Keep focussed

It's best not to lose sight of what is important. The recent form of Kris Commons is becoming a bit of a worry The team would benefit if he was rested for the next match. His contributions of late seem to be to stand beside Ki and tell him how far to hit it over the bar.

I'm not convinced that we will win the league. Rangers are looking a spent force which started with the loss of McCulloch. But if Jelavic comes back and with the continuation of the kind of jamminess that sticks to them like jam they could still do it.

We sometimes think that society has changed but the blinkered assessments of Wednesday night are beggaring belief. MB committed a common assault on Hooper when he raked the back of his leg - he never even tried for the ball - it was very nasty and a straight red.

However on a brighter note it is looking obvious that McCoist will never make it as a manager. He would have a big enough job even with a good squad but they will need to bring in some new players - and what can they afford. Next year should be a good one for us if we can offload, bring in some new people and keep Kayal and Hooper.

Lennon would get one over on McCoist next year but will he be there? At the end of the match Thompson dragged him away and looked to Mjallby to escort him once Neil was on his own. To me they recognised that he was a bit of a loose cannon. I can't see that as the type of behaviour the club would want. I like Lennon and I would want him to stay but not if he continues like that.

For tomorrow rest Commons and get Forrest back in. Six or seven nil. Then bring Commons back for the cup final as he would probably score, just don't let him talk to Ki.
