Congratulations to Liverpool who have been phenomenal all year round and the result against Roma was always going to happen in the second leg because of the style of Liverpool’s attacking play. Andy Robertson, on the other hand, deserves every single piece of praise he is getting and would be worthy of a £40,000,000 price tag. I’ve met Andy a few times and he’s a great lad also very down to earth and working hard to achieve his goals!

Look where he has come from amateur football and Queens Park and is a role model to all the younger kids in Scotland as the fullback stood out against Roma in the first leg and it just goes to show, if you work hard, keep your head straight you can accomplish what you set out to do.

Recently, Rangers have appointed Steven Gerrard as their manager, which will be a great lift for the Gers, and hopefully, Scottish football fans in general, his name at a big club will probably attract more big names to the Scottish game. However, his lack of experience is a worry but we aren’t talking about a man that hasn’t been inside a changing room before, he has won the Champions Leagues and played for his country 114 times, what does Gerrard not know about the game? Despite that, it doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s tough for your first gig as manager but I’m positive that he will give it his all like he’s done in his career.

Another way that could hopefully improve the Scottish game, is summer football. I for one would be in favour of a switch and these are a few reasons why; It’s simple lower prices and that gets bums on seats which in turn equals more revenue. A lot of people slate the Scottish game but so many players come here and struggle with the pace of our game.

Now on to my club. Dundee United, I’m gutted at what has happened at United but I do believe that if Csaba gets time and the money to bring in the players and staff he want’s at the club he will more than likely succeed in turning the club around. Things didn’t go to plan when I went to Bristol Rovers, as I had an injury in the new managers first game and I never managed to get back in the team.

I’m gutted I left the club, I cherish and I did have the chance to go back as Keith Watson got injured but United ended up bringing Mark Wilson in instead of me.

However, I would have regretted not going down to England and giving it a go!! If only I had a chance to go back to prove a lot of people wrong.
