Jack Harper: ‘When I was at Real Madrid people asked if I was actually Scottish’


The Malága striker on his family’s remarkable journey to Spain, training with Cristiano Ronaldo and his hopes for a full Scotland call-up despite the frustration of being dropped by the U19s

The Harpers had been on the road for 21 days when the engine failed 1,786 miles from where the journey began and still more than 100 from their destination, so they just set up home there. The family joke about how the Scots came by caravan and by chance: a fireman, a nurse and their children stranded in a vehicle they could not afford to fix, selling it and starting a new life where they had been left: John, Tracey, Ryan, eight, and Emma, seven. And then Jack arrived – a tale that, told with a grin and a little help from Ryan, unfolds like some 20th-century Spanish nativity scene, as if it was all meant to be.
