Johnstone leaves Clyde for Real

Former Scottish international footballer turned pundit Derek Johnstone has made a January transfer window move from Bauer to GMG.

He'll swap Clyde 1's Superscoreboard for Scotland's Real Radio Football Phone In – after 25 years with the Glasgow Big City station.

Derek – who played for Rangers and Chelsea – joins fellow ex-international team mate Alan Rough at Real, along with phone in host Mark Benstead.

Derek said: "I'm delighted to be joining Real Radio; this is the start of a new era for me. I'm looking forward to working with Roughy; we’ve always got on well and, we were actually the first to debut the famous curly hairstyles back in the day! And not only do I join a well established and popular on-air team, I'll be working with someone who has an even worse sense of humor than me!"

Programme Director for Real Radio Scotland, Jay Crawford said: "Derek and I have known each other for 25 years and I've always felt he would be a great addition to the Real Radio Football Phone In team. I've spoken to him before about joining us and I'm thrilled that this time the timing was right."

Managing Director for Real Radio, Gavin Bruce added: "We are very excited to be welcoming Derek to the Real Radio Football Phone In. I'm sure that Roughy and DJ will provide not only entertaining listening for football fans across Central Scotland, but also prove to be informative and engaging."

Former Real Radio Scotland stalwart Robin Galloway went the other way earlier this month, joining Clyde 1 to do drivetime after a decade on breakfast at Real.
