No idea how I managed to make it through the working day tbh. STV news was on as soon as I sat down, and that was it. Totally broken. Seeing Coisty and Gerrard.....that was hard to watch. It's just a surreal feeling. Have to say though, despite all the raw emotion I'm feeling....I've found myself 'watching' that clip of him in the tunnel in my head. "Are you fuckin trying to say Brian Laudrup canne play fitba........Here, Archie.....!". That was our Walter. 

He was/is, a very special part of our history.

I don’t think it will properly hit home with me until tomorrow night watching the game and having a drink.

I have more or less avoided all videos today. I tried to watch the Rangers tribute for him earlier but can’t get through it atm 

McFadden is the only one Iv watched. 

The tributes on the radio have been hard enough .

Tom English (I know) said something that he was bang on the money with .He mentioned about other Legends from various places passing .But he said there was something very different about Walters passing .

He has no connection to our club and for somebody like that to notice a difference says a lot .

i know we always hear nobody is bigger than the club and that's true. there is that famous quote by walter himself saying so and that you should put yourself second if you come here. but it really feels like with his passing that the club is missing a part of itself in a way. if you had to pick one person who sums up what this club is all about then it has to be Walter. he is Rangers and always will be. we'll never forget him. players and managers will come to our club a year, 5 years, 50 years from now and if they want to know what this club is about then will look at Walter. 

sorry if i'm making no sense. just trying to make sense of my own feelings. 

RIP Sir Walter Smith

I think the second half of his quote was “…and that’s the only time second will ever be good enough” or words to that effect.

I have lost a number of very close relatives,...parents, brother, wife........... and this feels as real and emotional as any of those losses..... And I didn't even know the man. 

I think many of us are feeling this in the same way.

All thoughts with his wife and family and those who actually knew him, in whatever capacity.

People like Walter Smith don't feature in our lives often, however that happens to be, so let's be happy that we were around to witness his achievements with our great Club.

I was thinking similar on the way home ,I have been shocked and deeply saddened when family members have passed .But I have never welled up at anyone’s passing before .What gets me  emotional  normally is watching achievement .And boy did he achieve some remarkable things in his career .

This is exactly how I feel.  I've never been so upset at the death of someone I never knew, but its as if you did know him and thats why it's hurting so much.
