McColl wants top tier

Rutherglen Reformer - - Juniors - Mur­ray Spooner

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.”
