The Rangers ".....n" team?

During the "Scandinavian Era" in the late 60s Rangers fielded a team in which all of the players' names ended in "n".

As you can imagine there were a number of Scandinavians in the team.

I have a fair idea of the team sheet but am not certain of all of the names.

Anyone out there have the full team?

Bloody hell I forgot about King Kai......and kept thinking about Right Back................................ when did big Davy Provan stop playing left back I know

That dirty bastard Auld deliberately broke his leg in OF game in 1968 & he only played a handful more games for us after that.

Recall the broken leg..................thing about Auld is that he used to tell a story.............he used to get the train to Bridgeton and walk up the London Rd to the Glitterdome.........he used to say I am handing in a transfer request and billy mcbingo said you can't do that......why you wanting to leave.............he said.......I am fed up being called a fenian bastard everyday................mcbingo said that's no reason to leave, I get called that every day as well............auld told him it's different for you as you are a fenian bastard and I'm not.

I'm pretty sure that Provan, McKinnon, and Stevenson may have featured.

My doubts were about the forward line.

I had:-

Sorensen

Johannson Provan

Penman McKinnon Stevenson

? Sorensen ? Persson?

The 2 Sorensons never played together for Rangers One left in 1966 & one signed in 1967

Possibly January '69 this occured when the team read Martin, Johansen, Mathieson, Greig, McKinnon, Watson, Henderson, Penman, Stein, Johnston, Persson. ? Maybe a substitution took Greig off but I have no record of this, maybe somebody else has ? :sherlock:
