Thanks to Mark for allowing me to plug my 1st book about Rangers ' 10 matches 10 players '

In May the Monday and Tuesday after the 2 nil win v Celtic my mate and I based ourselves in Stan Gordon's Rangers pub in Blantyre. I live down South have since 1984 and the last 5 years or so organised a number of charity events in London including a charity dinner for Fernando and the Ray Wilkins Memorial game at Sutton United 2018 .
The book looks at 10 games from 10 ex players , some obvious ones like Tam Forsyth 1973 Cup Final, wee Bud Barcelona , Nacho Fiorentina away , Barry Ferguson Scottish Cup Final , Ian Durrant winning the league up at Abedeen and The Goalie away at Leeds . All the players were different class to interview and shared their stories with great pride and passion .Fernando kindly did the foreword before his sad recent passing and Gregory Campbell MP for East Londonderry kindly acknowledged this with some words just before it went to the printers . Gregory was guest speaker when I organised the Fernando dinner in London October 2015 . I've struck what I think is a decent deal with my publisher so that £1.50 from each sale will go to the ex Rangers players benevolent fund..Also any pubs , clubs or shops who stock it will also get £1.50 for each sale . It will be £12.99 in pubs etc or £14.99 if bought on line including postage. We've avoided going down the Waterstones etc route , as I wanted to raise some money for the ex players fund . I'm holding a wee launch on Wed 6th Nov at the Stonefield Tavern around 6.30pm if anyone wants to pop along , hoping to have Ian Durrant , big Marvin and the Goalie present to sign copies. The day after before the Porto home game I'm hoping to be in Nachos pub and the Wee Rangers club with some copies

Any clubs interested or anyone wants to pre order the book can do it at www.rangers10matches.com Those purchased before the 6th Nov will automatically enter a draw to win a one-off polo signed by all 10 players. Thanks to everyone who supported advised and encouraged me it's been an amazing experience

Thanks for the pre orders so far much appreciated . I pick up my 1st copies tomorrow which will be a bit emotional as the saying goes A few people asking if the ' launch ' next Wed at 6.30 PM in the Stonefield Tavern Blantyre is invite only, NO anyone who makes the time will get a warm welcome . Hoping to have a few of the players who contributed present. The limited edition Opus version went live Fri, only 100 available . ( 40 gone so far ) They include a special edition of the book, with a personal message from one of the players who contributed ( cant guarantee a specific player ) a polo shirt in Rangers blue with the 10 matches logo , a 12 year old malt whisky miniature and pen both with the logo, in a presentation box . All who buy the Opus version will automatically enter a draw to win a specially commissioned painting of a Rangers player of their choice by a fantastic young Glasgow artist . Info about the book and Opus version on the website www.rangers10matches.com or available on the night or the next day before the Porto home game at Nachos pub and the Wee Rangers Club . Any clubs, pubs or shops willing to stock it please PM me . £1.50 from each sale will go to the ex Rangers players benevolent fund and any pubs etc will get the same .

Best of luck with the book mate! For bears looking in, these will be available in The Gers Store in St Enoch and in Belfast in the next week. Looking forward to getting them in the Glasgow store today tattiet?

My manager mentioned the Launch the other day didn’t realise it was tonight or that the Goalie might be in attendance, I have the famous ‘Ibrox silhouette’ keeper top at home that I’ve been trying to get signed for years!
