Walter Smith Professional Career

Mr. Smith spent most of his time playing at Dundee United. He rubber-stamped his coaching certificates as assistant manager during a time of unprecedented success for the Tannadice outfit.

Walter was McLean’s right-hand man when they were crowned Premier Division champions in 1983 and joined the European Cup’s semi-finals the following season, losing 3–2 on aggregate to Italian cracks Roma.

He made his mark early at the international level, coaching under 18s and 21s before becoming Alex Ferguson’s assistant coach during the Mexico World Cup in 1986.

Later that year, he joined Graeme Souness at Ibrox to become a glittering 12-years at Ibrox. He won three league titles and four League Cup medals as a key role in the Souness regime, an era dubbed ‘The Rangers Revolution.’

When the legend left Glasgow to join his beloved Liverpool, Sir David Murray gave Smith the first managerial post of his career.

Legendary Walter Smith, an Ibrox Icon

The legend kept the momentum going after Souness’s leave and reached the trophy milestone during a glorious 1996-1997 season that made humble Walter an Ibrox icon.

The Ibrox icon left Rangers after Celtic reached the 1998 league title and one month after that worked as the manager of Everton, where he remained for the following four years.

He left in the wake of a demoralizing FA Cup defeat against Middlesbrough in 2002 and the risk of relegation from England’s top effort.

A short time at Manchester United followed where he was joined with pal Sir Alex Ferguson before returning home to manage the national team in 2004.

He couldn’t resist the urge to return to Ibrox in 2007 when the call came leading the Gers to the title for three years on the trot before the club’s 54th top effort gong under his belt.

  • Smith managed Gers to:
  • nine top-flight titles
  • five Scottish Cups
  • six League Cups
  • one UEFA Cup runners-up medal
  • but losing the final in Manchester to Zenit St Petersburg in 2008

    Writing an article based on tweets and here say is weak and disrespectful to the person and the family.
