About the Book

Twenty-three long years, 276 tortous months, 1,196 despairing weeks – it's a long time in the wilderness . . . 

After a string of household names failed to deliver, the Tartan Army's foot soldiers finally found a leader who could turn their fortunes round. On his appointment in 2019, former Chelsea stalwart Steve Clarke faced an enormous challenge – but under him nothing feels beyond Scotland's grasp. With the experience of Euro 2020 under his belt and time spent moulding a team capable of going toe to toe with the world's finest, Euro 2024 represents another major milestone.

This book looks behind the scenes of Scotland's remarkable rise and tells the story of the man who has led the revival and how he has transformed the squad. Former teammates and coaching colleagues lend their voices alongside an all-star cast of past and present Hampden favourites in a tale of triumph and hope.
