THEY left it late. Heartbreakingly late, as it happens.Bristol City, magnificent to a man all night, were beaten by Sergio Aguero’s header deep into stoppage time.This game, this brilliant game of ours, can be so cruel sometimes.Pep needed his main man, turning to Aguero in the 70th minute when he could not find a way to win this first leg.The Argentinian delivered, steering Bernardo Silva’s left-footed cross beyond Bristol City keeper Frank Fielding.Such a shame.Nobody, not even the great Pep, would have complained if Bristol City had protected a 1-1 draw at the Etihad. They dared to dream at the home of the big boys and that, it must be said, is something special.Bristol City have a chance in the second leg at Ashton Gate, but it is a very slim one indeed.To score one goal, as little Bobby Reid did from the penalty spot, against a side with Manchester City’s clout is impressive.To score at least two, to stop them powering into the Carabao Cup final against either … [Read more...] about Manchester City 2 Bristol City 1: Sergio Aguero heads injury-time winner to earn first-leg lead

0 Have your say In the cynical, money obsessed world of football, it’s pleasing to know some honour still exists. When Stephen Dobbie left Queen of the South nine years ago to begin the second act of a fascinating career he assured chairman David Rae it wasn’t goodbye forever. Being a farmer, Rae likely feared what Queens would get back, providing Dobbie was even good enough to keep his promise. A striker fit for the knacker’s yard? Dobbie has trashed such a notion.This adopted son of Dumfries looks lean and remains hungry for goals; 20 already this season, including his 100th for the club in two spells, struck two days before Christmas Day in a 3-2 defeat by St Mirren. Now 35, he claims he is fitter than ever. Those who remember him in his chunkier Hibs days, or perhaps at St Johnstone, where he says he tipped the scales at 14 st, might register a little surprise at this transformation. “Even when I show my kids photos of me playing when I was at … [Read more...] about Interview: Stephen Dobbie on ‘fat’ days at Hibs and Queens glory
BOBBY MADDEN will take charge of this weekend’s Old Firm clash at Celtic Park.David McGeachie and Alastair Mather are the whistler’s assistants for Saturday’s match, a lunchtime kick-off set to be shown on Sky Sports.Madden was taken out of the firing line in March after his derby debut – a 1-1 draw between Celtic and Rangers at Parkhead – ended in controversy.He was criticised after snubbing a late penalty claim by Leigh Griffiths after the Hoops striker was brought down by Clint Hill.Rangers fans also had a pop at Madden for not sending off Bhoys skipper Scott Brown for a challenge on Jason Holt.But the Griffiths incident sparked fury among the Hoops faithful.And after the game the Scotland hero claimed Madden asked HIM if Hill got a touch on the ball during their collision.Griffiths said: “It was a penalty. He has not touched the ball and the referee is asking me afterwards if he touched the ball.“If he has not touched the ball he has got to … [Read more...] about Bobby Madden confirmed as referee for Celtic against Rangers nine months on from controversial Old Firm derby debut
THEY sacked both Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha for coming up short, so surely those in charge at Ibrox owe supporters a good look at their own performance.The lack of class in the Rangers boardroom was summed up by their reaction to Derek McInnes’ humiliating snub this week.Instead of retreating to lick their wounds, the Ibrox club issued a statement insisting: “We were subsequently made aware by Aberdeen’s statement that, at this stage in his career, it would be best for him to remain in his current post.“We endorse that because moving to a massive club like Rangers is a big step with concomitant risk. We will only appoint someone in whom we have full confidence and who feels he is ready for the job.”What a mouthful of self-regarding drivel.Instead of playing to the gallery, Rangers should be asking themselves how they managed to botch an appointment that should have been a gimme.After sacking Caixinha it would only have taken Dave King to meet … [Read more...] about The Rangers board have embarrassed the club with the Derek McInnes saga – Gers fans deserve BETTER says Davie Provan
