David Templeton: Chasing international debut

Previous manager Craig Levein selected Rangers midfielder Ian Black for the August friendly win over Australia, he had concerns that players from the third tier of Scottish football could step up to international level.

Rangers winger Templeton has never made a full Scotland squad, but he hopes to be given a chance to shine under Strachan.

"Hopefully he'll not shut the door on anyone here and if I'm playing well it would be nice to think I might get a chance," said Templeton.

"With him being a winger himself, he might like that type of player and if I play well hopefully I can get a chance."

Meanwhile, the Rangers Fans Fighting Fund will underwrite any legal costs incurred if it is deemed necessary to challenge the potential stripping of SPL titles.

An independent commission chaired by Lord Nimmo Smith will begin a hearing into alleged undisclosed payments made by Rangers to players before the club went into liquidation.

The current Rangers regime are not co-operating with the inquiry but the fans' group, which raised more than #500,000 after the oldco club went into administration, is standing by to fund any potential appeal.

A spokesman for the fans' group said: "It is absolutely crucial that Rangers' titles remain untouched.

"But because there has been a long-running campaign in the media and within certain other clubs to punish Rangers, we must do everything within our power to protect the club's proud history.

"Every fair-minded person knows where these titles belong and we will not sit back and allow anyone to have them removed."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
