Cup double-winning former Aberdeen manager Alex Smith continues his chat with Ryan Cryle and Paul Third about his life in football. In the second part of the interview, Smith details finding 1989 League Cup hero Paul Mason in Holland, as well as telling young star Eoin Jess he’d be starting the Hampden final against Rangers. The veteran boss also reveals how he broke the news to Reds legend Willie Miller he wouldn’t play in the 1990 Scottish Cup final against Celtic, his total faith Hoops-bound Charlie Nicholas would net in the deciding penalty shoot-out and how Brian Irvine put his faith in God for the winning spot-kick. We close on Aberdeen’s 1991 top-flight title heartbreak at Ibrox, before Alex briefly reflects on what went wrong in season 1991/92 – during which he departed the Pittodrie hotseat.
