Sports Letters: No passport to success

Sir: Let's not get carried away about Manchester United's Premier League championship. They have no divine right to win the European Cup next season and with the number of 'foreigners' they have as their first-choice team they have no chance.

As a Rangers fan I watched frustrated, under Souness, as Rangers played one team for the league and one for Europe. Walter Smith now has the balance right. Alex Ferguson could buy Roy Keane, David Platt and Nigel Clough, but he has to make these players gel into the side and as Souness has found out at Liverpool, you can buy players but they don't necessarily fit your team.

Good luck Man Utd and forget the Milan final - you'll be playing Rangers.

Yours sincerely,
