  10. A couple of years ago we managed to locate in Cathcart Cemetery Glasgow the final resting place of Rangers player and president James Watson. We’re delighted to say that Restoration work was carried out on the plot last weekend. James Watson. Player 1874-1879 Vice President 1889-1890 President 1890-1891. Match records show that James Watson started playing with Rangers in 1874 but he was likely involved with the Club before then. He was a member of the legendary 1877 team that got so close to winning the Scottish Cup. James Watson is one of many players from the early days of the Club who took up various committee roles when their playing days were over. James went on to become President of Rangers in 1890. A teacher ,he taught at both Calder Street and Hillhead High School in Glasgow.James Watson ended his days in East Kilbride in the Maxwellton area in a house called Kia Ora and passed on 25th May 1915. He was a huge figure during the growth of our Club,today he once again stands tall.

  13. How would you like to write you or a loved one into the history of Rangers? The Gallant Pioneers is widely respected as the most authoritative account of the early years of our club. Now author Gary Ralston, in conjunction with Gordon Bell and Iain McColl from the Founders’ Trail, is working on a 150th anniversary edition to be produced in time for Christmas 2021. A limited edition hardback, with compelling new insights, research and stories, will be published later this year - and fans are being invited to follow in the footsteps of Moses, William and the two Peters from 1872. For £39.99, supporters can secure a signed copy and also contribute a dedication to anyone who has ever held our club dear, to be published in a special section of the book. Up to 30 words, the warm hearted greeting can be to a brother, sister, friend or departed family member and will be a cherished gift to treasure forever. Furthermore, everyone who purchases the limited edition hardback and contributes a dedication will also receive a £10 gift voucher. It is redeemable against a future Founders’ Trail tour, where the Victorian roots and fabled tales of the club’s formation are memorably brought to life by Gordon and Iain. A percentage of profits from sales will also go to the Restoration of Rangers Graves Project, which honours the memory of the men who helped make the club one of the most famous in the world. We believe it’s a brilliant Christmas gift idea for supporters everywhere. Four Lads Had a Dream, now Rangers fans can share in the wonderful reality of the outstanding club they created.
