Rangers are cash machines and the boring Celtic are about to lose their favorite insult – Hotline – Sports Hotline

Steve Clarke believes Scotland can look to the future with optimism after the final international break of the season.

The national coach saw his side follow up their 1-1 draw in Hampden against Poland with a 2-2 draw against Austria in Vienna.

Scotland’s goals are now set again for competitive matches in June and most punters who have contacted the Hotline are happy with what they are seeing.

Robert McCallum, Ratho, said: “It was a little disappointing to lead both games and not win either, but, overall, it was good.

“They were just friendlies and there were some impressive aspects to take from both.”

Alan McCafferty, Aberdeen, added: “Scotland have reason to be excited and I’m confident we’ll qualify for the World Cup at the end of the year.

“It’s been eight games unbeaten. I don’t care what country you are from, it’s a good record and our young players are growing.

However, you cannot please everyone and Mick ReidGretna said: “It was sloppy of Scotland to lose a two-goal lead against a side who were saying goodbye to their manager and probably weren’t bothered by the result.

“If it hadn’t been for Craig Gordon’s saves, we would have lost. I don’t know where all this positivity is coming from.

In club matters, on Sunday Rangers and Celtic face off at Ibrox in a top Premiership showdown.

Joe Hart will have a big role to play for the visitors and Eddie Easson, Ballingry, says the Englishman proved former boss Nuno Espirito Santo was well off the mark by saying he finished at the highest level.

He said, “So Big Joe is too old, too slow, and not strong enough according to NES.

“Don’t worry Joe, some have said that about the Celtic team and defense the pudding proof is that Celtic are top of the league with the best defense within a mile. , you go to work every day while Nuno waits for another chance.”

Strangely, the chance to equalize at the top of the table didn’t see much contact from their supporters with the Hotline.

John Bruce has made contact with the former chestnut of the teams which will meet in Australia at the end of the year as part of the Sydney Sports Cup project.

He said: “While £3million for a game in Australia would be a nice little income, a point seems to have been lost in the clamor to justify the game for some of the Rangers fans here, especially those who claim that we need the money.

“And that’s the not-so-insignificant matter of up to £20m the club have already banked for the team’s incredible run in the Europa League. When TV money and match revenue home sellouts are factored in, this figure will be much higher if Rangers go further in the competition.

“So the club are far from desperate for the money and the fans are far from desperate for him to go forward. 3 million pounds or not.

Elsewhere, Alan McPherson, Cullen spoke for Buckie Thistle and said: “In response to Dougie Lawrence, I couldn’t agree more with his comment regarding Thistle’s record in the Highlands league against Deveronvale.

“As my beloved Aberdeen had no game, my mate and I attended the game. We were treated to a great game, glorious weather, a lovely half-time pie and a bovril at a split of the prize on the higher league grounds, add to that a delicious ice cream afterwards.

“Last but not least, the £5 entry price. All in all a great day and great publicity for the Highland League.
