On the pitch it has not been a good season for Stirling Albion they are currently seven games without a win, second bottom of the Scottish First Division, would be bottom if it wasn’t for Dundee’s point deduction. Let’s not dwell on the negatives though. Today Jocky Scott was announced as the new manager and he has a fight against his old club Dundee if he wants to keep them in the First Division. Jocky has a player in Gordon Smith that has the qualities to fire the team to safety.

Nineteen year old Gordon Smith is currently on loan from Hearts till the end of the season. has scored seven goals in fifteen games and if Jocky Scott can get Gordon back on the scoresheet regularly then Stirling will have a great chance of staying up.

I’d like to welcome the Editor of World Football Columns – Martin Palazzotto to gibfootballshow, Martin is an outsider from a Scottish football point of view, no bias, no conspiracy just a fantastic writer. Here is his take on the Neil Lennon situation.

When I was a kid, like every other, I would go to my father whenever my mother said I couldn’t have something that I wanted.  If he said no too, well, that was what grandparents were for.  I think that’s where the legal appeals process originated.

Like my childhood self, Celtic manager Neil Lennon doesn’t enjoy taking no for an answer.  It’s been two months since the “Hassle at the ‘Castle” but Lennon has refused to give up the fight or his paranoid conspiracy theories regarding Scottish referees.

I mean, everyone has calls go against them but when you’re Celtic, part of the Old Firm, the most storied club in the land and there’s only one other team to worry about, Rangers, who are now chasing you rather than vice versa, thanks to the biggest snowfall the country has seen since Sean Connery first said “Hello Moneypenny” back in 1962, you have to believe you’re getting more than your share of the breaks.
