The Scottish Football Periodical


Ghost noises
By Daniel Gray.

When Brazil scored an own goal in Glasgow
A bitter row with reporters on their pre-World Cup tour in 1973 came to a head in Scotland. The dazzling champions of 1970 were losing their touch, on and off the field.
By Andrew Downie

Scotland’s Sixties Brazilian fling
In 1965 Celtic, Dunfermline and St Mirren all fell for a clutch of cut-price Brazilians. It was a significant cultural moment.
By Daniel Gray

The brothers who kick-started Argentinian football
The Brown family was lured to South America to be part of a utopian farming community. That didn’t work out, but they planted the seeds of something bigger.
By Jonathan Wilson

My friend Fabian, the South American footballer
This skilful midfielder has played for Gretna and Hibs – and in Italy and Colombia – plus a host of clubs in his native Montevideo. It is always a pleasure to catch up.
By Jim Rendall

Not a bad wee trip
Scotland’s first adventure in South America was six years before the fiasco in Argentina, in a competition now largely forgotten. Strangely, it was something of a success.
By Craig Stephen

Plus much, much more.
