Richard Gordon is the long-time presenter of BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound programme and a life-long Aberdeen FC fan. His passion for football was sparked by the 1970 Scottish Cup semi-final, his beloved Dons winning that day and going on to beat Celtic to lift the silverware. He followed the club throughout their glory years, watching them collect trophy after trophy, and remains a passionate supporter in these less successful times. Richard passed the poisoned chalice on to the first-born of his four children, Kiefer, but prefers not to mention that his other son, Oliver, is a follower of Dundee FC. Richard Gordon lives in Aberdeen.
