Recognition Of Walter Smith

EDM number 1823 in 2010-12, proposed by Gregory Campbell on 17/05/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Sports.

That this Houserecognises the outstanding achievements of Walter Smith, recently retired manager of Glasgow Rangers FC, having guided the club to a Scottish Premier League 54th league title which was the third consecutive triumph at a time when the club's future was uncertain due to takeover speculation, and when the club had very scarce resources which itself led to a very small playing squad; and expresses hope that steps have already been taken to ensure that Mr Smith, who has been widely acknowledged by numerous football professionals on and off the pitch as being one of the most successful Scottish football managers in the past 50 years, will be suitably recognised in the forthcoming honours announcements.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
