Mendes talks up Rangers title chances

Former Rangers star Pedro Mendes is confident his old club can win the SPL title without his services. Rangers sold Mendes to Sporting Lisbon over the weekend as they look to reduce their costs.

"They will win the league. There is no doubt in my mind," the 30 year old told the Daily Record.

"There is a long way to go but the way they are performing and their attitude, it is so good."

Mendes also praised Smith and admitted it was a privilege to work under the former Scotland chief.

"I have worked under some top managers and Walter is right up there," added Mendes. "It was a pleasure to work under him.

"He's a great manager. Football wise and, as a man, he is a nice person and a real gentleman.

"I was delighted to have been given the chance to work under his command."
