IT’S a been busy day in the football world – and that’s before the matches kick off.
Rangers fans should be smiling after Dave King claimed victory in the boardroom battle and he’ll take over on Friday or possibly earlier.
Is this the start of better times for the Ibrox club – or is there still a massive amount of work to do on and off the park? Should King bring in a new manager straight away or do Rangers’ odds reflect their chances of promotion.
McBookie.com are offering 3-1 Rangers will be go up to the Premiership and 2-9 they fail thus spending at least one more year in the Championship.
Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “There is no doubt the feelgood factor is back at Ibrox but whether they can find their form on the football field is another matter. We still make them favourites to be promoted but the odds are against them.”
Hibs are 7-2 to win the play-offs and go up with champions Hearts while it’s 4-1 St Mirren, 4-1 Ross County, 4-1 Motherwell and 13-1 QoS.
Elsewhere the football world is mourning the loss of Dave Mackay so comment here if you want to add to the tributes paid earlier to the Scotland legend.
In England Dave Whelan has quit as Wigan chairman after 20 years – should Malky Mackay be next to go or can he keep the Latics up?
