Andy Bollen has created a fantasy football museum to collect together a treasure trove of Scottish football exhibits that ranges from Jimmy Johnstone's oar to Aggie the tea lady's trolley.

Learn why Puskas and Socrates should've been Scottish, the versatility of the pie and Napoleon's links to Bovril and explore all the wonders of the game north of the Border - from Arthur Montford to the phone-in, Think Tanks, Buckfast, vanishing cream for referees, Twitter, VAR technology and flares (pyrotechnics, not 1970s attire).

These exhibits distill the beauty of Scottish football into an entertaining volume that will make the perfect gift for any fan. Taking a satirical swipe at the beautifully flawed game, A History of Scottish Football in 100 Objects covers the mayhem, mavericks and bric-a-brac from the magic sponge, to the pie, hair weaves to tattoos.

Bollen is the perfect curator: impeccably informed, passionate and insightful.
