These two are in the book .One I posted on here before and a new one..

The Gallant Pioneers

It was the turn of the year in Eighteen Seventy-Two
When four young men who were steadfast and true
Walked through West End Park and spoke of their dream
To fashion and form their own football team

They were named Peter and Moses McNeil of Rosneath
Alongside Peter Campbell and William McBeath
Tom Vallance would soon join them to captain the side
As they began to play football with passion and pride

No obstacle deterred those bold Pioneers
They refused to give up as they sweat blood and tears
Until that blest day upon Fleshers Haugh
The Rangers were born in wonder and awe

On that historical date on that Spring day in May
Callander were the team the Rangers did play
The team thrived and grew against all the odds
As they delivered their fates into the laps of the gods

From such humble beginnings rose this glorious story
Of our dear club's rise to fame and world renowned glory
For it was planned in the heavens from the day of it's birth
That the Rangers would be known in the four corners of earth

Their names we shall honour, their memories we shall hail
As we retrace their footsteps on the club's Founders Trail
Thank you Gordon Bell, thank you Iain McColl
For making our history a pathway for all

Restoring the gravestones from morning 'til night
The results are a sacred and beautiful sight
Engraving the names in marble and stone
You know who you are, you are one of our own

Now our footprints can merge with those gone before
In passion and love for our Founders of yore
Ne'er shall we forget the price that they paid
As we build upon the foundation they laid

As all great men do they knew heartbreak and sorrow
But the tears that they shed are our hope for tomorrow
The trumpets were sounded as they entered God's rest
For those Gallant Pioneers were simply the best

So look down from Heaven, look down with pride
On the team that you formed on the banks of the Clyde
We will never forget through the passage of years
You four Angels of Ibrox, The Gallant Pioneers

Gateway to Greatness

The Gateway to Greatness leads to our training centre
Only those who love Rangers are beckoned to enter
Where visions of glory await every player
Who pull on the jersey and utter this prayer

"Oh Lord give me strength that I may one day
Run out for the first team at Ibrox to play
In front of the greatest support in the world
As the 55th league title flag is unfurled

It'll be a privilege to play for the team I adore
To hear the fans sing, to hear them all roar
As I put the ball in the back of the net
And come off the field without one regret"

The Lord answered back, "Son here's what to do
Have faith in your dreams until your debut
Then I'll be your guardian and your defender
Just keep believing and never surrender

Success is assured when I'm on your side
I've blessed the Rangers and I am their guide
Just never forget that your faith is the key
And that the Gateway to Greatness was opened by me"

Great stuff IITN.

Your work is up there with the best, in fact when it comes to your poetry in relation to events that surround our great club, yours is the best I have read.

E10H beat me to the order.............
Blueismycolour thanks for that kind endorsement. Like all Rangers our amazing club is a continuous inspiration to me. Every single thing about Rangers can't help but flood the senses with awe and wonder.

Writing poetically about them is a true joy and a privilege and I hope reading the poems deepens the love every Rangers supporter has for our fantastic club.

It is in the net wrote a book
So I thought I'd take a look
So I'm going to get a few
Board and managers and BJK. Sweep sweep up wi the barriers
That's the way of the PEADO tarriers.
