'The Scout: The Bobby Dinnie Story' follows the life path of one of the most successful and well-known football talent scouts ever to grace the beautiful game in the United Kingdom: Bobby Dinnie MBE. Synonymous with spotting and nurturing the talent of Kenny Dalglish, the Celtic, Liverpool and Scotland legend; he also worked under legendary icons, namely: Tommy Docherty, Bob Stokoe, Billy Wright, Graeme Souness, Walter Smith and Jock Wallace. In the book authorized author Stephen Hamilton Nicol secures personal and exclusive interviews and comments from famous players, managers, coaches - past and present including Sir Alex Ferguson, Kenny Dalglish, John Greig and Bertie Auld. It has a touch of humour - with Bobby telling us of the day he asked his wife, Betty, if she would like to go to the United States for their honeymoon. Ecstatic at the thought of a great trip she naturally said "yes".what she didn't know was Bobby was also taking 18 players from his youth team along with them - to play in a football tournament there. It's educational - where we learn the true meaning and origins of the most annoying football phrases, metaphors and cliches.Inspiring - how a quiet, unassuming and private man took an industrial declined community and pumped vitality and self-assurance into the heart of its dwellers. The book, naturally written in English, even supplies the reader with a vernacular index for readers outside the Glaswegian dialect. how thoughtful! If you're looking for a typical football bio then you've definitely come to the wrong place: it's more than that!
