McColl wants top tier
Cambuslang Rangers manager Paul McColl insists the club should be in the top tier of west regional junior football.
But he is also aware it will take an almighty push to get there and no matter who comes out on top in Saturday’s clash with second-placed Renfrew, McColl reckons it would still be too early to rule out anyone in the title chase.
“I see Cambuslang as a big club and I believe they deserve to be in the top division,”McColl said.
“You want to be in that top four because if you finish in the play-offs in fifth or sixth you could be playing a decent team.
“But we’re miles off that at the moment and we need to take one game at a time. We’re not getting carried away. And we hope to pick up the points on Saturday.
“It’s way too early [to predict a league winner] because if you have two bad results it can all change .
“Two years ago we got promoted with three minutes left and last year we won the league with the last kick of the ball so we know it can go right down to the end.”
In their November league meeting at New Western Park, the Wee Gers outplayed Renfrew.
McColl continued:“We played really well that day and won 4-0 last time.
“But they’ve picked up since then and have signed a few more players.
“They’re second in the league and they are there on merit.
“They’ve won a lot of games and people have said they will fall away after Christmas but they are still there.”
