Glasgow is an incredibly exciting place. It is a football city and we all know that there is a division there. Are you Celtic or are you Rangers. But what we can all unite on is our admiration for Walter Smith.

There is deep respect for that man and his success, no matter which side you are supporting.

I was lucky enough to meet Walter on several occasions. Funny how certain people can impress you and he was so warm and talkative.

Rangers legend Walter Smith has passed away at the age of 73, it was announced Tuesday.

He was also modest, he never wanted the conversation to be about himself and his accomplishments. It’s probably hard to do, considering how much he accomplished at Ibrox.

I am definitely not the only person of Celtic persuasion who was saddened by Tuesday’s news and that is testament to the way Walter conducted himself as the Rangers coach.

Read tributes, like Ally McCoist’s, and you will see why this man was so loved. He was a wonderful person, a family man, and a wonderful manager.

Returning to a club for a second term is risky, but Walter only improved his reputation with the Rangers.

The team that led to the 2008 UEFA Cup final showed what it could get out of the players. He could inspire a team like few other coaches.

Celtic expressed their condolences yesterday and I also want to send my condolences to all of Walter’s family and friends. This man with Rangers in his blood will be missed by all.
