Walter Smith has been pictured with Pep Guardiola as the ex-Rangers boss travelled to a League Manager’s Association event where the Man City boss was speaking.

The special leadership event was about Pep sharing a “fascinating evening of insights” with managers across the UK.

A football man and a great managerial mind himself, Smith obviously couldn’t resist going along. The legendary Rangers manager is also pictured alongside Cardiff manager Neil Warnock and former England boss Sam Allardyce.

Guardiola has had a monumental career in management and is widely regarded as the best coach in world football. The Spaniard has won 25 trophies across spells with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

Getting any insight into his knowledge of the beautiful game would be fascinating and no wonder Walter Smith went along.

There’s also no doubt Pep would’ve enjoyed sharing a few words with the legendary Rangers’ Manager too. Walter Smith is also a highly revered figure in football.

Like Guardiola, the Gers Manager is an out-and-out winner. Walter Smith won 21 trophies across two spells at Ibrox and is considered a true legend in Govan.

Many believed, particularly at the start of the season, that there’s a great deal of similarities between Walter Smith’s Rangers side, and that of Steven Gerrard’s.

I wonder if Walter Smith and Pep Guardiola found the time to discuss the Scouser’s progress at the club during their conversation?
