  1. A couple of years ago the Restoration of Rangers Graves Project received a call from the Elgin RSC informing us that Rangers great RC Hamilton( 367 appearances 312 goals) was resting in an unmarked grave in a cemetery in Elgin. I asked if they could do some background work on this and get back to me but unfortunately we never heard from them again. Can you help? Are you a member of this supporters club or do you know someone who is? If so please call us on 0790 2855536 or email thefounderstrail@gmail.com as we’d like to start the ball rolling to locate the plot and rectify this.

  4. John Wallace McKay was Match Secretary of Rangers Football Club from 1882-1883. Earlier this afternoon his stone at Dunoon cemetery was cleaned and a memorial plaque placed. Archibald Harkness was President of Rangers in 1881 and was a huge influence during his tenure at the Club.Tragically after contracting typhoid he passed at only 26 years of age. Unfortunately due to the condition of the stone we were unable to bring it up as much as we’d wished but a memorial plaque was laid at his final resting place in Kilmun. If you’d like to donate to the Restoration of Rangers Gra

He was a Govan man from Merryland Street,a much loved and respected individual. He was trainer at Rangers from 1885-1897 during which time the Club moved from Kinning Park to our new home at Ibrox. Rangers won the League for the first
