Return to Real Kashmir FC, screened on BBC Scotland this week and available now on catch-up, chronicles the fortunes of ex-Rangers defender Davie Robertson since taking charge of the Srinagar club in 2017.

Oxton-raised Lowden’s turn as narrator for the hour-long show is his second aired by the Beeb in a matter of weeks after lending his vocal talents to a BBC Radio 4 adaptation of the unfinished 1896 Robert Louis Stevenson novel Hermiston of Weir last month.

The 29-year-old, seen on the big screen in the likes of 2017’s Dunkirk and last year’s Fighting With My Family, has also appeared in three TV drama series for the broadcaster – The Passing Bells in 2014, War and Peace in 2016 and The Long Song in 2018.

Return to Real Kashmir FC is a follow-up to another documentary about Aberdeen-born Robertson’s ongoing tenure at the club broadcast last year.

The 51-year-old, capped for Scotland three times between 1992 and 1994, previously managed Elgin City and Montrose in his homeland and Phoenix in the US.

Besides Rangers, the left-back played for Aberdeen, Leeds United and Montrose.
