A match for Europe BBC 1 10.35pm

Probably just another programme about where it's all going wrong in Scottish football, but not giving any real answers as how to fix the problems.
I'll tune in anyway just in case someone comes up with some bright ideas that we can all get behind, you know things like less foreign players and more home grown talent, capping players salaries and lowering admittance prices to try and encourage more bodies through turnstiles, 1 or 2 Football associations instead of 3, a pyramid system to encourage the teams that want to succeed not just survive.

It is Jim Traynor doing it, chief balloon at the Daily Ranger. His prescription for solving the ills of Scottish football will be that Scottish football needs a strong Rangers. Especially one that treats journalists like him that carry out nothing in the way of investigative journalism, but just prints any old garbage that emanates from Ibrox, extremely well in terms of hospitality etc.

Best avoided.

Didn't really tell us anything we didn't already know, to be honest

Thought it was a bit rich of Alex Smith to go on extolling the virtues of youth development considering the number of 30something duds he signed at the expense of developing the kids when he was manager here

He's not the most popular man on here, but I thought Steven Pressley came across quite well and made some good points

Jim Traynor for you - unless news of the Highland Football Academy was on a press release marked "From Rangers" he would have no idea it even existed.
