Rangers boss dismisses suggestions he will retire at end of season

The quest for four trophies remains on track after Thursday night's dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Fiorentina saw Rangers book a place in the UEFA Cup final.

The CIS Insurance Cup is already residing in the Ibrox trophy room, while the Scottish Cup and the SPL are also still very much up for grabs.

A clean-sweep would see Smith, 60, confirm his status as a club legend, having already played a major role in delivering nine consecutive titles during his first spell in the 1990s.

But the veteran boss, who returned to the Glasgow giants in January 2007, has no plans to retire on the back of such success if Rangers do triumph on all fronts.

"I keep reading that that will happen," he said. "But when I came back to Rangers from the national team job I signed a contract for three-and-a-half years and my intention is to see that out. That's just the way it is."
