I've not worked with him for a number of years now, but if he’s the same manager he was back then, I’d say this is a good appointment for ScotlandALEX McLEISH invited me to his house in Milngavie when I was on the verge of signing for Rangers. As I walked in through the front door I was a little nervous about how the conversation might go. By the time I walked out I felt ten feet tall. I’ll be honest about this, it didn’t matter to me who was the manager at Ibrox at that time.
Why do we have someone like Alan McRae calling the shots in Scottish Football? What a mess the Honorary President of Cove Rangers has made of thingsIF I owned the local corner shop I wouldn’t waltz into Tesco and start telling them how to sell fruit and veg. Likewise, if I owned a small car lot I wouldn’t barge into Bentley and point out how to punt motors. So why then do we have someone like Alan McRae calling the shots in Scottish football?
It's worth remembering that Cochrane smashed John McGinn in his first Edinburgh derby, so he can't have it all waysIt’ll probably take a few years before it dawns on him. But when Scott Brown thudded down on top of him at Celtic Park on Tuesday night he was doing him a favour. The best midfielder in Scotland just taught him something that in time will make him a better player. Craig Levein sees it differently. Or, at least publicly, he does right now.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
