Sorry Paul

Let's hope that Alex Ferguson is feeling benign in Moscow.

If he chooses to play his Scottish talisman Darren Fletcher (alright, I know talisman's a bit strong) then Paul Lambert will no longer be the "last Scotsman to play on Europe's greatest stage."

No offence to Paul but it was making journalists lazy, it made him look like some sort of Champion's League rent a quote and it was, frankly, embarrassing that we boasted about one Scot playing 15 years ago or whenever it was.

So go on Darren, do something for your country.

A Scotsman playing in Moscow. A Scotsman managing in Moscow. And a Scottish team in Manchester. Happy days are here again.
