Perhaps I’m biased, but for my money there isn’t a better professional football league in the world than the Scottish Championship. This season especially has had more twists, turns and backstabbing than a typical series of Line of Duty and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Falkirk FC are of course the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion of patter this season, of that there is no doubt, but every Rock needs their Austin. Step forward, Greenock Morton.
The dust has begun to settle on what can only be described as a remarkable season for Alloa Athletic. The Championship table had twists and turns and it wasn’t till the final kick on the final day that our fate was sealed with a point at Somerset enough to maintain our second-tier status. There are…
A divided support, a closed section and a cup final ahead. What’s all the fuss about in Gorgie? ‘League won in September’, cup final in May and a 20,000 seater stadium nearing capacity every other week – you’d be forgiven for thinking that Hearts fans are happy about their season so far. Following another predictable…

The winter break is over! Wipe the sleep from your eyes, knock the remnants of a James Tavernier flung snowball from your hair, briefly register the shock of Auchinleck Talbot’s giant killing triumph in the cup and strap in for the return of the Scottish Premiership.
One of the stories of the season has been the appointment of Steven Gerrard as Rangers manager. Ahead of tonight’s Kilmarnock versus Rangers clash (with added Jordan Jones flavoured spice ) two Pure Fitbaw writers had a quick WhatsApp conversation rating Gerrard’s time at Ibrox so far.
You can feel it; that chill in the air, the darkness when you leave for work and darkness on your return home. The constant defrosting of your car in the morning and the taking down of the Christmas tree. There really is not a lot to look forward to in the month of January. Except for the January sales, of course. The thrill of trying to snag the bargain buys that will see you through the year. Well, my friends Dave King, Mark Allan and Steven Gerrard were first in the queue this year: picking up the bargains before anyone else even had a chance to browse through the rack.
Alloa Athletic are currently in the midst of the most important month of their season. The January transfer window always brings its opportunities for club’s to transform their season, however, with that it can derail a team with too many changes. We enter the halfway point in the season in the best possible fettle. Alloa…
Three lacklustre performances from Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in a row have highlighted the side’s lack of a creative spark in the middle of the park. Unable to break through the lines, playing in front of the opposition and not being able to break down low blocks are just some of the valid criticisms made about recent play. Are Rangers missing Josh Windass?
Rangers’ mindset and tactics were all wrong for the Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final game before a ball was kicked and, as the game unfolded at Hampden, Celtic took control.

So what are three changes Rangers could make for when they meet again this Sunday?
