Could you build your Rangers team of today around these three ?

What kind of transfer fees would they go for ?

I haven’t seen much of any of them, a little bit too young for that but have of course read about all of them.

Anyway, away from the shambles that is Scottish football today, I thought I’d post this and brighten the day up a little. Just arrived in the mail.

Yip.

I bought a lot of thirty eight of these magazines to get that picture and read the article. But it’s worth it.

To be fair there is quite a bit of football coverage ( Bobby Charlton , Sir Stanley Matthews, vintage Olympics ( Melbourne 1956) and lots more in the lot as well so that’ll help broaden my education of sports in the 1940’s / 50’s.

I love these threads. We're all about our history and major contribution to Scottish football.

I hoped you would see this and post on the thread. :)
Thank you for posting. It's a fantastic article. I'm sure i've seen the pic before but don't think I've seen the accompanying article.

What's amazing as well is that the dressing room has hardly changed at all since that article. The wooden panelling, the pipes underneath....... even through modernisation, we've kept the tradition, allowing the seamless handover of the club from generation to generation.

Could be wrong, but have Waddel and Shaw got that badge because they'd been capped by Scotland when it was taken and Young hadn't? A far bigger deal (and harder to get) back in the day, could be way off but that was my initial thought.

Nope, unfortunately the order for full international caps was WIllie Waddell, George Young then Tiger. Wondering if it might have anything to do with Scottish League XI ?
