    Sadly, it does not come down to what you or I think, the precedent was set with Clydebank or was it Meadowbank?

    I was merely highlighting that corruption is prevalent in any society including ours whether its a match official or David Murray etc What was the alternative?

    So, a match official here turning a blind eye or punishing a victim could not be construed as corruption?

    They were in a national sense, only A and B are national divisions. C is an interregional division, D and below are all non professional or amateur.

    I think it's quite clear to see that he does realise this. He states that it is not his job to change Scottish football that that responsibility lies with the media and authorities to change the mindset to football away from rugby\football. He's looking to get Rangers back to where they once were, competing against top opposition which is not going to happen for a number of reasons currently, but mainly as he points out, by suggesting Scottish football is utter dross by way of how well we don't do on not just the International stage but European stage too. Unfortunately, Rangers compete in the Scottish Premier League therefore the majority of teams faced will be hammer throwers.

    From what I remember, he was great player, don't think he was a prolific goalscorer but a workhorse nonetheless. When I signed my first S form I was on the right wing and remember wanting to emulate McKean from watching Sportscene (Pink Floyd Theme tune timeframe) or Scotsport (Arthur Montford Sports Jacket timeframe).

    Remember it well though, my Dad wasn't too keen on it, don't know if it was the price or the fact it had literally came off the back of a lorry...... then again so did the coal!

    Aye we had the slot meter for the telly 50p the electric 10p and the gas, again 50p I remember these times well with the melancholic in me sometimes wishing they hadn't passed Bobby McKean, Derek Parlane, John Greig, Derek Johnstone, Peter McCloy, Tam Forsyth, John MacDonald in my childhood I used to think I was any one of these characters when playing up the park.

    Like I said, I was seven and stood about 3 feet tall if I was lucky so missed most of the match due to everyone being twice as tall, my Dad lifted me onto his shoulders a couple of times but I'm sure I was probably more of a hinderence......

    Scottish Cup Final 1976 Rangers v Hearts, 3 - 1 I was seven, there with my Dad and remember being terrified when the goals were scored being that we were in the celtic end I remember it getting darker when everyone around me jumped up to celebrate. The smell of alcohol and urine not to mention the amount of cans and bottles strewn on the terrace at full time, changed days indeed.

    I agree, he starts the interview in saying that he has not had much involvement in the situation and then goes on to praise KM for the influence he has had on him then finishes with the hope that the issue is resolved quickly. I fail to see where LW is taking sides on this.

    Pedro, is going nowhere well, not at least until the end of the season once the board assess his performance or rather his teams performance over the season. For me, I reckon the KM debacle has came about from the armband situation with GD nothing more, nothing less. I believe it has escalated to where it is now due to KM's ego. For anyone hoping for another PLG situation, catch yourself on, it's not going to happen for various reasons, beyond that I believe BA will be THE club Captain going forward common sense suggests his experience alone would afford him this position. While Pedro goes on about having five Captains which I don't disbelieve, I can't help but feel the five Captains has been a ruse and that his intention was always to have BA in that position. Basically, Pedro has came in with the remit to cleanse the team and instil his own ideas which are being seen to be producing results, not as quickly as some would like but, progress is being made at a rate I would say was rational given the situation Unity and all pulling in the same direction is what brings success, the direction is given by the Manager and the Manager is selected by the board. An over the hill player spitting the dummy out is not going to get the manager sacked, no matter how much you wish it would.
