Overview

Is the Baw Burst? Rangers Special: A Long Suffering Supporter Continues his Search for the Soul of Scottish Football by Iain Hyslop

In the 2010/11 football season, Iain Hyslop embarked on journey which would take him to 44 football matches, from Peterhead to Berwick and Dingwall to Dumfries, across a single season. His travels led to the production of the first edition of this book -- the unofficial review of Scottish Football. This new edition brings his commentary bang up-to-date as he follows Rangers in their first games as part of the third division and explores the effect the recent shake up will have on Scottish football. He covers everything from the weather to the pies, giving comments, criticism and suggestions for improvement as the voice from the terraces. The focus here is on the fans' experience of a football match. Hyslop takes a step back from the political and financial issues which engulf Scottish Football to present his vision of the beautiful game as it should be.

About the Author

Iain Hyslop is a football fan and has been all of his life. From as early as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the beautiful game and this obsession continues unabated to this day. Neither the glorious failures of the national team nor the usual disappointments for the club sides in the annual European sorties have dimmed the enthusiasm. He has followed Scotland and one of the Old Firm clubs since childhood and is a fully paid up member of the Scotland Travel Club. Born in Glasgow, in the year the Old Enemy won the World Cup, Iain grew up in the east end and served an apprenticeship in Govan Shipbuilders on the Clyde. Nowadays, he operates as a Health and Safety professional for one of the UK's largest construction firms and is a tutor at Strathclyde University. He lives in Prest-wick with his long suffering wife Debbi (she hates football) and their two Tibetan Terriers.
