Maurice Ross is the latest guest on the Scottish Football Coaching Podcast.

This episode takes on a slightly different format and tone, exploring coaching philosophies in depth.

Maurice has studied with the Scottish FA through his UEFA A Licence and has recently completed his UEFA Pro Licence. 

The former Rangers defender reveals the trait which has been crucial to him throughout his career and emphasises the importance of always asking questions and, as a coach, being ready to answer any questions your players throw at you. 

The podcast evaluates the importance of critical thinking as a skill that is required in the modern game, the key to being a successful player and Maurice opens up about the importance of a player's head in football as opposed to their feet. 

The latest episode of the podcast really draws on themes of mentality, critical thinking and creating an environment in which the players feel heard and valued. 

It is a must listen for anyone looking for hints and tips on how to create a coaching environment that promotes development and success.
