Interview with Derek Rae

In all the years of following football, I don’t think I’ve once come across someone who didn’t like the work of Derek Rae, the Scottish football commentator for ESPN. Well if you’re as big a fan as I am, you’ll definitely want to listen to the Derek Rae interview on the latest episode of the EPL Talk Podcast.

During the 30-minute interview, Rae discusses the most intriguing Champions League matches of the week.

But, we also delve deeper into the topic of football and discuss with Rae his memories of his first football match he ever attended, what it was like commentating on an England against Scotland match from Wembley, the most memorable match he worked on, how much research he does before matches, and much more.

Enjoy the interview!

    Derek Rae should be ESPN’s lead announcer for Champions League and MLS games. They are wasting a rare talent who understand both the European game and the American game like none other. I look forward to listening to the Gaffer’s interview later today!
