Craig races along to aid greyhound charity

Have your say

Scotland football manager Craig Levein has shown his support for a charity that cares for retired greyhounds.

The ex-Hearts boss and his own greyhound Ayla were the guests of honour at a dog show and community fun day organised by the Retired Greyhound Trust’s Edinburgh branch last week.

He met with more than 60 members of the public from across Scotland and talked about caring for greyhounds.

Mr Levein said: “Greyhounds make fantastic pets once their racing days are over and I am really pleased to support the work of the Retired Greyhound Trust and help raise awareness of their work.

“The Trust has six branches across Scotland that, thanks to the efforts of many hard working volunteers, find homes for 200 greyhounds each year.

“To anyone thinking of a new pet, I would urge them to think greyhound.”
