Rangers coach Gregory Vignal wishes Alex McLeish well for “new project”

Former Rangers star and current Gers youth academy coach Gregory Vignal has been wishing former Gers boss Alex McLeish well for “his new project”.
Former Scotland boss McLeish was somewhat cruelly catapulted from his role at the helm of the national side and hung out to dry by members of the SFA and the press.
It’s great to see him back on the horse, although Gregory Vignal doesn’t reveal any details of the project.


McLeish’s removal from the Scotland job back in April was a terrible indictment of the issues in Scottish football.

Whilst there are questions over the original appointment, there was plenty of politics on display in his dismissal.
Alex Mcleish was never truly given a fair crack of the whip, with his time as Rangers boss even coming in for criticism.
Steve Clarke has since taken over the role but is finding out very quickly the challenge of overturning the national team’s fortunes.

There is absolutely no doubting he deserved to be treated with more respect and dignity in the wake of his sacking.
Now, it looks like it’s on to pastures new for the 60-year-old. Let’s hope it’s a role where Big Eck is given more credit and respect for what he has achieved in the game.
