What a turnaround that was! Thank god for Ronaldo...!

Finally a result for both my teams in Europe this week lol!


Sad to see Steve Bruce go earlier today but it was on the cards in more ways than one. Funny to see Gerrard linked as i honestly don't he'd go.... He wouldn't do a Brenda :lol:

Don't worry Stevie G is sticking around for 56 so let's all sing

Follow, follow Glasgow Rangers,
Follow, follow all the way,
55 times the kings of Scotland,
The most in football’s history,
We’ve got the battle fever on,
Fight till the day is done,
The spirit of Bill Struth it carries on...

A very sad day for all Rangers fans around the world as our greatest ever manager Walter Smith has died. Walter or as he was better known The Gaffer was Rangers through and through. His record as manager speaks for itself

10 League titles
5 Scottish Cups
6 League Cups

RIP Gaffer

Lovely words from one of my all time favourite football players.

Also as much as Rangers and Celtic are enemies when someone dies from either club the support and well wishes we give each other is simply amazing. Thank you to Celtic for this.

Very sad news today indeed. Rangers and Scottish Football have lost a true gentleman and a giant of the game. Respected the world over and most definitely worthy of a statue outside Ibrox.

Those who say he didn't cut it as Everton manager don't know what the man was up against and largely his signings were Davie Moyes stars when he preceded him. Also assisted Sir Alex at Utd and that was no pals act and he was well respected there too.

Very sad. Sleep well Mr Smith.

Ouch. Seen it coming but expected worse! No heart from Utd today, very disappointing and clueless. One shot on target from Ronaldos shin says it all.

Time for a long overdue change of manager. Utd are doing exactly what Celtic did last season and waiting far too long to make a change.

Really sad day today as Stevie G has decided to leave us and become the Manager of Aston Villa.

Steven Gerrard was brilliant for Rangers on and off the pitch. He deserves immense credit for turning us back into champions. All the best to him at Aston Villa.

Now the hunt for a new manager begins. For me it's got to be Gio Van Bronckhorst. He is not only is an ex Rangers player but is also a pretty good manager.

Well, Bertie and Walter would have been beeming with pride after that performance!! What a result and home game playoff to look forward to but that was emphatic!!! Well done Scotland!

Very sad about Bertie... Knew him well. I would always get him to pitch in on the tours when he was around and he was amazing to take the time he did with people... Not fans... People.

To show an example of his sharp wit or as we Scots say, his banter...

I asked him one day in front of a tour to tell us a story we didn't know about the Lisbon Lions, something juicy i joked so he thought for a moment and said "OK.... One of the Lisbon Lions was Gay". The fact here is everyone knew the Lisbon Lions were all married with kids.

Myself and the tour guests are like yeah right.... Lol.... But he straight faced made us believe it but wouldn't say who the team member was. "No, you asked for something you didn't know and I gave you something" he quipped.

After another few "you have to tell us!" he says.... "right, I'll only whisper it in Ricky's ear and it goes no further". Obviously at this point I'm like... stop the press man..... So i turn to let him whisper into my ear and low and behold.... He gives me a kiss on the cheek!!! Absolutely hook line and sinkered!

I feel very privileged to have shared a room with the man and his dedication to making others happy was typical of his attitude on life.
