Don's Doom and Gloom

Don's Doom and Gloom

Don Cowie will be one of the few players surely exempt from Craig Burley's damning words in the press this week.

The former Celtic and Borussia Dortmund midfielder has slammed Scotland's players for being 'too thick' to understand his uncle, George Burley's, coaching methods.

Hornet's maestro Cowie, who won his first cap last month in Japan, made his first start for the Tartan Army last Saturday, but his side crashed 3-0 against Wales. The result costing Burley his job just 14 games into his tenure.

And, with just three wins from those fourteen and failure to qualify for South Africa 2010, it's a surprise Burley has lasted as long as possible in the post.

A presumably sufficiently intellectual Don had this to say:

'Everything had been going great for me this season. Club football was good and I was flying last Saturday knowing I was starting. To go from such a high to the worst possible low is unimaginable,' he told the Scottish Sun.

'I've had a few sore points in my career but at international level there's no doubt a defeat like that hurts so much more.

'The last thing I want is to be remembered for the Wales game and I don't want that to be my last cap. I was so incredibly proud to be representing my country, it was a lifelong ambition.'


All together now -fingers crossed they don't come in for big Malky!
