Wingin’ It

Mark Walters autobiography, out at the start of the month.

Just ordered a copy.

Anyone else bought it?

Walters was my idol as a kid, I played wide left and just wanted to be like him. What a player, a genius on the ball and just terrified defences. Not to mention loving to destroy the tim bastards.

First memory of Mark is watching him destroy Scotland in a televised schoolboys international from Wembley. Think it ended something like 4-3, have a faint memory that Ally Dick had a great game for Scotland as well.

I watched him playing for an England youth team at Villa park around 1982, best man on the park. Next time I saw him was against a.deen Jan 1991 and he scored the winner. Magic player.

That turn v's Hearts!! :drool: 

Was a pleasure to hear him on RTV at the weekend there. Never stopped referring to Rangers as 'We'. When asked what his abiding memory was of playing for Rangers....of all the great memories he could have picked, he simply said...'Scoring my first goal. Against Raith Rovers it was. Just being able to say I'd scored a goal for the famous Glasgow Rangers was special for me'! Loved that!! :UK: :UK:

5-4 game, Scotland won I think, were Paul mcstay and Paul rideout not in that match as well? Rideout got a hattrick?

The 1st time I saw him do that double shimmy is a memory to cherish. Then the falling back swinging cross he put in for Hateley to put us 1 up v the sheepshaggers to win the League.

Legend.:bow:

Hope he makes mention of those bigoted timmigrants and their racist supporters. 

He does. There was a big article in the Daily mail a few weeks ago

It was like having our very own top Brazilian player ... he had everything you could want in a player of that standing and he was ours.

I hope his book is as great a success for him as he was with us ... it is on my list for all the great memories he has given me.
