THE Scottish FA decided this week that they will choose either Hampden or Murrayfield as the venue for international matches and big cup games.

Ibrox and Parkhead are not longer in the running to stage those fixtures and I think that is the right call.

But I hope the SFA make another correct one and keep Hampden as the home of Scottish football going forward.

The best case scenario is that Hampden is sorted out and we keep the Scotland fixtures and the cup semi-finals and finals there for many years to come.

Hampden is where all the memories are. Maybe I am being sentimental about it because I played there so many times for Rangers and Scotland but it is the home of our game.

It could be better, of course it could, and I would like to see a bit of money spent on it to solve some of the problems that the supporters have.

One of the main complaints is that the fans are too far away from the action and many people feel that there is no atmosphere in the stadium. Those issues can be fixed, though.

I wouldn’t give the money to rugby and pay for the use of Murrayfield. It is a wonderful stadium, but it is a rugby stadium.

If you speak to people in Edinburgh, that is how they will see it. If you speak to people in Glasgow, they will want football to be kept at Hampden.

If we could improve Hampden as a stadium and improve the experience for the fans, I am sure everyone would be delighted.
