Former Aberdeen striker Rory Fallon has achieved his dream of opening up an ice cream business after quitting football.

The ex-New Zealand international finished his career when his country’s World Cup bid was ended against Peru two weeks ago.

And now he’s turned to a life long passion for ice cream by opening the business with his wife in Plymouth.

And he’s revealed he used to test flavours on his old Aberdeen team-mates, after spending two years in the Granite City.

He also spent a season playing for St Johnstone but struggled to make an impact.

He told BBC Sport : “Ice cream’s been a passion of mine since I was young.

“I remember when my dad used to coach football on Saturday and I’d play my games. On a Sunday we’d get ice cream as a treat if we won.

“My wife and I both had a major passion for it. Every time we’d go on holiday, the first place we’d hit wouldn’t be the theme parks or beach – it would be the best ice cream shop in town.

“The opportunity came up when I got injured to start up our own ice cream business.

“She was a trained chef but was pretty much just following me around the country. So while I was playing football she was making ice cream and thinking of new flavours.

“She had a desktop ice cream machine and all the lads at Aberdeen
