My mum would have loved that today
Second drink, a toast to George Nelson, who along with Tommy Thomson, died in the 1961 Ibrox disaster.
George's brother Roy is a smashing guy and the family are still big bluenoses.
My gran hated football,my pop went to every game and could have named you every player in every Rangers team like every bear in that generation.Exactly bud.
Both my grannies were superstars mate and although they couldn't have cared less about football, both proper staunch wee women.
Miss them both everyday
100%One of the reasons I'm so bitter at the goings on since 2012 is the amount of Bears who passed, with their final memory of The Rangers being at our lowest ebb.
They will all be in my thoughts when we eventually regain, hopefully in not too distant future, our rightful place!
Our great friend Peter Morrison, who sadly passed away yesterday. Will always be remembered by everyone at Townhead Rangers SC
We dedicate today's victory to his memory.
Another old friend of mine and a good few on here will remember him . . . Jock Paterson from Kilmarnock, as big a bluenose as you’ll ever meet.
Knew both Tucker and Mel from years ago in Drumchapel, never knew they had both passed on. Sorry to hear thatA toast to my dad Tucker Hamill who took me to my first match against Dundee in a Scottish Cup 1/4 Final 6-3 win for my 9th birthday in March 1979. He was telling folk to lay off Alex Miller with a typical, "Hey you, cut it out" being a fellow Drumchapel man and regular in my dad's local The (Orange) Peel Bar.
Also to my Uncle Alex (Mel) Hamill who took me to my first full house at Ibrox against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Cup in 1982 with a majestic Davie Cooper on show. Some atmosphere and a wee smell of whisky in the air from Uncle Alex' hipflask and many others around us in The Copland Rear.
