The Ibrox outfit announced on Sunday that former manager Smith and retired businessman Ian Hart had joined the board as non-executive directors.

McCoist told the club's website: "The one thing you can guarantee is that Walter will ensure that decisions are being made in terms of the best interests of the football club and the supporters.

"It's a clever move by Charles Green to get someone of Walter's stature on the board.

"I'm really pleased that Walter is back. I am in regular contact with him and I'm lucky enough to count on him as a very good friend.

"It's a great move for the club, a tremendous move for the supporters and

hopefully it will prove to be a very good move for Walter.

"He was eager to make the point that he won't be standing on my toes. We had a good couple of conversations and he wanted to make it crystal clear to everyone.

"It's a brilliant thing for me because he is great contact between me and the

board."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
