If Walter takes over then would be good to see the RST recommending Murray Park being renamed in honour of Walter Smith, a real club legend, how about 'Smith Academy'? Seems fitting for someone who may just save the future of our club.

I don't think Walters the kind of guy who'd be comfortable getting the training ground named after him tbh.

This should happen anyway.

Every glorious moment that could come our way in the future should be celebrate in the same way it would be once baws had been inserted into Kelly Brooks Lower East Side.

Small potatoes but even then I doubt it.

Good point.

Its a pretty minuscule point and far from true.

Good point.

Surely it could still get changed?

The Walter Smith Stand instead of the Broomloan?

I'm sure the scum would love it :)

Anyway just a idea.

Thank him? For stepping in when its already to late, when somebody else has had to shoulder the responsibilty? Too little, too late from these guys.

I will give my support because the man is a true legend, but to treat him like some sort of saviour? Na

Walter Smith is hardly likely to authorise a change. Murray is his friend. A name-change would seem like a petty and vindictive act. I don't think Smith is that kind of man.

If Smith takes over, I expect 'Murray Park' to live on.

He's far too modest for statues/training grounds named after him etc while he is living.

Regardless of whether he takes over or not, the Govan Stand should have been named after him already.

Struth & Smith towering over the Ibrox pitch - Perfect.

How about we wait and see if he takes over ?

Dear me.

The sad part of this thread is your contribution to it.

My apologies, Number_Eight. That was out of order.

I've had one too many.

That friendship is or has evaporated.

Auchenhowie will be renamed in a manner fit to the Rangers FC

If Smith takes over, I don't think so.

I can undertand the Green consortium wanting to be populist with such a move, but I really cannot imagine Walter Smith authorising a name-change at Murray Park.

I believe the basic decency of Walter Smith would stop him from letting this happen.

How could a friend do such a thing to another friend, even if he's now a former friend(which is by no means certain)?

If Smith takes over, I suspect that the Murray Park renaming issue will fade away - and I won't hold it against him if it does.
