It wasn’t just big Davie Provan’s leg he broke, there was at least one other, a Dunfermline player called Jim Fraser (I think).
Remember a picture of the poor guy on the ground in so much pain he was biting on his teammate’s shin guard while in the background the scumbag Auld is being lectured by the ref, no idea if he was even sent off.

I worked just recently with an ex player of Thistle when Auld was the gaffer.
Now its not protocol to name people but the lad told me the players hated Auld with a passion.
He said he was sitting in his car going to training and he said to me can you remember the wee digital clock on the building at the Kingston Bridge.
Yip,he goes on it was going on 6 and the news came on with the news Auld was going to Hivs.
So he said iam sitting there in the traffic shouting yes looking forward to training that night.
When he gets there Auld comes in and starts shouting and bawling iam not away till tomorrow get out there and get round that track.
He said when Cormack came in the place lifted.
Another thing he told me that Brian Whittaker was the biggest bluenose in the Thistle dressing room when he signed for the Scum which i found very surprising.

He was in the craft. My mate (in the craft) signed for Hibs in 1973 when Auld was a coach under Eddie Turnball. Auld came up to him and gave my mate the grip, saying he'd heard my mate was likewise.
One wee story I heard (I thought it was funny) about him happened in a Glasgow pub. This Celtic fan I knew (actually a decent guy) went into the pub. He spies Auld, his hero, having a pint (this is about 1967/68). Walks up to Auld and says "hello Bertie, I think your brilliant" Auld finishes his pint, puts the pint down and says "%^*& off" and walks out the pub. The fan never forgave him.

That’s the difference between us and them. They are genuinely a different species with different social standards.
Classless rabble. That pic of him with the loosened tie and pish stain says it all. Not called the mhanks for nothing.

Hamilton GC.

I know he lives in Strathaven, but he was never away from our place and wasn’t 5o keen on paying on as a visitor/guest.
Cheers for that, I played a fair bit at SGC with an old mate and I'd heard he had been there a few times.

Possibly a former member ?

Like Hamilton as a course myself.

Possibly a bigger lady's front bottom than Lennon and Sutton combined. Horrible pish stained wanker

The uberstaunch on here will probably be after my guts but in my time of supporting The Rangers, there have been a few Celtic players such as Chalmers, Lennox, Murdoch and even Larsson who I have always been delighted to see play in a losing team but who I had a grudging respect for. Auld was always a wrong ‘un as well as a nasty bit of works. For those who did not see Auld play for them, I would describe Lennon as a mini Auld.

I remember last year when big McNeill died Auld was outside the Chamber of Secrets leading the filth singing the Sellik song belting out “We don’t care what the animals say”. A scumbag with zero self awareness.

Think this dirty old prick is probably a lot worse than Lennon. I’ve seen Lennon in the wild a few times and been with a mate (tim) who went up to speak to him in tennents a couple of times and he was perfectly decent, annoyingly. Suspect auld would be wanting a drink from anyone wanting his attention.

There are many who have worn their colours who deserve our contempt.

But my old man, who attended Rangers games home and away between 1947 and 2014, singled out Auld as the Celtic player he despised more than any other.

Given how much he hated plenty of them in the years we watched Rangers together, Auld must have been really despicable.
Same here my dad despised him.

You know just by looking at him that he absolutely fucking stinks.

I’m sure for this one story there are dozens more about him.

Haven't seen him wandering about Strathaven for a while, you normally heard him first, then he'd appear dressed like a tramp with a large cigar in his mouth.
Has a bit of a Saville look about him.

A bit of trivia; during the 70’s, he used to own the The Shawlands on the outskirts of Larkhall (Swinhill) - his son and daughter went to Craigbank Primary, so doubt they were of the tarrier persuasion.
