WALTER SMITH OF RANGERS - A MAN OF FEW FUNNY WORDS.

During the reign of Graeme Souness at Rangers they drew Red Star Belgrade in a European Cup tie in 1991, Red Star like most iron curtain teams then were still a bit mysterious and rather than rely on hearsay or videos Souness despatched his assistant manager Walter Smith to run the rule over these opponents.

A couple of days later when Smith had returned to Ibrox he was summoned by Souness to his office to report, Smith sat down and Souness said "well what are they like" Smith replied with these two words "we're f****d"

Maybe I have a strange sense of humour but; I find that scene hilarious, absolutely brilliant. Small consolation but Smith was right, Rangers and all the others were "f****d" as Red Star went on to lift the trophy.
