A clip has emerged online showing another side to Rangers manager Walter Smith as he’s videoed singing a rendition of a famous Beatles song.

Taking to the stage with a live band, Smith lets down his hair and sings I Saw Her Standing There by the Beatles in a warm and positive rendition of the song.

A passionate music lover, this fun-loving clip will come as no surprise to those who knew Smith, who sadly passed away this week at the age of 73.

According to those who knew him, the legendary former Rangers manager was a perfect blend of serious and fun whenever he needed to be.

Smith’s famous stare and often stern exterior was juxtaposed with a sharp wit and passion for life and this little clip gives a small insight into the relaxed character of the man.

It’s genuinely heart-warming to see and it’s not the only clip which shows another side to Smith away from the professional, authoritative character he was often positioned as.
