"A week is a longtime in football”…

Walter Smith was hailed as a hero and master tactician after Sundays CIS Cup Final victory over St Mirren at Hampden Park then charged as the villain of the piece following Rangers Scottish Cup Quarter Final replay defeat to Dundee Utd over suspect team selection but normal service was resumed on the seventh and final day of the week with a convincing 4 – 1 victory in Saturday's live ESPN match against Hearts.

It’s been pretty much ‘business as usual’ for Rangers as they continue their quest for a possible domestic Treble last achieved during the Alex McLeish Era.

Apart from yesterdays wee blip against Dundee Utd in the Quarter Finals of the Active Nation Scottish Cup, which ended in a 3 – 3 all draw; a cracking game to watch for supporters and neutrals alike.

Rangers came out on top in this season’s third Old Firm league fixture against bitter rivals Celtic all thanks to a last gasp winner from American midfielder Maurice Edu at Ibrox on Sunday afternoon.
