Get rid of ancient Scot perhaps in show (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

depict

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'in show' is the definition.
'depict' can be an answer for 'show' (synonyms). I'm not sure about the 'in' bit.

'get rid of ancient scot' is the wordplay.
'get rid of' becomes 'de' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
'ancient scot' becomes 'pict' (I've seen this before).
'de'+'pict'='DEPICT'

'perhaps' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for depict that I've seen before include "Paint", "Show[S]", "Delineate", "Sketch or describe", "Draw, describe".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
