Cheerio Ceremony for an ex player

Just seen the thread on Suarez, got me thinking.
Who left our club without a proper goodbye that was worthy of such a ceremony?

McCoist. His last game at Ibrox he left the pitch in tears because he missed a dozen sitters we had just lost 10 in a row. Then managed the club through the toughest period in our history and left on gardening leave.

Also in one of his last league games as a player for Kilmarnock was against us at Ibrox and he was an unused sub. Unbelievable that he wasn’t given. Wee run out for the last few minutes.

He came out with Prso to say goodbye I’m sure
He should have been out ahead of Dado, no offence to the glorious ponytailed specimen, but he contributed nowhere near to what Stefan did. Maybe, being a quiet person Stefan didn't want the spotlight? But still didn't sit right with me.
Similar the way that Kenny Miller, Lee Wallace, Lee McCulloch and Neil Alexander didn't get any kind of real farewell, for different reasons they all deserved one.

Was that not bobby Williamson that refused to put him on?

It was with the excuse "I've got to look after Kilmarnock"

Which is fine.

BUT...if you're looking for a goal in the last minute of a game to help your goal difference and there was a player in the World likely to come on for 90 seconds and fluke a shot in to the net against the team he was record scorer for and who live a Roy of the Rovers style football career, could you name who was likely to do that?

Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller without doubt.

Also, and this is a slightly different scenario, but I really feel for Andy Halliday that due to COVID he didn't get to say his farewells out on the Ibrox pitch in front of the fans.

Except that excuse doesn't hold water. They were 6 down.

No fuckin wonder we can't bully teams on the park if this is the attitude off the park!!!!!!

Calm yourself. No one is proposing we actually do this.

Aye, I know. Was simply pointing out that the GD wasn't going to make a difference at that point and if anything, they were more likely to nick a goal.

Williamson was just being a prick for the sake of it.

Tugay hijacking Albertz's lap of honour on the back of 18 months of average substitute performances, 1 outstanding start and 2 good goals was cringeworthy.
