He was recently a guest on Go Radio to talk about all things football, Motherwell and his own channel.

On the show, he burst out laughing after joking, “My dad has more points on his license than Motherwell has earned in the last 11 games.”

This led to the show tweeting the clip and people on social media going crazy for Stephens’ wit and comedy.

He was also praised by presenter James McPake, who said Stephen was a “bright and knowledgeable young man”.

Speaking to Lanarkshire Live, Stephen said: “Obviously going on national radio for the GoRadio football show for the first time, there was a bit of nervousness beforehand.

“But from the minute I arrived, everyone at GoRadio made me feel very welcome, I was really impressed with the orderliness and professionalism of the studio.

“I gained 20 subscribers this week and the last 24 hours have been exceptional for me.

“I’m starting to go places, but it’s all about keeping my head down and keeping the momentum going.

“When I started the channel I didn’t have much confidence in myself, but now I’m starting to feel like I belong in the football media.”
