Football - McCulloch sees no gulf in class

Rangers skipper Lee McCulloch claims there is little difference in standard between the Scottish Premiership and League One.

Eurosport - Lee McCulloch feels there is little difference between the leagues in Scotland

Get up to £50 in Matched Bets from Ladbrokes

And the former Scotland player believes his team deserve more credit for taking 61 points out of a possible 63 so far in the third tier.

McCulloch, whose team host Arbroath on Saturday, told Rangers' official website: "Having played in the SPL myself before, I don't think there's that much of a gap between the top flight and League One.

"It's a very thin line between the teams in the division we are currently in and the Premiership and I don't mean that disrespectfully to anyone.

"You look at Motherwell and they went out to Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup this season, who weren't even at home.

"There was another upset at Celtic when Morton beat them at home and that just shows if you drop one per cent or hold off half a yard, you'll get punished.

"I think a lot of credit has to go to all our boys and the management for handling that. We've been really good this season, albeit we've not played every game the way we've wanted to.

"That happens every season. I just think with the amount of games we've won, we've done well and we've set a standard in the dressing room."

The difference is full-time players in the SPFL Premiership and shelf stackers for Asda in League One.

Lee McCulloch needs to stop talking pish and defending his managers lack of management ability, concentrating more on trying to make our football look tactical and not route one.

This doesn't prove anything other than anybody can beat anybody in a game of football. It's like saying there's no gulf in class between the SPL and La Liga because they beat Barcelona.

I knew some would not like it - some just don't want to acknowledge anything positive about our team

There's a fair difference in quality between the teams we're playing now and the teams in the top flight in my opinion

Lee's trying to put a positive gloss on things and talk up the opposition, though I do feel we should be respectful to the clubs at this level who for the most part have done no harm to us (tu)
