I don't usually comment on someone's passing who I didn't know personally .
But in this instance I feel I have to
Walter Smith caused me more heartache
Than I care to remember.
But I couldn't help but admire his passion and drive to win and his dignity in defeat
A true giant of Scottish football.

Fair play to that wee celtic lad outside stadium today what he said in his interview was spot on. Wish more fans from both sides seen things that way.

Over the coming days we will all remember our individual Walter stories and memories. 30 years ago I joined the youth coaching team at Ibrox, thinking at the time that my heart would burst with pride at such an honour after working for many years at boys club level.
When we were coaching the 15/ 16s on the astroturf across the road, occasionally Archie Knox or even Walter would stroll over and drop in a word or two to the starstruck youngsters. At first, obviously, Walter had no idea who I was but would chat to all the coaches present and included everyone. He also sometimes brought Steven, his son, with him and he would join in with the other kids, understanding that maybe it wasn't always easy to be the son of Walter Smith and relax with other kids of a similar age.
Then one horrid, cold, wet night at about 8.30pm we had finished our session and I was dragging two bags of balls across to the stadium. The wee door was closed as there was a s****y function taking place inside so I had to go in the big doors. A dinner suited Walter appeared at the top of the stairs and opened the door for me, saying "What a dirty night" - and he called me by my name! He had gone to the trouble of asking John Chalmers (the head of youth coaching at the time) who I was and this was just his wee way of making me feel part of the team.
After that we met many times at scouts and coaches meetings, at functions and even pre-party drinks in the Blue Room. I saw him offer congratulations to people for the most minor achievements and I saw him tear strips off others for falling below Rangers standards. I was lucky never to be on the receiving end of an icy tirade from the Gaffer.
I will remember a great man who knew he was touched by destiny and was all the more humble for it. He could make grown men cry then they'd go out on the pitch to die for him.
If the measure of a man is how many people grieve for his passing, then Walter Smith was the highest, highest calibre.

Wonderful emotional tribute from Steven Gerrard on Rangers TV this morning. I had no idea he and the gaffer were so close. Had tears in my eyes watching Steven break down half way through and have to restart the interview. Heard Ally on talksport this morning as well. Struggled to keep it together, but still delivered a superb tribute to a great man. Sad day with the loss of Jimmy Millar as well, ironically the gaffer's favourite player. RIP two Rangers legends, never forgotten 😥❤💙👏.

I've thought long and hard what I can add to the many many amazing tributes to a man that dominated my era of football at 47 years old! The man is a Legend and I was deeply shocked at his loss, I met the man twice in my life and he was a complete gentleman and humble with his achievements, Rangers has lost part of its self today! May the man rest in peace, Goodbye Gaffer x.

I remember as a young man after an early exit from Europe Walter and the team where getting terrible stick so I wrote a letter saying most Fans were behind him and not to pay attention to my surprise I got a letter back Walter had signed thanking me for my support. A gentleman who has made heaven a better place. God bless.

If I could give all my fellow bears tonight a big, I’d throw my arms around you all. What a tragic loss, for his family, our club, the wider football communities and society as a whole.

I met the late great man a few times and they say never meet your heroes, but he was more than just a hero. He epitomised everything Rangers stand for and believe in.

Stand down gaffer and thank you for all the memories, the handshake and the laughter in your presence. Much love to all.

Just reading all the posts on rumours page regarding Goldson
I'm absolutely shocked if this true
That he would want the captain armband from the current captain, a bit cheeky at the very least in my opinion? Says a lot of what he thinks of tav does it not?

can understand wanting more money and he has probably played more games than any player at the club bar Tav possibly so can see why he wants more money
would love to know why he hasn't spoke to barasic in months and why management can't get them round a table and sort it out for the benefit of the team and club as a whole cannot be a great atmosphere at times if true?

could all this going on in background be affecting some performances?

Shocked to actually hear that this is all going on wouldn't have thought Goldson was like that, especially part about captain armband that's a bit unreal and sounds like he will be gone sooner than later can't see Gerrard or the board putting up with that for much longer we sort of restarted his career and giving him a platform to showcase himself on the European stage.
I'm actually really disappointed in him as I actually really like him as a player and has always came across well in interviews etc?

Where are you seeing this mate I've only saw a coupla comments on the rumours page but was just a rumour that we don't know if its mince or true but if true i'm flabigasted he's being aloud to unsettle the dressing room by his demands bet Sir Walter wouldve grabbed him by the throat and shown him the door.
