“Twelve months ago Celtic had a new manager who had gone on a summer spending spree. Across the city, Walter Smith hadn’t been able to supplement his Rangers squad at all due to financial restrictions. Funny how the more things change, the more they stay the same.” (Guardian)
Who will top the scoring charts in the SPL?
“Wanted: a new hired gun to be crowned the leading goalscorer in the Scottish Premier League. Since sharp-shooters Kris Boyd and Scott McDonald left to join Middlesbrough, a goal-scoring vacuum is waiting to be filled. Boyd, as the statistics show, was a goal machine during his time at Rangers as he terrorised opposition defences. He topped the goal-scoring charts in four of the five seasons he was at Ibrox, with former Celtic striker McDonald taking his crown in the 2007/08 season.” (BBC)
