Dundee skipper Gavin Rae is best known for rolling up his sleeves and getting stuck in on the football pitch.
Now the 36-year-old, with retirement on the horizon, is about to tackle the fashion industry.
In a partnership with fellow Scotland international Chris Burke and Hull City defender Curtis Davies, the midfield maestro has set up his own label called Seven One Zero, selling designer T-shirts.
He said: “I’m close to retirement age now and I think you need a few options of things to do when you are done.
“Getting involved in fashion is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while.
“I’ve always liked keeping an eye on new trends and trying to keep up to date with fashion.
“I’m also coaching, so who knows what will happen in the future, but I certainly don’t want to just stop and do nothing.”
Gavin is close pals with Chris after spells together at Rangers and Cardiff and they have been planning to launch a business together for a number of months.
The name of the label is even inspired by their squad numbers from this season.
Gavin said: “It’s been going on in the background for some time and I’ve been dying to tell everyone.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Chris and Curtis. Chris is my best friend in football and it was through him that Curtis got involved.
“We were just chatting one day and it’s an idea we really liked, so we thought ‘let’s just give this a go’.
“We went for the name Seven One Zero because 10 is my squad number and Chris plays in a number seven jersey.”
T-shirts will be available to buy from the label’s website in a couple of weeks and Gavin has big ideas for the company.
He said: “We’re starting off with T-shirts and we’ll hopefully move onto polo shirts and so on. We have no specific market and we eventually want to end up supplying women’s and children’s clothes.
“The website will be running in the next two to three weeks, but we do have ambitions to get the clothes in shops.
“We’ve been in contact with a few shops already and we’ve had very positive reviews.”
