Covid and relegation at Albion Rovers F.C by Iain McLean.

From Lockdown to Lowland features black & white photos from 2019, through the Covid lockdown to the club’s calamitous relegation in 2023 (ending 120 years in the senior ranks of Scottish football).

The 52 page soft-backed photojournal features images taken from Iain McLean’s on going wider Albion Rovers project.

Originally from East Kilbride, south of Glasgow, freelance photographer Iain McLean describes himself as “instinctively a Celtic fan”. But disillusioned with the big business feel of such a major club, McLean turned his attention towards Albion Rovers in the year 2000 and has followed them ever since.

Inspired by their role in the community, McLean has become a regular visitor to the Lanarkshire club’s Cliftonhill Stadium home, documenting their fortunes for over 20 years.

He has been with them and their fans on Cup runs that took in Rangers and Celtic, as well as focusing on the hard times of deserted stadiums and strictly enforced restrictions in the aftermath of Covid.
