Partick Thistle 1 - 1 Inverness CT: Gary Warren nets late equaliser for bottom-placed ICT

Firhill for thrills? That all depends on your definition of the word. The last nine matches down Maryhill way have produced just 12 goals and, although the result here was always in doubt until the last touch of the ball, that was small consolation for the home support.

Interview: John Lambie on doos, dogs and heid bangers

I’m looking around the home of this true football man, spotting the playing-days mementos and the cup given to him for being a “manager extraordinaire”. I’m noticing the family photos of his three daughters and assorted grandchildren, also the snap of him with Chic Charnley, an incorrigible rascal he signed four times and who, by way of thanks, phones the old boss every week just to check he’s doing okay. But, for the life of me I can’t find any erotic art.
