    Plaque Placed To Commemorate Our First Scottish Cup Final In 1877.

    Unfortunately not , that's when we take our annual break.
  11. On the 17th March 1877 Rangers played our first ever Scottish Cup Final against Vale of Leven at Hamilton Crescent in Partick, the match ended 1-1. A replay was also played at the cricket ground which also finished 1-1, that game went into extra time and was abandoned amid controversial circumstances. Vale eventually won the Scottish Cup at First Hampden 3-2. This was a Rangers team of youngsters going toe to toe with the mighty Vale. It was this series of games that saw the transformation of the Rangers from what was essentially a boys club, born on Fleshers Haugh only five years earlier, to a respected football club one which caught the imagination and admiration of the Glasgow public this is something that the Club never lost. The Rangers were never to look back. With this in mind we approached the committee at West of Scotland Cricket Club with a view to having a commemorative plaque placed on their pavilion wall celebrating this wonderful achievement. We’re delighted to say that our proposal was given full approval and the plaque is now in place. We at the Founders Trail would like to sincerely thank: John Thomson at West of Scotland CC. Grant McIndoe Andy Smillie of AS Scaffolding Davie Calderwood of Elite Worktops Domenico’s Memorials
  12. We’re delighted to announce that we’ve managed to locate the final resting place at Craigton Cemetery of Rangers trainer John Taylor. John Taylor was born in 1852 but tragically,at the age of only 45, passed in May 1897 after a bout of pneumonia. He was a Govan man from Merryland Street,a much loved and respected individual. He was trainer at Rangers from 1885-1897 during which time the Club moved from Kinning Park to our new home at Ibrox. Rangers won the League for the first time in 1890 and the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1894 after beating celtic 3-1 at Hampden, it was John Taylor who trained and coached the players, he’s pictured here standing at the back with our victorious players. We would also win four Glasgow Cups and one Glasgow Merchants Charity Cup during his tenure at the Club. ‘’Johnny’’ as he was affectionately known was a sprinter in his younger days and twice received gallantry awards for saving people from drowning. Today Mr Taylor’s plot sadly lies unmarked. Over the next few weeks a new stone will be placed giving back some dignity and respect to a man we owe a lot to. These men gave us everything and this is today’s generation of Rangers supporters giving them something back.
