Scott McGleish?

What follows is a question not a recommendation. Scott McGleish has been let go by Leyton Orient. He is 37, but he still seems to have an eye for goal. He is still full of enthusiasm about playing (a quality that often seems to be in rare supply).

At the moment he seems to be looking for a League 2 or a Conference club. Indeed, he or his agent placed a story in The Non-League Paper yesterday which was effectively a plea to 'give us a job'.

But could he do a job for us? What I have in mind is a bench player who could come on in the 75th minute and perhaps make a difference. He wouldn't cost a lot.

The counter argument is that we should be looking to the future. And for McGleish it might be a reprise of his short earlier stay at The Valley when he was used as a last minute substitute. However, there are those who think he didn't get a fair chance then.

Absolutely Wyn, Scott Mcgleish showed far more grit and professionalism at his supposedly advanced age, than any of Charlton's alleged strikers over the last couple of seasons. If he's hawking himself around the lower divisions perhaps he prefers to play more often than not. I for one would be happy to see him back in SE7.

I'd rather have Glen Murray, out of contract and leaving Brighton....
