Guest writer Alan Temple looks at why David Goodwillie and Kenny Miller must give serious thought to any offers from abroad which come their way this January.

 

There is a real temptation to file Kenny Miller’s link to Fiorentina/Marseille and David Goodwillie’s supposed interest from Kaiserslautern firmly under ‘B.S. for Bullsh*t Scotland’; a folder which, incidentally, is already looking obscenely rotund following the insertion of Scott Brown to Inter Milan, Kris Boyd to Lazio and Adam Rooney to Kuban Krasnodar in recent weeks.

However, if there proves to be substance behind these links then it would be foolhardy for the two players to cast aside moves which could potentially shape and enhance the rest of their playing days, and their potential coaching careers beyond that, simply because they could earn more money in the sickeningly wealthy Barclay’s Premier League.

The list of Scottish players who have chosen moves abroad in recent years (for the sake of brevity let’s call ‘recent times’ the last 25 years) ahead of moves down south or to the Old Firm is a fairly short, yet illustrious, roll-call of talent – and the experiences gained, the good habits picked up and the new football philosophies awakened in some of these players should serve as a lure for Kenny and David to shake of this island mentality and broaden their horizons.

Rangers' forward Steven Naismith vies with Manchester United's Ryan Giggs -Champions League action in pictures

A disappointing night at Ibrox tonight, both teams not learning from the mistakes of the first game. For me Sir Alex got his team selection wrong, no width where it mattered, Rangers didn’t attack enough when in possession. Everything that went wrong can be found in my STV article that depicted the first game http://bit.ly/huQyL6

It took Manchester United 176 minutes to break down the Rangers defence and Walter can take credit from that, but he needs to find a way of playing with this tight defensive system and letting the players break forward when they have the ball. Scottish teams aren’t good enough to play tiki-taka passing up the field and play round the opponents.
