What a week for Scottish football first they drop captain and goalie over ‘drinks session’ and then Ferguson was axed as Rangers captain. Next up was that the Scottish FA ban Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor for life which was then followed by the news that Ferguson and McGregor are on the Rangers transfer list:
Failure to heed the orders of Walter Smith in the aftermath of a drinking session six days ago has called time on the Rangers and Scotland careers of Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor.
The errant duo were today suspended for a fortnight and fined wages for the same period by Rangers as the fallout from last Sunday’s antics at the Cameron House hotel reached epic proportions. Ferguson has been stripped of the captaincy; privately it has been made clear neither will play for the club again.
Smith contacted his players on Monday to stress they should accept whatever punishment came their way, and with good grace. However matters took a turn for the worse as Ferguson and McGregor were clearly pictured and filmed making offensive gestures before kick-off on Wednesday as they sat among the Scotland substitutes for the Iceland game.
