Of Ye Go My Son?

According to the BBC, Rangers manager Walter Smith and his Ibrox assistant Ally McCoist found out that they had lost 'old firm' goal hero Daniel Cousin's to Hull while watching TV last night!

Yesterday Smith told Sky Sports that he had no plans to offload Cousin's stating...

"He's not going anywhere as far as I know, I haven't had any enquiries for any of our players and if he plays the way he played against Celtic then we will obviously be delighted."

Well higher up the Rangers hierarchy they had other ideas. Cousin's moved to Hull for a rumored 3.5 million last night (the fee was undisclosed by Rangers) and he could make his debut for the Tigers away to Newcastle on the 13th.

At most clubs the manager is the one who makes decisions on the comings and goings of players. Smith should be concerned about his future, as a manager who does not control the team will not be managing for long!

After all this is not the Baseball world of 'general managers', this is association football where the gaffer is the gaffer and the ball stops at his feet...Most of the time.

It's Cousin. Singular. He's French.
