During the summer months, Rob Robertson can often be found jogging round Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. While wearing his glasses.
I only mention the glasses, because Rob hardly wears them for anything else – so why for jogging?
Since he’s always had an eye for the ladies I boldly suggested to Rob that he dons the specs to admire the lycra-clad women runners. He denied the allegation vehemently. But he is still to come up with any other reasonable explanation.
Fleet footed lechery aside, Rob is a well-kent face in journalistic circles and recently made the move from The Herald to become the rugby writer at the Scottish Daily Mail. Meanwhile, he’s also carving himself a second career as an author, having penned books about Hearts and tennis star Andy Murray.
Unsurprisingly it is selling extremely well in the Granite City and also doing not bad across the rest of Scotland. Well enough, certianly, to put it in the top three on the Scottish books Best Seller list – just in time for Christmas.
And the literary classic occupying the top spot? None other than Maw Broon’s Cookbook.
Book your copy now to avoid disappointment, (like when your porridge fails to set properly in the greasepaper-lined drawer at the but ‘n’ ben).
