Former Rangers assistant manager, David Weir, has stated that the Ibrox managerial post is no longer as attractive as it once was. “But it has become a bit of a hotseat now, and it’s a little bit of a revolving door, which makes it less attractive,” said the former central defender.

 

Steve Clarke has admitted that had things not worked out at Kilmarnock this season his career would have been in a very bleak place. Speaking to the media after winning his third Manager of the Month award, he said: “If I’m being honest after two managerial jobs, a lot of good coaching jobs, it was probably my last chance as a manager.”

One club that aren’t happy with how the fixtures have turned out are Hearts. Craig Levein’s side will have to travel to Ibrox for a third time this season and end up playing an extra away match. In a club statement, they said: “Whilst the club is disappointed about this situation, it is a consequence of the inherently imbalanced system that the SPFL clubs have elected to operate.”

Celtic legend Packie Bonner has took a swing at Moussa Dembele, stating that the Frenchman won’t be remembered for too long at Celtic Park if he doesn’t start performing on a more consistent basis.

 

Scott Brown has suggested that winning the league title at Easter Road – where Celtic are likely to win this season’s Scottish Premiership – would be the perfect conclusion to his testimonial season.

 

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has told the Scottish Sun that his decision to completely revamp his squad in the summer was a risk that could have cost him his job if it hadn’t worked out. Speaking to the newspaper ahead of this weekend’s semifinal clash with Aberdeen, the coach said: “Managers bring in players for £10million and it doesn’t work. I brought in 16 free transfers and a 10-grand goalkeeper. So yes, if things had gone wrong then I might not have lasted long.”

Niall McGinn has stated that he’s glad he’s no longer in South Korea and missing out on this weekend’s Scottish Cup action.
