Well said that man ! At least Rangers didn't get knocked out by a
bunch of Swedish part-timers (like Villa - Coca cola cup winners aswell as
fourth in the premiership). Oh the shame of losing to last years Chamions
League runners up wit honly ten men on the pitch and the most injury hit
club in Europe. Why is it the English love to criticise Scottish football ?
I'm damn sure Wimbledon wouldn't be in the top four of the Scotish premier
division. Ask last years Russain champs if rangers are a good team (10-4 on
agg, I believe)
