The Week in Scottish Football

The runners and riders in Scottish football over the last seven days:

Well Done You!


Until this afternoon Kilmarnock were going to get this for performance of the week. But Falkirk made a late charge and came through on the inside after putting Rangers to the sword.

A special mention to Scott Brown. After building up a reputation as the player other teams love to hate he’s achieved a double whammy by becoming the player the Hibs fans love to hate. A transfer request months after signing a new contract is not endearing. A transfer request minutes after an abject performance is insulting.

Oh Dear!

Stephen Kenny went back over the water to win the FAI Cup with Derry City. Congratulations but after a 6-1 loss yesterday Dunfermline fans will be asking where the manager’s thoughts have been this week.

Paul Le Guen. Turning the corner on Saturday. Hits a dead end on Sunday. Much work still to do.

Villain of the Week


Management at Hearts. Some optimism had returned. Then Steven Pressley was dumped again and the gloom descended once more.

Willie McKay or Rod Petrie. Petrie must wonder how keeping his mouth shut has meant becoming involved in a war of words. McKay says Petrie is in the wrong. Thomson and Brown act like children. Somewhere along the line football becomes the loser.
