Episode 36: Scott McLaughlin 2 (Part Two)

Part two of our interview with Scott McLaughlin begins with the player having left Greenock Morton to join Kenny Black’s Airdrie United. Speaking with Craig G Telfer, Scott remembers the highs and lows of his time with the Diamonds, from winning the Challenge Cup in 2008, to suffering relegation after a long, difficult season in 2009/10.

He then reflects on the most enjoyable period of his career – his first spell with Ayr United – which yielded a memorable promotion to the First Division. Scott looks back fondly at his time at Somerset Park and the cast of characters he shared a dressing room with, including Mark Roberts and the notorious Dean Keenan.

The player analyses his unsuccessful spell with Queen of the South, which ended with relegation to the Second Division, and a miserable eight months at Peterhead, which ended with a falling out with Jim McInally.

Scott finishes by looking back on his return to Ayr in 2013 and the difficult period that saw the club shawshanking down the table, which led to Mark Roberts’ sacking as manager. He concludes with his own departure under Ian McCall in January 2015.
