Here’s another chance to hear my interview with Neil Lennon from season two.

This conversation – recorded in front of a live audience at Greenock Town Hall – was set up by Line of Duty and Hollywood star Martin Compston to raise funds for Ardgowan Hospice.

Neil did that fantastic charity proud by giving us an eloquent, revealing, witty and highly entertaining interview. Want to hear about how Martin O’Neill signed him for Leicester City by summarising his contract on the back of a pizza box? Or the sheer will to succeed Neil had to demonstrate after his fledgling playing career was massively interrupted by back surgery? You’ll also hear about how Neil adapted O’Neill’s brilliant management techniques, and ended up masterminding a famous victory over the mighty Barcelona during his first stint as Celtic boss, a win that moved Rod Stewart to tears, and Elton John to telephone to congratulate him.

Brilliant stuff.
