Ready for a rush of customers, Alan Rough stands by with four pint pots in each hand. 1978.
SAFE IN THE HANDS OF ALAN
The big hands of Alan Rough are more often seen pushing shots over the bar.
But now the man who guards the goals for Patrick Thistle and Scotland can be seen in a different role, pushing pints over the bar.
Alan wanted to learn the licensed trade, and Bill Brown, who owns Macintosh’s Bar in Cambridge Street, Glasgow, stepped in.
He invited Alan to work in the bar for a couple of hours a day and learn the tricks of the licensed trade. And the move was gone down well with the Macintosh’s regulars, with football the top talking point in the bar.
Alan Rough went on to own the Goal Post Bar, Garscube Road.
