Interview: Scott Allan on why everybody hates him...

On the way to meet Scott Allan, as so often happens to me in Lanarkshire, I get lost.

I’m unsure if I should make a joke about this, telling him I thought I glimpsed his spot-kick finally coming in to land, what with his team bottom of the league, but decide what the heck.
