11 Scottish journeymen who were Football Manager legends

Football Manager, which carried on the legacy from its predecessor and subsequent competitor Championship Manager, is a game that consumes lives.

Hope springs eternal in St Mirren legend Tony Fitzpatrick

Tony Fitzpatrick is St Mirren’s patron saint of unquenchable optimism. The 61-year-old has enjoyed a religious devotion to a club he has served in every capacity over the past four decades, doing so now in the capacity of chief executive. Fitzpatrick knows that every available shred of evidence points to his beloved Buddies taking a battering in their Scottish Cup quarter-final at Celtic Park this lunchtime, in a runaway Premiership leaders versus bottom club in the Championship contest. And yet he retains a blind faith in the ability of his Saints to perform miracles.
