Smeato not moving to the US but has quit car park job
Glasgow Airport hero John Smeaton has said that he is not quitting Scotland for good - because he would miss Rangers and the Old Firm derby too much, the Paisley Daily Express reports. However, he has quit his job as security chief at Glasgow Airport car parking company Park Safe.
A newspaper reported this week that the former baggage handler is leaving Scotland to start a new life in the US with American sweetheart Christy MacPherson, whom he met at a charity do last year. But the man, who won fame after hitting out at terrorists who tried to blow up the airport almost a year ago said that he is not saying goodbye to family and friends to start a new life in New York.
Speaking exclusively to the Paisley Daily Express, 'Smeato' insisted that he is only heading to the US for a month-long holiday - not emigrating. And he said that he could never stay away from his beloved Gers for too long.
However, he did say that he has quit his job as security chief at airport car parking company Park Safe. He said: ‘I have quit the job because I’ve got a lot of things going on at the moment. But I’m only going to the US for a month at the moment to spend a bit of time with my girlfriend and assess my options. I’ve got a couple of things on out there like after-dinner speaking. But then I’ll be coming back.'
