The whole “five band years = a lifetime” biz trope is justified, if not negated, by the second album from Sydney’s Low Life. Arriving with an aura of anticipation, ‘Downer Edn’ (read: Edition) feels like a collective document of the band’s timeline since their unforgettable debut ‘Dogging’; an album which made enough of a mark […]

I thought that the hunting season had finished. No more noise from the guns, and no more white vans cluttering up our little lanes. So it was with some surprise that on Wednesday I came across dozens of hunters high in the hills a few miles away. It was a lovely bright but very windy […]

The Scottish Sun
THE last time Allan McGregor’s cap career came to an abrupt halt — with a lifetime ban — he was back in a Scotland jersey a year later. So it would be foolish to think the Tartan Army have seen the last of the big man. Allan McGregor has retired from international duty Snubbing his country to concentrate on Rangers — on the back of a two-match suspension from the SFA — has seen the 37-year-old keeper accused of chucking the dummy out of the pram. If there’s any truth in that, I say we rejoice. Well, after a crazy few weeks, I think we can cope with those sort of missiles in Scottish football. In Tuesday’s powderkeg Scottish Cup replay at Ibrox, the only thing thrown on to the park — apart from “the towel”, as suggested by one regular reader — was Alfredo Morelos’ body. The Colombian striker is a fans’ favourite and I understand he’s also very popular with his team-mates. On a players’ night out, he’s the designated diver. Alfredo Morelos goes to ground against the Dons Clancy with Gerrard earlier in the season But the wee man needs to get a grip and knock this nonsense on the head. Ditto the Aberdeen support — frequently praised in this column as the best away fans in Scotland — who launched into a chorus of “Cheer up, Stevie G”, which is now being investigated by police. As for the Dons fans who smuggled a MATTRESS into the ground (as a follow-up to the crude banner about Morelos’ mother), I believe they’ve received an enquiry from weary St Johnstone supporters asking how they managed it. Two-nil to Aberdeen was a fair result and Rangers have now recorded just one win against Derek McInnes’ side in six attempts — including two cup exits in Glasgow. Steven Gerrard is the first Gers boss since Kenny McDowall in 2015 not to reach the semi-final stage of the Scottish Cup. He now boasts a worse win percentage than Mark Warburton, Pedro Caixinha and Graeme Murty. Steven Gerrard hit back at his critics saying ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ The rookie boss, who claimed Rangers were “a class above Aberdeen” at the start of the season, says he’s now getting pelters from the “keyboard wizards”. I think his players need a bit of heart and courage, like The Tin Man and The Cowardly Lion in, er, The Warrior Of Oz. Bottom line? Eight of Tuesday’s starting XI — plus subs Kyle Lafferty, Steven Davis and Jermain Defoe — were all Stevie G signings. The Liverpool legend was outfoxed on the night by McInnes, who was missing first-team stalwarts Sam Cosgrove, Shay Logan and Gary Mackay-Steven (too wet a night for him, presumably). Morelos booked for diving Tell you what, though, I still thought Rangers SHOULD have been awarded a spot-kick when Morelos hit the deck in the first half. And after watching the replay, with Andy Considine’s arm around his neck, I can’t believe the yellow card for diving wasn’t rescinded at yesterday’s appeal hearing. Maybe referee Kevin Clancy should ask Steven McLean if he could text him a number for Gerrard. And here’s an even better idea — perhaps someone at Ibrox should sit down with Morelos and tell him about The Boy Who Cried Wolf. GERS CLEAN-UP Gerrard says Rangers was TOXIC when he arrived and insists he WILL fix problems To be honest, the best dive on Tuesday was actually at the other end of the M8, when Hearts striker Uche Ikpeazu convinced referee Bobby Madden to award an outrageous penalty against Partick Thistle. The big man took the spot- kick himself, and he perhaps was feeling guilty as I loved the way he played it straight back to the keeper. Top-quality sportsmanship which, as a Motherwell fan, I can only applaud. According to raging Thistle boss Gary Caldwell, the big man fell over “like my little girl in the park”. A fiver says she’d also have struck a better penalty. [article-rail-curated title=”RELATED STORIES” selected_posts=”4004866,4004704,4003384,4003714,4003496,4002121″ /] PS: Fair play to Defoe. I don’t think anyone — particularly the hacked-off Ibrox diehards — bought his line: “If I was a Gers fan, I’d be excited.” But he surely deserves credit for saying “IF”. In the wake of Brendan Rodgers’ hasty exit from his (ahem) boyhood heroes, how refreshing was that? Wee are the real champs AFTER mouth-watering quarter-finals teed up Spurs v Man City and Man United v Barcelona, hands up if you think Uefa care what Ajax and Celtic think of the Champions League? Ajax made the European Cup their own in the 1970s and I’m sure I heard somewhere that Celtic won it in 1967. Both are hoping for a fairer crack of the whip thanks to such past glories — but it’s never going to happen. I still agree, however, with Edwin van der Saar and Peter Lawwell. The elite Euro competition is a farce and it’s madness to think the champions of Holland and Scotland play so many qualifying rounds before getting a sniff of the so-called Champions League. Chuck Liverpool into the mix and that’s a quartet of English clubs in the last eight. Was there a four-way tie last year for the EPL title? Daftest idea by distance ANOTHER semi-final draw, another headache for far-flung visiting fans. This time, Inverness Caley Thistle punters have to hit Hampden for 12.15pm on Saturday, April 13, for a so-called “showpiece” game against Hearts. With a little help from Google, I can tell you the trip to Mount Florida from the Highland capital takes three hours and 20 minutes by car or four hours and eight minutes by train (if there’s one running early enough). The minute last night’s derby against Ross County was called off due to a waterlogged pitch, how many Caley supporters considered making an early start on the trip to Glasgow? Inverness’ Brad McKay celebrates at full-time of Scottish Cup quarter-final against Dundee United No stand n’ deliver WITH our clubs and Scottish football’s ruling bodies continuing to dither over the recent spate of hooliganism, don’t hold your breath waiting for them to shut a stand or two. If only they could take a leaf out of the women’s game. Don’t know what crime was committed, but I did notice that all the games at the recent Algarve Cup were apparently played behind closed doors. [article-rail-section title=”Most Read” posts_category=”3″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Don’t be stout of luck now FAIR play to sponsors Guinness, who sent lifelong rugby fan Peter Murray, 73, two tickets for Twickenham after he wrote to explain he could be Scotland’s lucky mascot. You see, folks, we’ve only won twice at the home of English rugby in 61 years — and Peter was at both matches. Impressive — but listen, if anyone at Guinness is reading this, I might be an even luckier mascot. I haven’t seen Scotland losing at rugby — EVER (mainly because I haven’t watched a single game). Don’t want tickets for Twickenham, thanks, but a few crates of the black stuff would be lovely. And finally… SO, Roy Aitken says his great friend Alex McLeish — a former Aberdeen and Scotland team-mate — will show he’s the right man for the national job. Pass the smelling salts!
