EX-RANGERS midfielder Ian Black has told how he once helped burst his own coupon by scoring a crucial goal for Gers against East Stirling. Six years ago the former Scotland cap was banned for ten games – with seven suspended – and fined £7,500 for betting on 160 games including Light Blues matches. Black said sorry to fans and team-mates for betting charge He later apologised to fans and team-mates over the controversy. Black, 34, today recalled the bizarre circumstances surrounding his part in the Ibrox club’s 4-2 away win against East Stirlingshire in 2013. He told The Scotsman: “Everyone bets. They did then, they still do. “That was an accumulator, I bet £5 on three draws. The midfielder was released by Rangers in 2015 “We were getting off the team bus so I had to hurry and pressed the first games to come up, one of which was ours. “But I scored the goal [Gers’ third] to beat East Stirling so I burst my own coupon.” Black – part of Hearts’ Scottish Cup-winning side a year earlier – won third division and League One titles during his time at Ibrox. He said: “You don’t realise how big they are until you pull on that strip. “I knew from playing against Rangers that every club would raise their game. “I went from one cup final to 36 of them every season.” ‘IT’S YERSEL’ Ex-Rangers starlet Billy Gilmour hailed as part of ‘Stevenston Mafia’ by Grado The ex-Inverness Caley Thistle star has no regrets over his Light Blues move. He added: “Playing for Rangers was a challenge, and an opportunity that was only going to come round once. “I’d like to think I gave 110 per cent because I would have felt guilty otherwise. And I won trophies, albeit smaller ones. [article-rail-section title=”Most Read” posts_category=”3″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] “Some guys are still out there striving.” He was released in the summer of 2015 and had fallen out of favour under Stuart McCall as Rangers lost out to Motherwell in the Premiership play-off final. Black said: “Stuart McCall replaced Ally McCoist and I went from playing every game to not at all. “He wasn’t man enough to tell me why.” Keep up to date with ALL the latest news and transfers from Scottish football plus fixtures, results and live match commentary [bc_video video_id=”6040642125001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”‘Boozy’ Rangers ace Ryan Jack helped to his feet by teammate Graham Dorrans hours before he’s knocked out in vicious Ibiza attack”]

A BRIT climber has died on the Mount Everest “death zone” after falling ill near the summit. Robin Haynes Fisher, 41, was 150m down from the top of the world’s highest mountain when he fainted. A climber has become the tenth person to die on Everest this season due to overcrowding to the summit He had been descending down the 8,850m peak in the so-called “death zone”, which is known for having low levels of oxygen. Murari Sharma, of Everest Parivar Treks company – which arranged his logistics – said: “He died because of weakness after a long ascent and difficult descent. “He was descending with his sherpa guides from the summit when he suddenly fainted.” Guides changed Robin’s oxygen bottle and offered him water but sadly he couldn’t be saved. The climber is the tenth person to die on Everest this season – with most suffering weakness, exhaustion and delays on the crowded route to the summit.

PAT BONNER and his Celtic team went into the 1995 Scottish Cup Final hoping victory would keep Tommy Burns in the manager’s job. But he fears even another win today might NOT be enough to do the same for Neil Lennon at the Hoops. Pat Bonner isn’t convinced that Neil Lennon will be the man in charge of the Hoops next season Stand-in gaffer Lenny could still be on the way out even if he leads the Hoops to a treble Treble against Hearts at Hampden. And while Bonner, 58 yesterday, says there are parallels from his final Scottish Cup win, he feels there are more doubts over Lennon’s future. He said: “In 1995 we hadn’t won anything that season and we felt we had to do it for Tommy because we all wanted to keep him in a job. “We’d lost the League Cup and the likes of myself, Peter Grant and Paul McStay felt more for the manager than we did for ourselves, so we needed to win the Cup. Neil Lennon poses with the Scottish Cup and Hearts gaffer Craig Levein “The final was a horrible game. We didn’t play well and Airdrie were tough to play against. It was just the result that mattered and we won 1-0. “This weekend there’s more pressure on Neil and Craig Levein than on the players, which is unusual. It’s normally players who feel it. “The pressure’s off now in respect of the title but for Neil it’s different. If he’s got any ideas of getting the manager’s job then he’d want to win the Cup and see what happens. “Certainly if he lost the final, it would be tough for him. “Craig hasn’t won anything, so both managers are under pressure. “If the players want Neil to get the job they need to go out and perform. Pat Bonner, Kirsty Gallagher and Sandy Clark look ahead to the cup final this afternoon “It was always going to be a strange week for Neil. If Celtic were going to give him the job they could’ve done it four or five weeks ago and he could’ve got on with preparing for next season. He’d have been halfway through that now. “I don’t know if even winning the Cup will give him an opportunity. He’d be a second choice, I think, at this point. “My biggest worry is regards the preparations for next season. They don’t have enough time. I know they’ll have been looking for players but I don’t know who’ll be picking the players. “Will a new manager have time to get players in and work with them? Will he have time to adapt them into the way he wants them to play? Starlet Mikey Johnston will be hoping for a starting spot today after last week’s double salvo against Hearts on trophy day “It’s three weeks until pre-season and the first Champions League qualifiers are in July. It’s such a short time. They have to bring in four or five players — there are critical positions to be filled. “I know next year is about the league, most fans will say that about the next two seasons, but we all love to see Celtic do well in Europe. The next manager, Rafa Benitez or whoever, if it’s not Neil, needs to perform in Europe.” Bonner will be watching Scott Bain in action at Hampden today with special interest after he took over from Craig Gordon as first-choice Celts No 1. LOVE AFFAIR Scott Brown admits he never thought he’d love Celtic ahead of Scottish Cup Final He added: “Scott will enjoy it. He played in the Betfred Cup final and won that, so he’s got that experience. “The only advice I ever got for a final at Hampden from Billy McNeill was to get a good first touch. Then it was about taking an early cross — now it’s about a pass-back. A goalkeeper now has to make the big saves. “You need a psychology, a good approach, a good technical side and also a tactical knowledge.

It was when he started working with the other players that he started to develop his game. “Scott is good with his feet, but he’s made the big saves as well.
