Ally better than Gazza?


Recommended Posts

I'm watching the Super Ally video that came out in the 90s, I must have watched it 100 times as a kid

Early in the video theres a clip of Davie Cooper talking about how much of a character Ally was and says "he's probably the Gazza of scottish football because of his personality, but i think Ally's a better player than him actually"

Was he right?

The clip is at 4m30s

 

Great video, Allys birds maw thinking he's an alky cause she thought Irn Bru had alcohol in it ūüėÖ

What has fuck all to do with him? That man stayed to do a job nobody else was taking when we got fired into the third division.  Like or not he was a big part of our climb through the first coupl

To answer the OP there’s no way he was a better player than Gazza. His overall contribution to the club was greater but his ability as a player wasn’t even close to Gazza, he would happily admit

My post is nothing to do with mccoist as manager, its about him as a player,  you'd think at this amazing time that folk could put that petty nonsense aside

I know mate, just pissed me off to say this is nothing to do with him.

Like or not he was a big part of our climb through the first couple of leagues.

In terms of Ally the player his legend status at the club isn’t even debatable and it never will be.

 

The McCoist fan club in full swing , this team and what they have achieved is fuck all to do with him.

I agree although I thought it was an interesting comment especially since it was Cooper that said it. Even though he does have a wee joking smile when he says it. 

Just goes to show what a player McCoist was though, never the greatest in ability or skill but an amazing ability to find the net

To be honest I'm basically just stroking it after watching the Super Ally video, this title win has me feeling like a kid again, buzzing

I do think that Ally was a far better player than he was probably given credit for - he was more than just a poacher when he wanted to be - but aye no where near Gazza. I'd imagine that was Cooper having a bit of a laugh.

Depends what way you look at it,  Gazza was clearly the more talented and attractive players in terms of skill, but Ally scored more than 4 times more goals domestically in his career than Gazza, granted the competition was different. I think Gazza was special for his sheer talent as a player while Ally was special for his sheer dedication and love for his club.

Every time Ally scored you could see how much it meant to him.

Ally - In terms of overall contribution and goals 

Gazza - in terms of skill and vision

and it’s a draw in the daft as a brush stakes 

if Gazza had played the same amount of games as Ally then I think he would hold legendary god like status. 
 

both helped with 55

And to be honest folk who still have a big grudge or feel like Ally was the main reason for our troubles need to get a grip. McCoist wasn't the only manager to struggle with us, even Gerrard struggled, Ally did what he could as a manager, and I was one of those shouting get him to fuck like most of us were

At the end of the day nothing about the journey went the way we dreamed it would 

But the dream came true this season in a a way that was almost better than a dream.

The best thing for us as fans is to look back and reflect on the journey. And to forget some parts and people involved and to forgive others 

One man who definitely deserves some forgiveness is Ally McCoist, he stood by us and took on one of the hardest tasks anyone at Rangers has ever taken on, and he failed, but he was part of it as much as anyone. And he was one of the main men fighting to keep our titles. Without him and a few others they would have ran us Into the ground 

I'm glad that the majority of us see him for what he is, one of the Clubs greatest heroes  who's praises have and should be forever sung

Fuckin best post ever on RM.well said Willis.

No Surrender

Probably comes down to that old argument ‚Äėyou can‚Äôt compare players that play in different positions‚Äô ¬†

Had McCoist on the back of my top and a kid and loved him as he was the one getting the goals I thought he was the best player, but as I got older I appreciated what Gazza did more.
