Ah right nice one, I use to stay across from Trinity above the Masonic Lodge. Once met Durrant, McCoist and McCall who were at a wedding there. 

Pretty sure the 19th hole is now called the jack pot (I stayed there 2 years ago so probably changed now). Always drank in the Black Bull just next to the bingo hall. 

Almost Rangers!,Donnie McKinnon  twin brother of the legend Ronnie lived in Arkleston  scheme,Renfrew for many years.Not sure if still there.

It's back to the 19th again , Black Bull's still going strong , Prince of Wales is lodge , Trinity was the old Renfrew High before new school was built 

Yeah my old man still drinks in the Bull most weekends, good Rangers pub. Was drinking in there on the day of the Helicopter sunday (We beat Hibs), one of the best days of my life pub was bouncing all night long although Alan behind the bar wasn't too happy :lol:

I seen Ian Wallace in Homebase Dumbarton 10-12 years ago. He was reeking of drink and looked like he had a really bad drink problem 

Hope he sorted himself out - I believe he was/is a good bluenose. 

Did he play for Forest ?

His Brancumhall one ?  These were too dear for me so I bought an ex council one along the road in Glen Tennet. 

I had a good argument with McCoist at the Clydesdale bank in the village.

Alan was always a brilliant laugh when he worked during the OF games, could give and take the banter. Yeah Shona was brand new. Would highly recommend the bull for anyone who moves to Renfrew & is a bear.

Jaws stays down the street? First ever favourite Rangers along with the no4 which I won the 1975 national with.

My late da always said he sharpened his studs before he came out, absolute legend when it is used all to frequently with Rangers.

What it must be like to have money and stay next to footballers :bow:, but seriously you think the players of big Tam's class got at Ibrox compared to these pretenders,  could do with a big Tam now in that team.

Will always be my hero and when you say Rangers no4? I think Gough then big Tam

Grew up in Livi where Danny Wilson comes from. Probably passed his mum in the shopping centre pushing him around in his pram.

Jeremy Clement lived in a flat down the harbour in Ardrossan for a period. Must have been owned by the club because remember seeing young lads with official club gear on coming out of a flat there years ago too.

It was when both roads were open to the bank and he parked his car across the entrance. I told him to move his car and he said " don't you know who I am", I said yes and move your fucking car. He mutter Tim under his breath and I corrected him about that and that the sun doesn't shine out of his arse. I remember him from when I played for Duncanrig and  played against Hunter High/Claremont and he was in the team and he was a prick then as well.

Moved into my new flat on Friday at Deer Park in Livingston. Took a parcel in for the flat above on Saturday, never looked at the name just sat it at the front door. Gets a knock at the door yesterday and it was Nicky Clark, stood and looked at him for about 5 seconds thinking what the fuck are you doing here, we spoke for a good half hour. Decent guy.
