    Rangers manager had a falling out with one of Rangers more experienced and maybe popular players..

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41445130

    Guess he is trying to show some control but will the fans go against him if things go wrong?

    Irrespective of any fall out with any player/players, this should have been kept strictly in house! There is a very strong rumour that one of our more experienced players 'Kenny Miller' is responsible for leaking 'stories' to the Daily Record newspaper. I haven't a clue as to whether this is fact or fabrication but it's certainly doing the rounds up here.

    Meant to add....there is split opinion amongst Gers fans over this.

    Isn't Kenny - aka the missing link - Miller not nearing retirement yet? What is he, 36 now?

    Sadly you may be right, the money Celtic are getting from the CL is making it difficult to compete. It will be a long slow road of progression back, but Rangers will get there. If I didn't support Wednesday, I'd definitely be supporting Rangers, massive football club.

    who knows....decent manager but will he revamp the the selection/playing system?....ie giving on-form players a game....Calum McGregor of Celtic and John McGinn of Hibs for instance......or will he continue with the 'auld pals' act ? Tbh I really don't give a toss.

    I hope not, I'd prefer someone like Derek McInnes.

    Strachan's win percentage over 5 years is damn impressive for Scotland at 48%. I think it is the right time to move on though.

    Can't see McInnes mate....he's more of a day to day club gaffer imo.

    Yeah I agree, and Moyes is probably the same as well so not sure if he'll want to be the national manager yet either. Moyes will be too defensive though, I'd prefer someone younger who'll go for it more and promote youth and weed out the old guard. Its needing all freshening up as we clearly aren't good enough to qualify with this lot.

    difference being & I may be wrong here....Is Moyes not out of work at the moment? I'd imagine if he was asked he'd take it. I do agree about the promoting youth so in that case a long term contract for the correct person would be required.

    Yeah I believe Moyes is still unemployed, and no doubt he'll be asked. I hope he doesn't say yes though if I'm honest.

    Former WBA manaager Steve Clarkle close to becoming new Killie manager. Now that would be a good appointment.

    He'd need to get more out of the players than McCulloch.

    Didn't see the game but heard it wasn't a great overall performance by Rangers but a 0-3 win at Perth last night is a good result.

    Dundee beaten but not gubbed at the champs, that's something. At least the Arabs lost though.

    apparently they had a great chance to equalise Salty with a one on one with Doris....unfortunately for Dundee the player didn't score.

    Can anyone explain to me why Barry Bannan gets so much stick from Scotland fans, when shite like Scott Brown still gets a game. Funny hearing a lot of Scotland fans calling for players from the abysmal SPL to be called up ahead of him.

    Brown is ten times the player Bannan is, who has barely improved if at all since his Villa days.

    Bannan is one of the best midfielders in the Championship, play him further forward rather than giving him the graveyard shift on the left.
