For years us Rangers fans have affectionately called him ‘Sir Walter’, despite the travesty of one of Scotland’s greatest sons never having been knighted.

Ergo, in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List, surely it is time for Sir Walter to be properly remembered for the incredible man he was, and be granted a posthumous knighthood.

Of course, it’s a bit late for the man himself to be humbled at Bucks Palace under the honour of receiving it, but it’s the next best thing, and it’s about time we called him Sir Walter, properly, with that being his official title.

We’re sure few out there will disagree with this, and it’s a fitting reward for a legend who touched us all, and if anyone deserves it more, we’d love to know about them.

In fairness, many do deeply deserve honours such as these, recognition for the remarkable things they have done in their life, the service they have given others and the people they have been.

Walter is definitely one such, and we’d be deeply, deeply disappointed if Walter isn’t officially Sir Walter inside a few months.
