Strachan wary of Hamilton

The Celtic manager Gordon Strachan warned against expectations of an easy win when his side take on struggling Hamilton tomorrow. The champions will travel to New Douglas Park top of the table after nine successive wins and on the back of arguably the most one-sided league game of the season when they coasted to a 3-0 home win over Kilmarnock on Wednesday. By contrast, after a bright start to their first season in the SPL, Billy Reid's young side find themselves already facing the prospect of a relegation battle having failed to win any of their last eight games. However, Strachan, pointed to a shock defeat at Falkirk two seasons ago when his side lost 1-0 to a Steven Thompson goal.

Ian McColl: Rangers stalwart and successful Scotland manager

When Ian McColl left school, he headed for the gothic tower of Glasgow University. It is a measure of how well he embraced one extra-curricular activity while there that his life would eventually be better known for his achievements under the rather different Twin Towers of Wembley Stadium. For any Scot, playing against England is the stuff of dreams. To manage a Scotland side that beats the auld enemy in their spiritual home, however, is rare indeed. McColl oversaw a 2-1 triumph over England at Wembley in 1963 which made Scotland the British champions.

Boyd's striking performances make him favourite for Smith

Kris Boyd's stunning strike against Partick Thistle showed why he will be in Walter Smith's starting line-up more often than not, the Rangers manager has said.

Miller pulls the strings as Davis and Novo keep Rangers in front

Steven Davis and substitute Nacho Novo both claimed their first goals of the season to keep Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premier League with a win over Motherwell at Ibrox yesterday. Both players struck in the second half before David Clarkson pulled a goal back with a few minutes remaining

McCarthy shines but Driver lifts Hearts

Andrew Driver maintained Heart of Midlothian's impressive start to the season as his decisive goal left Hamilton Academical mulling over the harsh facts of life in the top flight. The hosts displayed a defensive charity which will be punished at this level. Their manager, Billy Reid, will be aware of the bigger picture. That his club is even here at all is a minor miracle. The remarkable rise of Hamilton since returning to their home town in 2003, after eight nomadic years without a ground, ought to be a template for others in these credit-crunched times.

I will be at Rangers for the long haul, insists Aaron

The Spanish midfielder Aaron Niguez maintains he is not looking beyond Glasgow after beginning his two-year loan spell with Rangers. The 19-year-old Valencia player got his first taste of action for Rangers on Tuesday night when he impressed in a 70-minute run-out during a practice game against Kilmarnock at Murray Park. Rangers are thought to have the option to sign Aaron for £2m when the loan deal expires, but fans fear he could move on.

Brian Viner: Crazy game can make you sane again

You don't have to dislike football to welcome the new Premier League season with arms firmly folded. The first Saturday of the season, heralding another nine-month burst of feuds between managers, savaging of referees, flawless triple Salchows with pike in the penalty area, and men on £100,000 a week agitating for better pay deals, always seems to arrive just a little soon. This is not, however, a broadside questioning the sanity of those of us still in love with the beautiful game, despite its disfiguring scars. On the contrary, it is intended, on the very day that we roll our eyes at the thought of more Premier League madness, to show football can do wonders for one's sanity.
