Stephen Glass wasn’t ready for Aberdeen job and Malky Mackay should be number one target – Hotline – Sports Hotline


Time ran out for Stephen Glass at Pittodrie and the Scottish Cup defeat to Motherwell proved to be fatal for his reign.

Aberdeen fans had lost faith – but now there’s a scramble for a new boss and the suggestions are piling in.

Andrew Lamb, Fraserburgh, said: “No surprise to see Stephen Glass go at Aberdeen. He was a nice lad, but too inexperienced. I’d like to see the Dons go for Ross County boss Malky Mackay, who is wasted at the rent-a-gloom Dingwall club.”

Frank McFerran, Carrickfergus, said: “Give the job to Jack Ross, he has proven that Hibs were stupid to sack him, he is a good manager and would do a job, given time.”

John Davidson, Armadale, said: “I can hear the sound of broken Glass at Aberdeen. He was never going to have have long left in the Aberdeen hot seat after that Motherwell result.”

Celtic’s impressive financial figures got Scottish football’s armchair accountants in a spin.

Gordon Ashley, Ayr, said: “Celtic having £26m in the bank in the present climate just shows the massive gulf between Celtic and the second biggest club in the country.

“Even without player sales our annual turnover blows Rangers out of the water and that’s why all the pressure is on them, and none on us, to win this league.”

Michael Crooks, Aberdeen, said: “Celtic have spent the guts of £25 million and two of their best players – Jota and Carter-Vickers will cost about £13 million, so I see they are using the good old Seville calculator again.”

And regular caller Gordon Ashley was in the cross hairs yet again as Craig Wilson, via email, said: “What planet does Gordon Ashley live on? Claiming Rangers fans like myself are terrified. It’s laughable.

“This coming from a guy’s club who demanded a title in a Zoom call, manipulated fixtures two seasons in a row to try to get fans in and actually had the cheek to claim officials were biased against his club.”

The Old Firm bickering never goes away.

Liam Birney, Paisley, said: “Regular Hotline caller Chris Lowe wanted to talk about statistics. Well, so do I.

“Celtic have scored the most goals in league, conceded the fewest goals in league and have the most points in the league. Undeniable facts.”

Chris Currie said: “Chris Lowe’s comments are way off the mark. Celtic on average have more than twice the possession of their opponents yet somehow like in the game against Aberdeen were adjudged to also have made 64 percent more fouls. That is not possible if the rules are applied evenly and fairly, yet the SFA disciples make sure it happens by blowing for a free kick if our players even get close to an opponent.”

Rangers came through Annan unscathed and Alan McGaw, Alloa, said: “Job done in difficult conditions and it seemed to be Rangers adapted to the artificial pitch better than Annan.

“With a new team of changes it was great to see other players getting a game and it’s onto a completely different level in Europa league onThursday.”

Scotland’s rugby side are back to earth after the Six Nations defeat in Wales.

Andy Lanigan, Bishopbriggs, said: “Our players seem to think beating England is the most important thing in their world.

“A poor, leggy, scrappy display against a fragile Welsh team there to be beaten. Finn Russell was a liability, poor kicking, passing, and a yellow card. Another promising season down the pan.”
