|Subtitle||A Long Suffering Supporter's Search for the Soul of Scottish Football|
|Author Bio||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 or 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 Prestwick with his long suffering wife Debbi (she hates football) and their two Tibetan Terriers.
