    This all seems bit strange to me. When Watty was leaving Rangers, Murray took a long time making sure they secured the services of an experienced, manager with a proven track record and an extensive knowledge of European football and Advocaat was duly appointed. 5 Domestix trophies out of 6 and signs that Rangers may finally do something in Europe were putting smiles on all associated with Rangers - including you I'm sure, Cass. Along comes Martin O'Neill who wins the treble, has a great start to the season and now Rangers seem to think having Advocaat as a technical director with a young Scottish Manager, without a single trophy to his name (as a mangaer) is the way to go. Now I think McLeish is a good manager and a decent bloke but has he really proven he is good enough to manage a huge club like Rangers and when has having a technical director ever worked?

    Only time will tell but I am not convinced at all. Still as a Celtic fan, I am not unhappy either!

    Hey PSDM :D Havent seen you for a while? You and your good lady all organised for Christmas? You going to the inlaws?

    Yes, I am happy that Dick won 5 out of 6...but WE WANTED 6!!!!

    I am reserving my judgement of McLeish. He did play for Aeberdeen afterall ;)

    I read on the Scottish Prem website about us getting Feyenoord, Toby. Is this good or bad? Me dont know...

    The gehm the night will be a cracker methinks... (is it tonight? Rangers and Hibs?).

    Yeah, they are a good team but probably the best tie we could have hoped for. If we get through we could be playing Leeds in the next round!

    McLeish was my childhood hero when her played for the Dandy Dons (they were good back then) - and now he is with the scum that is the gers. Gads :_|

    Nearly all organised for Christmas, only a couple of things to get, what about you? Yes, we're heading down to Doncaster for New Year - I just love those curries after the bells!
