Asked if the Prime Minister believed that Jose Mourinho’s talents could be used to help Raith Rovers, the PMS replied that Raith Rovers were currently top of their division in Scottish football under the management of John McGlynn. The PMS went on to say that the Prime Minister was a football fan and somebody who enjoyed watching Premiership games, so he knew Mourinho had a fantastic record of success, that he had made a significant contribution to British football in a short period of time and that he was also one of the great characters of the game.

Asked if the PM would like to see Mourinho stay in the Premiership, the PMS said that it was a matter for Mr Mourinho and the boards of Premiership clubs.

Asked if he thought John Reid’s appointment at Celtic Football Club was a good thing for Scottish football, the PMS said that he was sure the Prime Minister thought John Reid had a great contribution to make as Chairman of Celtic Football Club.
