Gearbox oil in Ford 5-speed

I've already put this same question in the VVC engine oil thread, but for anyone not reading that, my question is: which gearbox oil should I put in the 5-speed gearbox in my 2002 car?  I think the 'box is a Ford T9 from the Sierra XR4i - or so I'm told.

Redline MTL is a better option MT90 is a grade too heavy, 

Fill wiith 1.2ltrs from empty

Since replacing my gearbox (T9) oil with Redline MTL the shifts are far smoother and slicker (normal road use).

Does this mean that Millers Oils CRX 75w-90 NT+ Competition full synthetic transmission oil, can't be used on the Type 9 gearbox?

Key, as mentioned before is the GL4 rating.
