Bizarre Scottish football sightings

Recommended Posts

About 8 years ago I was visiting my Dad in Dubai with my mate. There was a gold souk place nearby so we walked down for a gander and were in one of the smaller shops when my eyes were transfixed by a signed picture of the great scottish footballer..................................................

............................... ............................................................Jim Lauchlan. As I pointed at this picture holding court in the front of shop I tried to tell my mate but was too far gone with laughter and could only point untill he saw it and was scratching his head at such a rare sighting. Im guessing the big man made himself out to be some sort of superstar to gain a discount or the owner was a fan of the football manager he was sh*t hot in.

 

Anyway have any PnBers found some random scottish football memorabilia in the far flung corners of the world?...

I always liked the Liberian 'Well supporters club - something to do with the strips that were left outside Fir Park after Phil O'Donnell died.

I met a Turkish Cypriot in Famagusta who claimed he was Motherwell daft.  I met him a few days later again and he had a Motherwell top on.  He said he like the colours.

Wierdo.

I saw Martin McIntosh, then of Hibernian, waiting behind me in the queue for an ATM in the village in East Kilbride in 2000. I'd just come back from watching Hearts beat Dunfermline 2-0 at Tynecastle and Hibs had lost 3-0 at Celtic. Mr McIntosh was clutching a takeaway pizza from Stefano's in the village. I asked him if it was comfort food. He replied, "I wasn't playing, why would I give a f**k?"

Fair enough. Always stuck with me as an interesting window into the mind of the professional.

I once saw Jerome Vareille beat someone for pace.

He had plenty of pace when he was playing in Europe with the big team from Ayrshire.

Here's him beating defenders for pace at Parkhead (11 mins 30 secs in)

Back in 2006, I helped Calum Elliot, then of Heart of Midlothian, use the automated ticket machine at Queen Street train station in Glasgow. He genuinely didn't know what he was doing, his young face all confused, but he seemed grateful for my intervention.

Sounds like a match report of him at Hearts.

I was on holiday in Vietnam and shared a day trip to an island with none other than Rachid Belabed's tailor. I was excited when he mentioned he was friends with a Moroccan Aberdeen player when he lived in the 'Deen, but unfortunately it wasn't the great Zero himself. 

He now lives in Wales and did the Welsh national team's suits for their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, so fair play to the bloke.

I was at Dens for an U-20/reserve/whatever league they were calling it back then, and I saw Daniel Prodan play a full 90 minutes in a Rangers strip...

 

Some crazy shit...

Was in downtown Toronto 3 years ago and went into a random comic book store. There on the wall was a framed Partick Thistle away top from 2011 signed by what I imagine was all the Thistle players at the time.
