Walter Smith to work for half the season without a contract?!

RANGERS manager Walter Smith will work for half this season WITHOUT a contract.

The Ibrox manager's current deal expires in January and he's reached agreement with chairman Sir David Murray, he'll work after that until the end of the term without a new contract.

Murray and Smith made the arrangement during the summer and Sport of the World understands it moves Rangers closer to a new management structure of Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall being in charge at the club.

Both Smith and Murray are comfortable with the gentleman's agreement and have agreed to review the managerial position next summer. If Rangers win their second straight title it's likely Smith will bow out on a high, moving to a role as Director of Football and leaving McCoist, McDowall and Ian Durrant in charge of first-team selection and tactics.

If Celtic win the flag, Smith could be asked to stay on as boss to groom his assistants to take over the reins.


Think Coisty is now inevitable to be the next Manager, fills me with trepidation as he's my hero and I sincerely don't want that tainted.
