To say that Scott McLaughlin has been around the block would be an understatement: Clyde’s 31-year-old midfielder has been there, done it, and bought the t-shirt. McLaughlin joins the Pelé Podcast to look back on his 14 seasons in senior football, from his days as a trainee on YTS forms with Hamilton Academical to his recent move to Barry Ferguson’s Bully Wee side.
He reminisces on his breakthrough at Livingston and his rise to prominence at the troubled club before his transfer to Greenock Morton. McLaughlin looks back at his fitful time at Cappielow and deftly takes apart David Irons’ recent comments about the club. He speaks at length about his two spells at Ayr United and the rise and fall of the Honest Men under Brian Reid and Mark Roberts respectively.
McLaughlin also remembers his years with Airdrie United, Queen of the South and Peterhead.
The sound unfortunately warps in some parts but no matter; it is an interesting and humorous account of a very decent career.
