Ferguson insists McGregor is better than Gordon

first_imgBarry Ferguson insists Allan McGregor is a better goalkeeper than international teammate Craig Gordon.The former Rangers midfielder believes if there’s any position his old club have a player than rivals Celtic, it’s the goalkeeping position, thanks to the presence of McGregor.McGregor, who returned to Ibrox on a free transfer earlier in the summer, has been perhaps the most impressive addition out of the many that Steven Gerrard has made since becoming Rangers manager.The 36-year-old made some incredible saves both in the league and in Europe, where he helped Rangers reach the group stages of the UEFA Europa League.Speaking to The Daily Record ahead of Scotland’s match away to Albania, the Ferguson said:GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - AUGUST 08: Craig Gordon of Celtic attempts to save the ball during the UEFA Champions League Qualifier between Celtic and AEK Athens at Celtic Park Stadium on August 8, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

His glove rival Craig Gordon has done nothing wrong, he’s a top keeper, but Allan is on a different planet.”“When he rejoined Rangers I said he’d be their best signing because he’s worth 12-15 points a season. He is Rangers’ most influential player by far, an exceptional keeper and a born winner.”Even Scotland head coach Alex McLeish opted to go for McGregor ahead of Gordon, as Scotland defeated Albania 4-0 on Saturday.McGregor may be approaching the end of his career but the Gers shot-stopper looks like he has two or three good seasons left in him if he can stay injury free.last_img read more

State to raze dangerous part of Vivekananda Road flyover

first_imgKolkata: The state government has decided to pull down the dangerous portion of Vivekananda Road flyover between Posta intersection and Ganesh Talkies.The decision was taken at a high-level meeting which was attended by the senior officials of Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA), Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and Kolkata Police. The officials have inspected the site. In three week’s time, the team will come up with a date when the stretch on the flyover, that has been termed “dangerous”, will be pulled down.

A 41-metre iron slab of the flyover fell on April 1, 2016. Twenty-six people died and 11 were injured in the incident. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had visited the site and supervised the debris cleaning operation herself.

The estimated cost of the project was Rs 168 crore in 2008 when it was commissioned. Ashok Bhattacharya was the then Urban Development minister when the proposal was cleared in Delhi. When a portion of the flyover collapsed in 2016, around 75 percent of the construction of the bridge was completed. The construction of the flyover was mooted to ease Howrah-bound traffic movement from East Kolkata. From the very first day after the construction began, there had been movement to stop the process because of its faulty design. Development Employees Joint Action Committee had opposed its construction. After the construction of the flyover, it was found that many residents could not open the windows of their flats as the boundary wall of the structure was just two feet away from their buildings. But, the Left Front government refused to listen to their objection and finally went ahead with the project. As per the design of the flyover, the stretch on the road towards Howrah from the Vivekananda Road side was wider than the one coming from Howrah. Many engineers had also pointed out the faulty design.last_img read more
