Stand By Your Reds, written by award-winning sports journalist Bryan Cooney, takes readers to locations where few have ventured – notably, the sacrosanct dressing room and those secretive corridors of power. This engaging narrative, built from a chronology of forensic interviews, ranges from the fifties to the present and tells the stories of an idiosyncratic team and an inveterate fan. Although it never neglects the triumphs, it refuses to ignore the turbulences. Cooney features:

The incendiary reign of Eddie Turnbull, manager, martinet
Stuart Kennedy – the first player to front up Furious Fergie
Why Jim Bett was unable to forgive the directors
Steve Paterson makes an extraordinary drinking debut
Leigh Griffiths – why he was the one who got away
The loneliest, most intimidating sacking of Milne’s life
and McInnes reveals what makes him really see red.

Stand Free. Stand By Your Reds. Enjoy.
