Reading 'Scotland's Jesus' should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain. It's a funny book about the news, partly because it was decided that a pornographic book about Scottish Independence wouldn't really sell. In chapters ranging from international politics to the animal world, 'Scotland's Jesus' is allowed the opportunity to showcase his increasingly unsympathetic worldview and disintegrating psyche.

Tommy 'The Doc' Docherty was a combative Scotland international wing-half who became a brilliant but erratic manager. He was much-travelled, and 'I've had more clubs than Jack Nicklaus' was among the well-worn one-liners that created the image of 'The Doc' as football's stand-up comedian. In this book, David Tossell looks beyond the wisecracks, interviewing Docherty himself, as well as former players and colleagues, to examine a remarkable career and reveal the personal heartaches behind the laughter.
