    The submariner arm of Ally's Tartan Army. When Dixie Deans met Bob Marley. Jimmy Johnstone's boating trip. Alex Miller, ice cream vendor. Willie Carr's amazing, death-defying donkey-kick. What happened to Bon Accord after the world-record 36-0. The Famous Five from Easter Road who won Brazil the World Cup. Jim Leishman's poetry. And of course, Arthur Montford, resplendent in his sports jacket - the face of STV's Scotsport for 32 years.



    In Bring Me the Sport Jacket of Arthur Montford, Aidan Smith takes a nostalgic, hilarious and heart-warming look back through the history of Scottish football in 51 glorious - and inglorious - moments, celebrating all that is wonderful, quirky and often downright odd about Scotland's national game. It contains memories to make you wince, shudder and laugh out loud - 51 vignettes that encapsulate everything we love about football north of the border (and just over it, thanks to our dear English neighbours, Berwick Rangers).
