, then play again. “But if you can get into that pattern, the team is feeling good and you’re getting results, it can quite quickly snowball into real momentum. “That’s something we’ve always tried to do here and I’m pretty sure we’ll be trying to do it this time around as well.” When asked about closing the gap on Rangers, McGregor insists it’s about taking Postecoglou’s message on board. He said: “We just have to look at what we are doing. “We’re a relatively new team with a lot of new players. We focus on trying to improve. If we do that, we’ll try and make sure we take maximum points. “There are a lot of big games coming up and we want as many wins on the board as we can.” It’s fitting we’re able to honour wee Bertie with one of Celtic’s other greats we didn’t really worry about him in terms of him settling into the team. “He’s at a good age, he’s a good personality as well so it’s great to see him doing so well here. “I’m sure he’ll always be pushing to get better. That’s the same for all the players, we’re always trying to improve and I’m sure Joe will be exactly the same.” The 3-2 loss in the BayArena condemned Celtic to the Europa Conference League, which at least gives them big games on the continent after Christmas. With the Premier Sports Cup Final on December 19 and the task of catching Rangers in the title race, there’s plenty to keep Postecoglou’s men busy. A n d McGregor, who has been there, seen it and done it at Parkhead, would not have it any other way. He said: “It’s full on for us now. The Conference League will be another big challenge when that comes around and we have a big cup final to look forward to next month. “That will be exciting for the players and the manager as well and everyone here is looking forward to it. “But we’re Celtic and you should always want to be playing in big games.” LIONS LEGEND Auld was Celts hero

web Sunday Mail November 28, 2021 71 UP FOR THE CUPS McGregor and Brown savour Scottish Cup glory in their last season together and the Hoops captain says he learned so much from his old team-mate about how to handle role GOOD SIGNS Faddy coached McLeish’s Scots Clarke going for long haul current group of players so highly, he’s adamant a World Cup spot can trigger regular appearances at major tournaments again. Faddy, who won 48 caps for Scotland, said: “Ukraine are a team we can beat. They did alright at the Euros last summer but it’s a game we can go into with real confidence that we can win. “Steve has done brilliantly to get a real spirit within the squad because the talent has always been there. “They’ve really grown in the last year to 18 months. My fear after the Euros was that was it. “But the performances since have shown the players have actually kicked on. The squad has got stronger. “We’ve got competition in every position now. And when you’re winning games confidence is easier to find. We’ve got a belief and a swagger now. “We’re getting better and the squad is at a good age. There’s definitely another couple of tournaments at least in this squad. I don’t have any fear against Ukraine. I’m confident we can get the job done.” McFadden was part of Alex McLeish’s backroom team before the manager was replaced by Clarke in 2019. A damaging 3-0 defeat in Kazakhstan signalled the end of their dugout reign. But Faddy swears that even at that low ebb he could see the makings of a talented side. Clarke has developed and improved the players as well as recruiting the likes of Lyndon Dykes and Che Adams. Faddy said: “I saw a group of players who had obvious talent. And I had confidence in their FROM BACK PAGE ability. When I worked there, if we could get our best players on the pitch we got good results. “People say you should be beating Israel and Albania but we still had to do it. I always felt we had the players. I always believed in them but it was whether they believed in themselves. “I get battered for it but I’m a Scotland fan and I want the team to do well. And genuinely I had a belief that if they could find that spirit and willingness to turn up every time we would get the rewards. “They don’t look for excuses now. These boys are there every time and want to do well. “Getting strikers in has been massive. Lyndon does the stuff people take for granted up front but the criticism of him and Che was they wouldn’t score enough goals. “But Lyndon got four in a row then Che got two on the spin. That’s because the manager believes in them and has stuck by them.” Clarke has revealed it’s unlikely he’ll be able to get his squad together for a training camp before the play-offs. The manager said: “It’s very difficult to get the players away outside the international windows. I don’t think it’s realistic. “I might try and get round a few of them.” ● James McFadden was attending the Scottish FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards.

sunday maIl SEVEN DAYS novemBer 28, 2021 3 I’ve just ordered a pack of about 10,000 Christmas cards designed by none other than my son Junior and I can’t wait to send them out. Every year, the kids work in secret to design their own card in school and, like any proud mum, I order way too many and take pride in sending one to every person I know. It’s such a wonderful tradition Jean Johansson tv presenter and gIrl aBout town follow jean on twitter @jean johansson and a big part of getting in to the festive spirit so I can’t believe there are people who think Christmas cards should be a thing of the past. I’ve cottoned on to recyclable materials and I often buy charity cards so I’m moving with the times but to send a e-greeting, or no card at all, is a step too far and a sad day. I still have an address book I’ll never tIre of new trend Apparently the dark circles under my eyes have become a new Tik Tok trend. Believe it or not, I can bin the concealer and walk around looking absolutely knackered and no one will bat an eyelid. Social media users are intentionally painting dark circles using eye shadow and I couldn’t be happier to be bang-on trend for once. One user decided to embrace the look after struggling with dark shadows for years and, weirdly, the trend has taken off around the world. Go figure. Apparently the secret is to swipe a bit of colour under the eye then smudge it for a subtle effect. Well, I’m achieving that look naturally on a daily basis. Over the past few weeks, I’ve filmed a Place in The Sun in France, travelled to Belfast for Celeb Mastermind, recorded a Christmas show for Channel 5 in Manchester and filmed a Hogmanay show in Glasgow – I’m exhausted, and now I can proudly show it off. I’m delighted Lawrence beat me in awards Race Drag queen is worthy Bafta winner I had a wonderful time at the Scottish Baftas last week and although I didn’t win, I was honoured to see my name up there with stars such as David Tennant and Martin Compston. It was a smaller ceremony than usual but there was plenty of showbiz and Hollywood glamour on show at the BBC Scotland reception. It was great to see Edith Bowman take the helm as host in a chilled and friendly atmosphere with guests enjoying a catch up and mingling with other humans after last year’s virtual event. I sampled a couple of glasses of champagne and giggled backstage with star of Netflix hit Sex Education, Ncuti Gatwa, and I had a total fan girl chrIstmas cards are stIll a claus for joy and I ‘ll pop a bit of Michael Bublé on while I look people up, write a heartfelt messages and stick a stamp on an envelope. What’s wrong with that? I feel absolute joy when I receive a card and I love lining them up on the fireplace. Call me old fashioned but that’s what Christmas is all about. moment when I bumped in to Mission Impossible 2 star Dougray Scott (he’s as handsome in real life). When the Audience Award came around, I enjoyed the clip of me presenting A Place In The Sun and I allowed myself to digest all the nice things that were said about me. I’ll probably never be nominated again so I had to enjoy the moment. There was absolutely no disappointment not to win, the competition was fierce and I’m honestly thrilled that Ru Paul’s Drag Race winner Lawrence Chaney took the prize. The “Favourite Scot on Screen Award” is so special because it was voted by you and I think it’s huge that a larger-than-life drag queen sashayed away with the trophy. I will now forever be known as “Bafta-nominated Jean Johansson” and that’s good enough for me. let’s drInk to phone-free puBs I think digital detox areas in pubs are a great idea. I love a selfie and posting pics on a glam night out but for a catch-up with friends down the local boozer, I could really do without a handset. I also hate being out with people who are constantly on their phones, there’s nothing ruder than someone scrolling or posting while you’re trying to have a conversation with them. We need to start engaging with each other uninterrupted again. When we go out, my son Junior will often say to me, “No phones, mum” and that’s when I know I’m spending too much time on it. I must admit I’m guilty of doing a “check –in”, taking pics of my food, paying with my phone and posting about the experience. My habits are just different now. I used to love going to the pub on a Sunday and taking my time reading all the weekend papers, eating, chatting to folk and just hanging around. Those were the days. This week TV presenter Jeremy Vine found himself in a quiet pub where customers are asked to put their phones away and I reckon it could catch on. The pandemic has given people tech fatigue and now that we’re doing everything on handsets, a few hours without them would surely do the world of good. In fact, studies show taking a break from tech can boost overall wellbeing and help fight sleep disorders, anxiety and depression. Bring back darts, pub quizzes and pool tables I say and make more pubs a phone-free zone.

4 SEVENDAYS@SUNDAYMAIL.CO.UK I sleep like I’m in a coffin with false lashes on Oops, we think we’ve triggered Amanda Holden. Our phone alarm has just gone off accidentally mid-interview and she’s covering her ears. “That’s sending shivers down my spine, it’s my wake-up call,” she laughed. Like every weekday, Amanda’s been up since 4.30am for her Heart Radio breakfast show – but you’d never guess. Not only is she sparky and chatty, she’s rolled out of bed looking glamorous. “I sleep in a false lash, I sleep like I’m in a coffin,” she said, crossing her arms like Dracula. “I get up as late as I can and turn it round in 20 minutes.” Today, Amanda is lending her pizazz to a new job, as the face of Charles Worthington London. It’s a result all round as she now has “boxes” of the hair brand she, husband Chris Hughes and daughters Alexa, 15, and Hollie, nine, have loved for years. “I use the Volume & Bounce hairspray every day, because there are always paps waiting – it’s always a red carpet day for me,” she said. “So I have to maintain. But I’m a girl who maintains for her own dignity anyway.” And it’s not just her blow-dry she’s holding on to with aplomb. Aged 50, Amanda has never looked better, felt happier or been more in demand. Here, she gives us the lowdown on everything from beauty, love and family life to Britain’s Got Talent… Congratulations on landing your first hair campaign… Good things come to those who wait. It’s something I’ve always wanted. I’ve watched my peers doing it and thought, ‘Gosh, it’s never going to happen to me. I’m 50 and it’s passed me by’. But this is the perfect marriage with Charles Worthington. They know what they’re doing, I know what I’m doing BGT judge and radio DJ Amanda Holden on rolling out of bed looking great at 4.30am and her plans for Christmas work mode With fellow BGT judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell and on her radio show Lynne HyLand and 50 doesn’t really mean anything any more. I look at women like J Lo, Kylie and Jennifer Aniston turning that age and being so amazing. It’s the new 30. Did you have any wobbles at the milestone? No, I think I had more of a wobble when I turned 30. I got divorced and I was like, ‘S***, I’m 30. I’m supposed to be having children and stuff’. But at 50, I think I was just in such a good place. I just went, ‘Yeah, I’m 50, I feel fabulous and I just don’t care’. What makes you so happy right now? My family, being in love, having good people in my life that look after me. My husband – God, we are different people but he is my biggest, proudest champion. He’s not a yes man, but he is “Go, Mandy” all the time, so it’s just wonderful. ` Not many people use the phrase “in love” after 13 years of marriage.. Oh, I really fancy Chris. We’ll be in a restaurant, he’ll go to the loo, then I’ll look up, catch a glimpse of a man and think, ‘He’s fit’ – and then realise, ‘That’s my husband! I still fancy him!’ He challenges me and I challenge him and I think that’s the secret to a good marriage. He must fancy you too. For starters, you seem to be ageing in reverse… I have been called Mandy Button in the past, which is such a flattering thing. It’s brilliant. I do look after myself. I run, I do yoga, I’m a vegetarian. But I do love a drink. I don’t deny myself anything. After lockdown and us all being denied our freedoms, I just think, ‘Don’t deny yourself now, just enjoy life’. Everything in moderation but if you want a glass of wine or a doughnut, have one. Life is too short. I’m not one of those all or nothing people. I can’t live like that. What’s your skincare secret? The biggest thing for me is not using the same product all the time, I try to change everything up at least every three to four months. I also have a treatment called Morpheus Eight, which is basically stamping your face to make the collagen rush to it and give everything a lift. It’s amazing. Did you really miss not being able to have clinic treatments last year? It was massages I missed more than facials. I just missed going to a professional, rather than my husband doing it with strings attached. He’s really good at massage but that always comes at a price... You work it out [laughs]. It’s lucky you fancy him then… [Laughs even more] He’s got very strong thumbs. Would you ever consider

I missed having professional massages, rather than my husband doing it with strings attached. It always comes at a price... SUNDAY MAIL SEVEN DAYS NOVEMBER 28, 2021 5 quality time With hubby Chris and daughters Hollie and Lexi having any cosmetic surgery? I don’t know because my gene pool is a good gene pool. I’m really lucky. We’ve got big cheeks in our family and good jawlines. So I think as long as that’s all staying like that, I don’t mind. I don’t think I look 50 but I don’t think I look 30. I just like people saying I look good for my age and that’s how I’d like it to continue regardless of if I’m 60, 70, 80, whatever. I’d like to be going, ‘I’m 95, you know’. No plans to give up on the maintenance then? No but Chris and I always say, ‘Shall we go to seed in our 70s and just eat and drink what we want?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know, babe. We’ll make a decision then’. I keep thinking I’ll be retired but I probably won’t be, I enjoy it all too much. I’ll slow down a bit and hopefully have some grandchildren by then. I don’t want my kids to wait until they’re nearly 40 as I’ll be dead. Are you still ambitious? I think “ambition” has often been a word you would use to describe a female baddie in a novel, someone conniving. But I think it’s a positive word. I’m still striving for more, even though loads of my ambitions have been fulfilled. I’ve pitched something that’ll hopefully be done by the BBC. Any big plans for Christmas? We’re going away for Christmas for the first time, to the Caribbean, just me, Chris and the kids. It’s something I’ve always said I wouldn’t do but I got so cross with lockdown, I just don’t want to be here. I want to be in the warm. My teenager will hate it but it will probably be the last one I get her. She’ll be off with friends soon. Your girls are growing up so fast. How does it feel? It’s horrible it goes so quickly. I look back at gorgeous pictures and think, ‘I really didn’t appreciate them when they were young’. Lexi is taller than me now and a beautiful girl. She’s confident but quiet and studious – not got into any kind of mishaps yet. And Hollie is a mini-me. She’s a complete fairy – she dances and sings at every opportunity. We’re really lucky. We’ve got two really good, healthy, gorgeous girls but time is our greatest enemy. That’s why I make every second count. We’re excited about the return of I’ve been called Mandy Button in the past, which is such a flattering thing. Britain’s Got Talent... It’s always my January and it’s so great to have it back – hopefully in the correct way. Let’s just get rid of the masks, get the people in the audience. If people can go back to the theatre, they can come back to Britain’s Got Talent. Are you looking forward to outraging viewers with your outfits? I laugh at how a bit of side boob can cause such a furore. I find it funny. We should be able to dress how we want. There’s no interpretation. I’m not sexy, it’s everyone else sexualising. I think I was the top complaint until Piers Morgan overtook me. Damn. Your side boob is officially less offensive than Piers storming off Good Morning Britain... I would much rather people be offended by how I look than by how I speak – 100 per cent.

RIGHT AT HOME Apple of my eye Jewish fruit cake is one of the most delicious treats I’ve made in years Jewish apple cake INGREDIENTS •2 tsp cinnamon •5 level tbsp caster sugar •3 apples, peeled, cored and chopped into small dice •200g sugar •100g soft butter •150g full-fat soft cheese, at room temperature •1 tsp vanilla •2 eggs, lightly beaten with a fork •200g self-raising flour •¼ tsp salt Please send your favourite recipes to When I asked my friend about this week’s column and what she looks forward to most about eating, the answer was swift – doughnuts. I was hoping for a secret family recipe or top tips for other Jewish treats but, no, she immediately went full Homer Simpson, wanting nothing other than a doughnut. Today marks the start of Hanukkah, which is Hebrew for “dedication”, and is also known as the Festival of Lights. It commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrian Greek Army and the miracle of rededication of the Holy Temple and restoring its menorah, or lamp. The miracle was that only one vial of oil was found with just enough for one day and yet it lasted for eight full days. Many of the foods eaten now when families celebrate the festival are fried – latkes and my friend’s doughnuts – to commemorate the oil. But it was while I was researching all the treats that I stumbled across another amazing Jewish apple cake, which has quickly become one of my favourites. It’s made with cream cheese which gives it a fresh and soft texture. Studded with little pieces of apple, it makes ones of the most delicious and moist cakes I’ve made in years. Everyone has a favourite apple cake recipe, whether a quick Dutch one or a more refined Normandy tart with perfectly sliced and crisp apples. The trick with this one is to leave it for a while in the tin but try to taste while still warm. It keeps really well too in a cake tin. METHOD 1Preheat the oven to 170C, gas mark 4. Grease a 10in spring form cake tin. 2Mix the cinnamon and caster sugar together in a small bowl. Set aside with the apples. 3Using an electric whisk, beat the sugar with the butter and cheese until smooth. Add the vanilla and gradually add the eggs. 4Add the flour and salt and two tablespoons of the cinnamonsugar mix. Blend together before folding in the apples. The mix will be quite stiff. 5Scrape into the tin and level out. Sprinkle over the remaining cinnamon sugar and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. 6Allow to cool in the tin for 30 minutes, then remove.

18 SEVENDAYS@SUNDAYMAIL.CO.UK With Aldo Zilli Blackberry and apple Eve’s pudding cake SLOW- COOKED LAMB RAGU INGREDIENTS Serves 6 • 4 tablespoons olive oil • 4 cloves garlic, crushed • 1 onion, finely chopped • 1 stick of celery, finely chopped • 1 carrot, coarsley grated • 1 tsp dried oregano • ½ tsp dried rosemary • ½ tsp smoked paprika • 1 tsp fennel seeds • ½ tsp crushed chillies • 2 bay leaves • 800g lamb shoulder or leg, diced • 2 x 400g can chopped tomatoes • 350ml chicken or lamb stock • 50ml dry white wine • 1 tsp red currant jelly • 1 tsp mint sauce • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce • Grinding of pepper • 600g pasta • Salt and pepper to taste METHOD 1In a large pan, gently fry the onion, celery and garlic in the olive oil to soften for about 5 minutes. 2Add the carrot and rosemary, oregano, fennel seeds, bay leaves, chilli and paprika, cook for another 2 minutes, stirring, then add the lamb. Cook for a few minutes, colouring the meat on all sides. 3Add the tomatoes, stock, white wine, mint sauce, redcurrant jelly, Worcestershire sauce and season with salt and pepper. 4Give it a good stir and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down, cover with the lid and very gently simmer for about 2 hours until the meat is falling apart. 5Stir occasionally and if it is getting too dry, top up with a little water. Add more salt and pepper if necessary. Cook the pasta as per the 6 packet instructions in boiling salted water, then drain, reserving some of the cooking liquid. Toss the pasta with the sauce, adding some pasta water if it’s too thick. 7Serve with freshly grated pecorino over the top. Ragu can mix it up with lamb MICHAEL KILKIE My top tip How did your lamb ragu go? Let us know. Feedback, questions or favourite tips? Get in touch @michaelkilkie Spaghetti bolognese is without a doubt the most famous ragu in the UK. A ragu is basically a meatbased sauce, which could mean beef as in a bolognese, sausages, pork, veal or indeed a mixture of more than one meat. However, today I’m using lamb, which makes an incredible ragu. Unlike a traditional bolognese, I’m not using mince, I’m actually using chunks of lamb that are cooked low and slow and begin to break up and become incredibly tender. Most of the ingredients are pretty traditional in terms of how you make a ragu – the building blocks of onion, celery, carrot and garlic are in there, more commonly known as sofrito. This is the base of most soups, stews and ragus in Italy, and across the world. I called them the building blocks and that’s because they are the foundation of a really good flavour base. There are however a few ingredients in there that you might think look a little out of place, especially if you’re comparing this to the bolognese you usually make. Mint sauce and redcurrant jelly are the most obvious, and possibly Worcestershire sauce, but they all make perfect sense when you think about about it because of their affinity with lamb. The flavour pairings are tried and tested and we know they work. You can serve any pasta you like with the ragu but I think pappardelle and spaghetti are best for this kind of sauce. And, remember, always keep back some cooking water from the pasta to help loosen the ragu to the desired consistency if it’s a little too thick and tight. Finally, I like to grate over pecorino instead of parmesan, just because it’s a sheep’s cheese but it’s up to you. Although the thought of mint with the pasta may seem a bit odd, it really works as lamb is obviously the main component of the dish. So when serving the pasta, why not try finishing with some fresh chopped mint? It’s deceivingly good. This blackberry and apple Eve’s pudding cake is pure comfort food on a dark, cold day – and so easy to whip up. INGREDIENTS SERVES 8 •500g Jazz apples, peeled, cored and sliced •50g soft brown sugar •125g unsalted butter •125g caster sugar •2 eggs •125g self-raising flour To serve: •A handful of blackberries and as much double cream as you like Method 1Put the sliced apples in a shallow ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the brown sugar. 2Cream the butter and caster sugar until fluffy. Add one egg and mix. Add the other egg and half the flour and mix again. 3Add the rest of the flour and a tablespoon of warm water and mix until everything is combined. 4Pour the mixture over the apples and bake for 40 minutes at 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4 until golden brown in colour. 5To serve, mash up a handful of the blackberries in a bowl and add to the double cream. Mix in and drizzle on top of the cake. For more information on Jazz apples, visit

19 natural hideaway An arch can create sheltered seating fill in the cracks What should we use to fill hairline cracks on a pebble-dashed external wall? If it’s pebble dash, you will notice the repair and the only way to hide it is to paint the wall afterwards. The way we used to fill in cracks like this was to mix up a slurry mix of sand and cement and brush it into the crack – it really was as simple as that. However, now I use a product called Toupret Touprelith masonry repair or Toupret Mur Ex. Again, you just brush these products into the pebble dash. You can get both products from Crown Decorating Centres. Shining example Our black polished tiles have paler stains on them, maybe from cleaning fluids. Any ideas on removing stains and bringing back the shine? I have mentioned this product a few times because it’s the best stone/ceramic cleaner I have used. Lithofin Tile Polish will bring your tiles back to life and they also have a product called Lithofin Intensive Cleaner, which you can use before you apply the polish. Also take a look at Lithofin Stain Stop. CuttIng-In BrusH This is a paint brush for applying gloss, eggshell, satinwood etc and it’s called a cutting-in brush because the bristles are at an angle, allowing you to cut the paint into a fine line without using masking tape. Crown Decorating Centres sell these for under £5. stay high & dry After getting mould on an outside bedroom wall, I fitted a 6in air vent. However, when it is cold I still get condensation a foot from the bottom of the wall. It is cavity insulated with a double radiator on the other outside wall. Would insulation plasterboard on this wall stop the condensation? Yes, I think insulating the wall will solve the problem. Condensation only occurs when warm moist air hits a cold surface, so insulation will stop it from getting cold and keep the wall above the ‘dew point’. Once the wall is at room temperature, the insulation will prevent it from getting cold even once the radiator is turned off. Have you got a question for Donny?

You can grow your own withies (long, slim, willow wands that behave like huge hardwood cuttings) from shrubby willows already growing in your garden. Alternatively, buy them ready to use from specialist suppliers. They are available between January and March but it’s best to order now. Which willow? Most of the willows grown for basket-making are suitable – normally Salix viminalis cultivars. When the plants are cut down, they generate long, straight, slim stems that are ideal for the job. Some specialist nurseries can also supply more unusual varieties with coloured bark. Shrubby garden willows with coloured stems such as Salix alba ‘Britzensis’ can be used for making smaller living sculptures. Weeping willows are not suitable. grow your own withies Plant a suitable willow in naturally damp ground. Allow a year to get it established, then in late March cut the whole plant down to about 4-6in and mulch generously. Feed well in April or May and long straight stems will soon be produced. Allow these to grow for two or three years before harvesting them. Cut them off WilloW talk tunnel vision Woven willow can make a sculpture or tunnel 4-6in above ground level any time between January and late March. Use your withies as soon as possible after cutting as they may not take root if they dry out too much. Prepare the soil Mark out the site for your living willow structure. Clear the ground of grass, weeds and large stones, then work in plenty of well-rotted compost. Make sure to leave the soil soft enough to push cuttings into. Make a living arch Choose the longest withies you can get and plant a row 4-6in apart along each side of the arch. Allow them to grow straight up, then when they are a foot or so beyond the height you want, bend the tops over and tie them in place to form the top of the arch. When side shoots start to grow, clip regularly so they thicken and make a more solid-looking arch. Make a tunnel Mark out a straight central path that will go through the middle of your tunnel – prepare beds of soil along either side and plant a pair of very long withies, one on each side of the arch. Continue, spacing each pair a foot or 18in apart. When they reach the required height, bend them over and tie them together in the centre to make a series of arches. Then tie long, straight, strong, dry willow stems horizontally along the top and sides of the arches to join them and stiffen the structure. Once the willow stems are rooted and well established, side shoots will need trimming off to maintain a neat shape. Make an arbour Mark out a circle large enough to put a seat inside and prepare the soil round the edges. Push in long willow withies every 4-6in to make a single or double row around the outside, leaving a gap for a wide entrance. When the stems have rooted and grow tall enough, tie them together at the top so they form a domed roof. Clip the sides once side shoots start to grow to keep a nice tight shape.

■ SCOTLAND’S uLTimATe GuiDe TO GOiNG OuT .. AND STAyiNG iN Playing a Whiley game DJ Jo has ensured fans of all ages and musical tastes Sunday Mail INSIDE NEwmuSIcmovIESgarrySpENcEgamESgIgS

32 the big one I want crowd no ordinary jo The DJ and presenter is helping music fans break free from two very hard years Jo Whiley is on a mission to make everyone happy on her uplifting 90s Anthems tour Jo Whiley is, quite simply, the voice of British music. Her legendary Evening Session Radio 1 show from 1993 with Steve Lamacq brought so many new and exciting sounds into our teenage bedrooms for such a long time that it’s hard to hear those songs without remembering her as the friendly gatekeeper to these fresh musical treasures. Little wonder, then, that her 90s Anthems tour – coming to Glasgow and Edinburgh next May – is a ray of sunshine looming on the horizon of the Covid-ravaged postlockdown world. The concept is gloriously simple – Jo DJs on stage, blasting out her favourite anthems of the decade. Nostalgic crowds go wild – however, interestingly, since the lockdowns, Jo is seeing a much younger crowd in front of her going crazy to songs that they are too young to even remember. Jo said: “We started the tour about four years ago but for two years of lockdown we couldn’t go out and gig. “It’s been fascinating seeing how the audience has changed – there is a lot younger people coming now so it is a real mix. “For the people who lived through those times, it is purely a night of nostalgia. The reactions I get the morning after are of people saying they had forgot what it was like to go out and have fun and dance, and how it was the best days of their lives. “There are a lot of people who are my age and a lot who are younger. “My kids say, ‘This is amazing,’ but for me to stand on the stage and see people singing their heart out and knowing every word of every song is unbelievable.” The audience changes in other ways too so that no two nights are the same for Jo. She said: “When there are elements that are a bit more rowdy, like Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine and The Prodigy, a bit more hardcore, quite often the guys come to the front of the stage. “Then when the dancey, poppy, rave stuff comes on, I’m quite a melancholy person. If that’s what I was like on the night, I’d have nobody at the gigs

to be N-Tranced the big one 33 ■ Jules boyle the women come forward. Then there are elements when everyone is there together. “When I play The Prodigy, people think they are Keith Flint.” While we would generally associate Jo more with cool sounds and acts, from Pulp and The Cure to Massive Attack and The Chemical Brothers, she admits she’s been surprised by the reaction to some of the poppier experiments she’s dabbled in since returning to gigging post-lockdown. Rave sensations N-Trance and their glorious track Set U Free has also become an anthem for recent shows and Jo admits she’s been amazed by the reaction to a record she was never associated with or played on her radio show. She said: “We didn’t really know what we were doing but we had enjoyed beind led by what the audience were liking. “I also wanted to represent all the different types of music. There is pop music in there, dance music – it is just fascinating what people respond to. “Rave was never particularly my thing but, oh my God, seeing the way the audience respond to some of the tracks like N-Trance – who I never really played on the radio. “It has a profound effect on people just wanting to sing about being free. “I find it amazing to see what a physical release it is to people when we play that kind of stuff. “The set represents everything that was going on in the 90s – it is a sing-along euphoric night. “I just want to play what makes people happy. I’m quite a miserable and melancholy kind of person so, if that’s what I was like on the night, I would probably have nobody at the gigs. So it is not about my taste but giving people a brilliant night out, that is what the set is all about.” For Jo, who is bringing her own kids along to enjoy the shows when she comes to Scotland in May 2022 to Edinburgh’s 02 Academy and Glasgow’s 02 Academy, playing the songs not only brings back memories of the 90s but gives her an inkling of how the actual artists feel performing such legendary songs. She said: “When I play Nirvana, it’s crazy because it takes me back to when I booked them for The Word and I was standing in the studio when they took to the stage and they performed that song for the first time on UK television. “I played The Manics when I played in Cardiff recently and I just remember how exciting and emotional their whole journey was. “I love that band with a passion. Playing them on stage, you just get a smidgen of how it must feel to have written one of these songs for these bands. “It’s the next best thing. I didn’t actually make the song, I’m just playing the record, you are basking in their glory, which is a real privilege. “When I play things like James, Sit Down, and Pulp, I’m singing every word just like the crowd are as well. The only difference is that I’m pressing the button but otherwise I’m just like them, in the music.” With Jo tailoring her set to each crowd and city, we can expect some nice Scottish anthemic surprises thrown in to the melting pot – not least a certain Mr Gillespie and pals. Jo said: “I play Primal Scream every set, of course. “There’s so much great music out of Scotland. I don’t know about punching above its weight, it has just always been incredibly important and extraordinarily prolific. “The amount of talent that has come out of Scotland is phenomenal. The passion in national anthems Jo will play two dates in Scotland on her tour terms of musicians who are there, I can guarantee whenever I interview bands and ask where are your favourite places to play, they say Scotland. “The crowd is just one of the most rewarding receptions on stage because the audience goes absolutely crazy and sing along. “I have no answers to why that is but it is wonderful. “There is just such a raw emotion that comes out in the crowds and the passion for music in Scotland and the impression for all the bands that play there is quite something – it says it all.” And while Scotland, its fans and music and even its venues have left a big impression on Jo, one iconic home of music surprised her with just how small it was. She said: “King Tut’s is like a badge of honour to know that you have played there. It is really important that at one point you are on that stage. Every legend has played there. It’s a real accolade to play there. “One of the big legendary, well, tiny legendary venues. “I do remember going for the first time and it being minuscule, standing going, ‘Oh wow, this is that place’.” • Jo Whiley’s 90s Anthems tour will be at 02 Academy Edinburgh on May 13, 2022, and 02 Academy Glasgow on May 14.

vw 34 REVIEW #MOVIEWATCH DAMON SMIth REVIEwS thREE Of thE LAtESt fILMS tO wAtch IN cINEMAS NOw Stylish sparks fly for Gucci stars MAgICAL TALE… Computer-animated musical fantasy Encanto ENCANTO (PG) Hamilton creator Lin- Manuel Miranda composed the original songs for Jared Bush, Byron Howard and Charise Castro Smith’s computer-animated musical fantasy. Surprisingly, his lyrically ingenious songbook lacks a bona fide earworm to elevate Disney’s 60th animated adventure above his toe-tapping work on Moana. But what it lacks in instantly hummable tunes, it makes up for in vibrant colours and traditions of Colombian culture. A mountain town is home to the Madrigal family led by matriarch Abuela Alma (Maria Cecilia Botero). She is custodian of a magical candle, lit in her darkest hour when her husband sacrificed himself to protect their kin. It bestows special powers to the Madrigals when they come of age. The only member of the household not to be blessed by the candle is youngest daughter Mirabel (Stephanie Beatrix). But when the family’s home comes under threat from a dark force, it is Mirabel who steps out of the shadow of her gifted siblings to seek the key that will protect them all. The film’s heroine continues the studio’s line of spirited, independent women. It is festooned with fierce yet flawed female characters as male counterparts are given exceedingly short shrift. Encanto doesn’t deviate from a path well trodden by previous Disney animations but plays to its strengths, placing family values at the heart of a story that beats defiantly in the face of adversity. PIRATES (15) Boys will be boys when they should be men in Reggie Yates’s rambunctious coming-of-age comedy set in London on New Year’s Eve 1999 during the golden years of the UK garage scene and Moschino fashion. The TV presenter and radio DJ makes his feature film directorial debut with this self-penned trip down memory lane with three wise-cracking best mates, who are scared to acknowledge their bonds are fraying as life takes them in different directions. The script is scrappy, fast-paced and amusing as his three lead actors, Elliot Edusah, Jordan Peters and Reda Elazouar, trade playful insults at dizzying speed. At just 79 minutes, the bromantic comedy doesn’t outstay its welcome as the script hits pleasing emotional beats. A BOY CALLED CHRISTMAS (PG) Tidings of comfort and joy overflow in director Gil Kenan’s rollicking adventure adapted by the director and Ol Parker from Matt Haig’s 2015 book. Employing the same framing device as The Princess Bride – an elderly relative (Dame Maggie Smith) regales initially sceptical moppets with an outlandish story that fires their imaginations – A Boy Called Christmas posits an alternative origin story for Santa and the tradition of bestowing gifts. A life lesson about how to cope with bereavement is laced with sugary sentimentality and magical flights of fantasy including a talking mouse and benevolent elves blessed with wish spells. Brisk pacing keeps the audience’s bells jingling through a couple of narrative lulls but the promise of a flying reindeer and Smith pursing her lips around choice oneliners in present-day sections staves off the threat of an early frost. ■ SUNDAY MAIL, NOVEMBER 28, 2021 The ending of House of Gucci is so shocking it’s hard to believe it’s inspired by real events. But there are plenty of thrills before the end credits roll from Adam Driver and Lady Gaga, who are electric together as oncemarried couple Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani. And it all came naturally for the duo. Adam, 38, said: “There’s nothing to work on as far as chemistry – it’s just there. The more intimate scenes were really fun because I feel JuRASSIC WORLD EVOLuTION 2 PlayStation, Xbox, PC – 16+ Picking up after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel adds new dinosaurs – including much-requested flying and marine reptiles, with all-new behaviours and social interactions making them feel more alive than ever. The all-new Chaos Theory mode has playable versions of key moments from the film series. With expanded construction Adam Driver on his onscreen chemistry with Lady Gaga in scandalous true-life tale comfortable in my own skin and she is in hers.” For Adam, the initial draw was teaming up with director Ridley Scott again. He said: “We’d just worked together on Last Duel, and I loved it. I couldn’t wait to get back on set with him.” The story delves into the history of the family behind Italian designer fashion brand founded by Guccio Gucci in 1921. The saga starts in the 70s options, diverse new biomes, and more customisation choices there is plenty to keep you interested. A huge improvement on its predecessor with almost all the problems of the original addressed. Highly recommended. gary Davis gRAND THEfT AuTO – THE TRILOgY: THE DEfINITIVE EDITION Platform: Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, PC – 18+ The three games included in this remaster – Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City and San Andreas – were showing their fROzEN OuT… Driver and Gaga as doomed couple BACkSTABBINg Gaga with Jared Leto when the firm was run by Guccio’s sons, Aldo (Al Pacino) and Rodolfo (Jeremy Irons). When Rodolfo’s son Maurizio marries Patrizia against his father’s wishes, the family turns their back on him. But she persuades him to join the firm. Aldo’s son – the hapless, fanciful Paolo (Jared Leto) – is not happy. Ambitious Patrizia goads her husband into staging a coup and they seize control of the business, but Maurizio ends up turning on his wife. Desperate for revenge, she joins forces with a psychic and Maurizio has no idea of the danger that lies ahead. New Yorker Lady Gaga loved the complexities of Patrizia. “Before they see the film, some people might think Patrizia is a gold digger,” said the 35-year-old. “But his family had turned their back on him. She married for love. “She was smart and felt she knew what to do to move the company forward. But their acceptance was only an illusion. They were using her to get to Maurizio. She was always an outsider, a woman in a man’s world, and there’s only so much she could do, as many women know. Their power can often go unnoticed.” Another brilliant performance comes from Jared , 49. And it took six hours every day to be tranformed into Paolo Gucci. Jared said: “He was very passionate and volatile.Every scene was absolutely incredible. A challenging experience but worth every single second.” • House of Gucci is in cinemas now. Creating a monster success… and monster flop age. Fans have been clamouring for remakes. But be careful what you wish for – these remasters are by no means the facelift gamers hoped for. The games have increased resolutions as well as updated textures, lighting and draw distances, so they look less ugly on modern TVs. Aside from that and revamped control schemes, the trilogy offers little else to long-time fans. Bugs present in the original games are still around and in some cases performance is worse. A lazy rerelease of decades-old games, with little to justify its premium price tag. Jonathan McDowell

HYPEd Garry will play DoubleTree by Hilton, above It’s strictly ballroom for me This time last year, the idea of being a room with 800 peope was unthinkable but here I am, digging out my tunes and best suit for the big one – The Glitterball at Glasgow’s DoubleTree by Hilton. I couldn’t be more hyped, it’s going to be incredible to see so many people from so many companies properly let their hair down after the second-toughest year in our lifetime. It’s almost sold out and I can’t wait to rock the biggest ballroom in the country for the next few weekends. Then it’s all about New Year’s Eve – when, for the first time ever, I’ll be hosting an event through The Bells. If you’re in Glasgow at the end of the month, you should check this one out – a fivecourse meal, an incredible live band and, of course, it wouldn’t be Hogamanay without a piper. I’ll also be playing a special DJ set at this family-friendly event and it’s shaping up to be pretty special. Check www.doubletree to grab some of the last remaining tables.

As pop phenomenon Years & Years, he’s given us some incredible tunes while championing the LGBTQ+ community on the biggest imaginable platform at every stage. For millions of the young guns out there today, he is doing something quite incredible – merely by being himself. I’m a dad of three kids and I have no idea if they’ll find that their crew in life is a minority one – but if it is, I know I’m happier that people like Olly are out there making it so much easier for them. The new single with Galantis is going to be ridiculously big – more deserved success. I’m Gonna Be at the front Wherever you are reading this paper today, you will not be far from a Proclaimers gig next year. Scotland’s favourite twins are doing just about every town and city in the land, from Kilmarnock up to Inverness and taking in Dundee, Edinburgh, Perth, Dunfermline and Glasgow along the way. I’ve only ever seen them at TITP doing what, for a short while, became an unoffocial “legends” slot. But by the time you read this, I will hopefully have a couple of tickets for what has to be the ultimate night out. Get yours at and I’ll see you down the front. I’m luckiest dad in the world People came together last week to share their experiences of earlier-than-planned births to mark World Prematurity Day. When I look back now, I realise our experience changed me forever but there are others who come very much before me. Ruth Spence was an absolute warrior throughout her pregnancy which, until week 30, was going as normally as it does for somebody carrying twins. Everything that followed was a blur, from being told we’d have to My beautiful premature girls are worth every bit of worry take a helicopter to Belfast due to space shortages, to the birth (ultimately – and fortunately – in Scotland) in a theatre with about 15 people I’ll never be able to thank enough. Then weeks of sitting in traffic at 8am on my way to the ward (Rachel was discharged before Hollie which was both great news and a logistical nightmare rolled into one big ball of pure anxiety).

Right, with wife Ruth parents have a special knack of lightening very stressful events to put them at ease. When, for example, I checked the clipboard at the end of Hollie’s bed and on reading the knowing expression on my face, the nurse would say, “Oh yes, she forgot to breathe at 4am, the little monkey”. Then there were the days where she’d “forget” while I was trying to change a nappy through an incubator.

All came good though and, as promised by the genius doctors, they both grew out of it and we could not count ourselves luckier.
