Asked by ‘Scotland Today’ correspondent Billy Sloan how his involvement came about, he said: “It came through Roddy McKenna. Roddy’s involved with the place and he signed the Roses back in ’88, kept in touch, stayed friends with Roddy and he phoned me up, told me his involvement in the place, told me what the place was about – did I fancy being a patron. major honour for me.” Scotlandtoday.scottishtv.co.uk has since removed the video.
