1889 - Abercorn 6 Rangers 1 (McBain) - Friendly
Rangers had spent the new Year in England,playing against Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers on consecutive days,then travelling home to play this friendly at Underwood Park.They obviously enjoyed themselves south of the border,for they were soundly beaten by Abercorn shortly before returning to England to meet Nottingham Forest

This was Rangers' first defeat in the Southern League since August 18th when they had lost 2-1 away to Hibernian.Since that reverse they had embarked on a 21-match unbeaten run,during which only three games had been drawn.Rangers finished the season top of the table in the last season before normal League football resumed in 1946/47

His last goal was an Ibrox equaliser in a draw with Falkirk wasn't it?
Aye, the following season not long before he was sold to Everton.

But by this point he was clearly on the decline. And he was only 27 years of age. Crazy to think that now.

Walter did brilliantly to get his money back because by the age of 30, Everton were releasing him on a free to Hearts.
