A few days is a long time on the dark side.
Only yesterday, speculation was rife that Ferguson was heading south, despite the fact that he flattered to deceive at Blackburn previously, but was as it Le Guen stripping Barry Ferguson of the captaincy that was his undoing?
Nope, it was results like this, this, and this - amongst others - that was his downfall. A pedigree of three titles with Lyon ensured that if Rangers were getting the results, Le Guen could have given Nacho Novo the captaincy and no one would have batted an eyelid. However, when a team is on its uppers, then that's when the rose tinted spectacles of 'tradition, history and past success' - and all that sickly sweet bullshit - kicks in. Celtic's been prone to the same sort of footballing spin in the past, and one shouldn't be too surprised that the same (re)invention of tradition has now befallen Rangers and its supporters.
My tip is that Billy Davies - currently at Derby - will be the next manager of Rangers. He's proven himself at both Preston and Derby, coupled with the fact that he is one of their own, will make him a favourite of both the fans and the press. I also think that a lack of immediate transfer funds, and the fact that the job currently looks like a bit of a poisoned chalice, will mean that Murray won't be looking at the continent for the next manager of Rangers.
