    QOS Legend.

    Still fit as a fiddle, scores great goals, contributes to the team performance and links superbly with Dobbie.

    But still our Manager doesn't recognise all of those qualities and marginalises him as much as he can.

    Some might say well he keeps getting injured but Naysmith was leaving him out earlier in the season for other reasons.

    Mainly to 'fit in' his old pal McFadden who was a complete failure - he couldn't even deliver a decent corner or free-kick anymore. Oh, and of course, to make sure Dykes got to play every game.

    I really would love to know what Clubs were interested in him which led to his contract being extended and why we didn't say 'On you go'.

    Another set of baffling, incompetent decisions from this Manager.

    Derek Lyle on the front page of the Daily Record. Appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court and fined £4500 for insulting the Police after the April 2016 incident with his Dad and Uncle at his Bishopbriggs pub, yet the four involved got off scot free last year.

    Think you will find it was £450 !

    The previous case collapsed due to lack of evidence.

    You wouldn't want to testify against those guys either.

    The world must be in great shape if that's what the Record run on the front page.

    Just another reason Naysmith can use for keeping him out though.

    Given it was alleged that he threatened to kill a police officer it`s perhaps no mystery that the press were interested.

    Absolutely legend for Queens on the pitch but certainly not a role model off it.

    If the Tan Man ever gets around to writing a book after he retires it will be good to hear his slant on his various brushes with the Old Bill over the years.

    Was thinking earlier that Derek Lyle isn’t the only Queens player who’s been in trouble with the law over the years. I can think of quite a few. Anyone want to start ...?

    Not sure what Faulds did but he could be joined by bad boys Steve Tosh ( breach of the peace ) Ryan McGuffie ( assault) and Joe McAlpine ( drink driving )
