FOOTBALL legend Jackie McNamara has revealed he has turned his hand to screen-writing – on an X-rated sitcom.
The former Scotland player unveiled The Therapy Room on front of an Edinburgh audience last night.
The football-themed show- which is littered with expletives – shocked the viewers despite the Partick Thistle manager warning them the script was “close to the bone”.
One of the scenes in the 39 minute pilot saw the main character having sex with a girl while his team-mates watch from a cupboard.
One viewer said: “I wasn’t expecting that. It made Footballers’ Wives look like The Magic Roundabout.”
The sitcom follows an English Premiership club after they have a “therapy room” installed to allow players to get things off their chest in front of a camera in a Big Brother-style diary room.
The script is even rumoured to be based on the exploits of McNamara’s former Celtic team-mates.
It also makes fun of wannabe WAGS, sportswriters and football coaches.
McNamara said: “I am really happy with it.
“These are guys aged 18 to 35 in a dressing room, and we were trying to make it realistic as far as the banter and the relationships go. I hope it goes down well.”
The script was co-written with actor Francis Gilhooley, who plays the club chairman.
Jackie’s younger brother Donny stars as player Peter Tully, while Hollywood heavy-weight Gary Lewis, plays the team manager.
