In Conversation with… Hugh McIlvanney

Once called the greatest sportswriter in the English-speaking world, Hugh McIlvanney is garlanded with awards and remains sharp and perceptive in the [i]Sunday Times[/i]. His career has taken him through the great sagas of football, boxing and horse-racing for over 50 years. As if the stories of George Best, Muhammed Ali, Bill Shankly, Jock Stein, Wembley 1966, Lisbon 1967 and Alex Ferguson weren’t enough, Hugh remains a sharp commentator on today’s sporting milieu.

In conversation with award-winning sports journalist Graham Spiers.
