RIP, Walter. What an excellent career he had.

First person I ever played against at senior level. I ran about a lot but don`t think I managed to get a tackle in on him?

This still makes me laugh

I thought he was underrated as a manager and didn't quite get the credit he deserved down South. Fergie rated him highly though so I guess that's not bad backing to have. RIP.

One of the greatest managers to grace the Scottish Leagues. I would imagine he deserves a minutes applause at least at all the grounds for all he has done in Scottish football. RIP Walter. Very sad news.

There will be a minutes silence at all games this midweek. Rightly so.

A real gentleman and superb manager. Had a really great career. Always remember seeing him at the memorial service for Norrie.
Fair enough the 9 in a row titles won with the defunct Ibrox outfit are forever tainted by the financial irregularities but I would imagine he didn't have much to do with that.
Good manager, nice chap. RIP

Tonight was one of the best observed minutes silence ever. And fittingly so.
