Well, I am back in circulation now. After the prize turkey that was last week's FA Cup Final, the Scottish version yesterday was refreshing. No one would claim that we were watching the best footballers on the planet, but we weren't last week, either. What we did see was the underdogs have a real go and give their opponents a real fright. I feared for Queen of the South when they went 2-0 behind in the first half. At that point, it would have been so easy for them to capitulate and have finished with a real hiding. However, they got their breath back at half time and came out for the second half with all guns blazing. When they levelled at 2-2, Rangers were under major pressure. Full credit to the Rangers players, however, for dredging up the energy for one last flurry and Kris Boyd's winning goal was deserved, for the player as well as his team.
