    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"

    A respectful bump for this thread and an ideal Xmas present for any true blue I would think.
    I'll certainly be purchasing a copy

    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.

    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.

    I feel truly humbled by the response I have had for the book from the Rangers family.

    The interest and demand from UK and abroad has meant that I have had to order a second batch of books already while still awaiting delivery of the first batch which are due this week.

    God bless the Rangers!
