That's the one Bud only played can half a dozen league games and a couple of pre season, usual big things expected but didn't work out, transferred to Norwich just before Dandy was signed.

(The Athletic News, 01-08-1927)


The Scottish League champions confidently look forward. The playing staff numbers 25, only three being newcomers. All are half-backs – J. Simpson, J. Docherty, and T. Lockie. Simpson comes to Ibrox from Dundee United. He is 19, and is a player of distinct promise in the centre half position. In style he is not unlike Jack Hill, of Burnley. Docherty, a right half, comes from Cambuslang Rangers. Both in destructive and constructive work he shows ability above the average. Lockie, from the Border junior club Duns, is a centre half, big and strongly built.

Three familiar figures will be absent from the team – Robert Manderson, Thomas Cairns, and Arthur Dixon. Manderson and Cairns have been transferred to Bradford and Bradford City respectively, but Arthur Dixon is still without a club. All three gave sterling service to the Rangers, and their absence will be regretted by their many admirers.

There is no reason to doubt that the Rangers will be as big a force in Scottish football as in the past. With their big list of stars’ the Ibrox club and its supporters are hopeful that next season will witness a Scottish Cup triumph – a triumph which has evaded the club for over twenty years. League honours are familiar to Rangers, but the Cup is a total stranger.

To those who have not visited Ibrox Park since April a big change in the ground will be apparent. The old pavilion has been demolished and a palatial new one erected. The dressing-rooms embrace all the latest equipment for training, and the directors’ accommodation is magnificently finished. Next summer the grandstand extension will be proceeded with, the embankment enlarged, and in season 1928-29 Ibrox Park should comfortably house 120,000 spectators.

At the game right now , but if you can tell me at what time Ronnie McKinnon is on I'll have a look . Not heard him mentioned before so could be dubious.

Hmm. Not sure I've ever seen Ronnie McKinnon with hair that length . I could be wrong though as it's a bit before my time and only going by pictures I've seen . 

Could be  a younger Clint Eastwood :lol:

Edit. One of the names mentioned was a certain @Bobby Hume :lol:

Yeah I've seen Bobby Hume and also Jim Forrest mentioned?

I've seen another post on YouTube saying it was filmed in an old Church in Manchester! 31-12-1964, that can't be right we played the scum on 1st of January and Davie Provan , George McLean,  Davie Wilson and Ronnie McKinnon ( if it even was him ) played in the match

The version I heard was Top of the Pops filmed it at the Locarno on Sauchiehall St . Sadly I don't think there's any way of finding anything out for sure  , not even the players present .

Yep  , they seem to zoom in to George McLean and , who I think is Davie Wilson , between 1.45 and 2.05 while Davie Provan is there in the background . Provan"s actually on it quite a bit from 0.05 onwards .
