Early 70s bits 'n' bobs

39 posts in this topic

Does anyone remember, or maybe even still have, a wee rubbery keyring (mid to late 60s?) of a Rangers player (meant to be Willie Henderson?) with a ball at his feet?

I'm sure I do, that hard kind of rubber, and there may have been a Jimmy Johnstone one too for the taigs ?

Edit: I googled both and could not find Wee Wullie, but there's a Jimmy Johnstone one with a ball at his feet that is listed as a picture on Kerryfail Street (so I'm not linking it), So I'm now sure there was a Wilie Henderson one too.

Some memories on this thread, I had most of the memorabilia pictured. And the Wee Willie Henderson key ring, if I remember correctly it was slightly inaccurate in that the socks were blue with a red top instead of black. 

Pedantic Loyal.

75? At Easter Road 1 each

What a day that was, the amount of Union flags hanging out the Edinburgh windows after the match was astonishing to the young me.....We took 40.000 through there that day, easy.

Oh, that 'Glory, Glory' record!  I played it until the vinyl wore thin.  Some of the songs still run through my head - 'Down the track, the train came a'runnin, Rangers three, Celtic nothing, oh oh oh, oh yes, that's right.  We've got the men they are steady, the Rangers motto is Aye Ready ...'

Correction - it was the 'Follow Follow' record featuring the Blue Boys of Ibrox.  Wonder what happened to them?

Yeah, every game, team, scorers and crowd size since 2nd world war with brief write up on the major games. The beginning is a potted history of the pre war games.
