'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Houston acknowledges Rangers' quality

Peter Houston reckons that his role as Scotland assistant manager has merely reconfirmed in his own mind just how strong the Rangers side is.

But at the same time he also feels that working with their players in the past does provide him with some additional insight as to their capabilities.

"There's a lot of Rangers guys in the national squad. I know their qualities now," he told BBC Scotland. "I'm not sure it's an advantage, but it shows you how good these players are."

Houston recently teamed up with ex-Arabs manager Craig Levein for Scotland's double-header against Lithuania and Liechtenstein, with their squad including seven players from Rangers.

"There are players in the squad I hadn't worked with before," he added. "For example, Allan McGregor is a far better goalkeeper than I thought he was. His handling, communication, kicking are all excellent.

"Kenny Miller as well - having seen him on the training pitch, you see just what a fantastic finisher he is. So you see different aspects to players and understand how they've got to the clubs they're at.

"But I don't think it gives me any advantage. I just think it shows me how hard my Dundee United side will need to work against Rangers to try and get any kind of positive result because of the quality they've got."
