There are quite a few, I’m definitely up there but I’d have to say Ross Davidson – he’s an angry man.

Ally Love. He’s always the one to first crack a joke.


Best dressed

Josh Mullin would be upset if I didn’t say him.


Worst dressed

Blair Lochhead is shocking!


Where would you like to be, in terms of football, in five years time?

If I got the chance to I’d love to go back to full-time football. If not, continue part-time.
