Midfielder Under The Spotlight
Always giving 100 percent in a tangerine shirt, Jim McAlister has proved a valuable member of Gary Bowyer's squad so far this campaign.
The midfielder has made 19 appearances for The Seasiders this season and now tackles our 10 Questions.
You’re given the microphone in front of your team mates, what song do you sing?
I usually sing Oasis’ Wonderwall, but to annoy a few folk here I’d do Simply The Best and hope they’d join in.
You have five pounds left to spend on one item, what do you buy?
I’d get a EuroMillions lottery ticket, a big bag of Fruit Pastilles and a bottle of Irn-Bru.
What did you go as to your last fancy dress party?
A basketball player. It was sports themed and I picked out a good one. I had a Cleveland Cavaliers top on.
Who do you room with on away games and what are they like for company?
‘Tayls’ (Andy Taylor). We get on well, we’re the same age and have similar interests. He had a good chuckle when Rangers got beat by Celtic the other month.
What is the most used app on your mobile phone?
Probably the usual, Facebook and Instagram.
Not including the current squad, who is the best player you’ve played with?
Kevin Thomson, he was captain in my last season at Dundee and has had a decent career.
What’s the best holiday you’ve ever been on and why?
I went to Orlando with my missus and my friend and his missus. We’ve been twice and it’s great, more like my kind of holiday than going clubbing.
If you have one super power, what would it be and why?
I’d be invisible for a day and go to Parkhead to cause carnage.
Who is your best friend in football?
The lad I go on holiday with, he plays part-time now for Alloa, big Andy Graham. Also a man Mark McLaughlin who I played with at Hamilton, I’m close with those two.
What was your first football kit and which name did you put on the back?
A Ranger kit obviously. It was an Umbro, McEwan’s Lager shirt with nine McCoist on the back.
