025 Scott McLaughlin: Retiring to become an agent, lockdown running, best pal Snoddy, cup glory at Livi, promotion at Morton, cup success at Airdrie & his holiday trilby hat
Manage episode 272982201 series 2667104
SCOTT McLAUGHLIN spent lockdown doing 5ks, 10ks and even a marathon.
But last month he decided his football career had ran its course.
After more than 18 years as a player he felt it was time to hang up his boots to focus on being an agent.
We hear how that’s been going – and the way his running inspired others to get their trainers on too.
Scott tells us about best mate Robert Snodgrass – and how he kept him on the straight and narrow by having him as a lodger for three months.
We’ll hear about the pranks the pair used to get up to and why he’s never met anyone mentally stronger than Snoddy.
There’s Scott’s 2004 League Cup win with Livingston, which came shortly after the club’s administration.
And why playing in the old Second Division with Morton was tougher than the Premiership.
We’ll find out why he loved Somerset Park so much and the day he nearly became a Peterhead legend despite staying at the club for just a few months.
Plus there’s the story behind the trilby hat that goes on every holiday with him.
It’s all on Down The Divisions.
