Today will see the memorial of Scottish football and Rangers legend Walter Smith take place in Glasgow.

Invited guests will gather at Glasgow Cathedral today to celebrate the life of the former Rangers boss after the 73-year-old sadly passed away last month.

The Ibrox club have today revealed that the memorial service is not open to the general public, but they will be streaming the event on their channels throughout the day.

However, fans got the opportunity to pay their respects to Walter Smith as they gathered outside Ibrox on November 3 for the footballing legend's funeral cortège.

Tributes were also paid to him in the House of Commons yesterday as a unifying and “hugely respected” figure in Glasgow.

SNP MP Brendan O’Hara, a Celtic fan, led a debate in the Commons paying tribute to the former football manager.

He said: “Walter Smith’s career hasn’t been a source of great personal joy and happiness for me.

“Far from it.

“Save a brief period as manager of Scotland, Walter’s career was a cause of great personal angst and unhappiness for me, as his team all too regularly wiped the floor with mine.”

But he added: “Walter Smith had a remarkable managerial career, one which will live long in the memory.

“But perhaps more importantly Walter Smith will be remembered as being a thoroughly decent and honourable man.

“A man who despite proudly wearing his Rangers colours managed to cut across the maelstrom of football rivalry in Glasgow, and was a hugely respected figure on the green half of the city too.”
