Rangers 1872: The Gallant Pioneers

Post by Cinneide » Tue Jul 14, 2009 12:35 pm

Rangers 1872: The Gallant Pioneers by Gary Ralston
Rangers Football Club are one of the world's most famous sides, with an illustrious history and fans that follow them to the ends of the Earth.

But few know the true story of how Rangers were formed by four teenage pals - and their touching, yet tragic stories.

Record sports writer Gary Ralston spent three years researching the history of the reigning SPL champions' founding fathers.
Rangers 1872: The Gallant Pioneers by Gary Ralston is published by Breedon Books, £14.99.

Surely ANYTHING is better than William Allison`s "...red cheeked, laughing lads, flushed and happy from the exhilaration of a finishing dash with the oars...""...young crusaders..." tripe.

I'd back that up - very interesting book with a huge amount of original research.
