Outside of football, as a youngster he initially worked as an architect, before lecturing at Glasgow University. He also started appearing in amateur dramatic productions, which led to him becoming a professional actor, appearing in programmes such as Taggart, Rab C Nesbitt, Monarch of the Glen and Hamish MacBeth, as well as appearing on the big screen in the like of A Shot At Glory, Braveheart and Gangs of New York. 

He was also a keen sailor, and died in 2011 at his home in Whitehouse, Tarbet, Argyll.
