Scottish Sun to Publish Book of Football Funnies

Some of the funniest tales about Scottish football to have appeared in The Scottish Sun in recent years are to be published in book form on Monday.

The A-Z of Football's Funniest Stories has been compiled by the paper's Ronnie MacKay and is the best of 13 seasons' worth of 'wit, woe and wisdom' to have appeared in the paper's Monday football supplement, SuperGoals.

MacKay has been a sports writer at The Scottish Sun for for almost 11 years, having previously at Press and Journal, also as a sports writer, and the Alloa Advertiser, as news reporter. He is a graduate of the journalism degree course at Edinburgh Napier University.

He reveals his favourite story involves former Kilmarnock player Dylan Kerr, who told the paper: “I was a massive Gary Glitter fan. The day he got caught for being a pervert, I was actually dressed up as him on a night out in the Horseshoe Bar in Glasgow. I was taking a leak when the guy next to me spat at me. I had no idea as I hadn't seen the news that day. I said, 'What was that for?', and he just said, 'You f****** sick pervert b******!'. I ended up going to a second-hand shop to buy a leather glove and plastic emerald ring. When anyone asked, I said I was Alvin Stardust.”
