Walter Smith

Walter-Smith1948 –

Walter Smith will perhaps be best remembered for his first stint as manager between 1991 and 1998 when the Ibrox club dominated Scottish football. Smith brought seven League Championship titles, three Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups to Ibrox during this time. He also brought Rangers to within a whisker of the 1993 UEFA Champions League Final during a remarkable treble winning campaign. Walter’s appointment as national team boss brought a marked improvement in results for Scotland, including a famous 1-0 victory over France at Hampden in 2006.

He went back to Ibrox for a second spell in January 2007, winning a further three Scottish Premier League titles, two Scottish Cups and three Scottish league Cups. Smith also took his Rangers side to a UEFA Cup final in 2008, where they would lose 2-0 to Russian club Zenit St Petersburg.
