    I loved Sasa and appreciate everything but think Smith worked with far better LBs in his time.

    Sergio Porrini at right back surely.

    Would also go with big Amo instead of Butcher because he isn't Butcher.

    Amo played a tiny number of games under Walter.

    Perhaps, but Papac was Mr consistent and coaches love a player with consistency. Also gets extra points for being about the only Le Guen signing who knuckled down and didn't sit there with a petted lip.

    Slightly OT, but what happened to him post Rangers?

    Did he do a Hemdani and retire?

    ...and being honest as much as he's a total Kant, Butcher was a far superior central defender than Amo. IMHO of course.

    that team would win the champions league these days.

    Wouldn't be a Walter team without somebody playing out of position...

    That midfield is something else.

    Fair point. In that case Davie Weir. Again because he isn't Butcher.

    Robertson is well remembered on here and was very good for us at Scottish level but he was poor in europe and found out when he moved down south.

    He hardly played down south due to injury so hardly "found out".

    What a team Malpas was top class Papac was very consistent and underrated Butcher although a cock was a great centre back

    Canny believe people suggesting amo and god forbid davie weir instead of terry butcher.

    Butcher was basically john terry in the 80s (ironically also a cok). Amo and weir no where close

    Sasa papac being in that team is frankly bizarre, decent defender that's all

    Love Big Sasa. One of our most under rated players in my lifetime at the club.

    I thought Robertson was a better LB than papac.
    Papac was actually a CB, but still a very good player.

  21. Default Re: Walter Smith picks his best eleven

    My memory of papac was seeing him drive around in an old basic family people carrier car with a kind of dour expression. Clearly didn't care for the high life and was happy to shun the limelight. An excellent proper rangers defender.

  22. Default Re: Walter Smith picks his best eleven

    Davie Robertson at lb was a great player.

    Still some team.

    There is no way that line up is a 4-4-2

    Was he not the winning captain?

    Didn't get the headlines like Romario, Baggio etc but was important part of that Brazil side. From a managers point of view I can see why he'd pick him.

    What a team, would maybe dispute the fullbacks but frightening midfield. Would compete with the best.
