Join us on a journey of discovery back to 1872 when The Rangers were just the dream of a group of young kids who gathered on Fleshers Haugh. They had no ball, no football kit and used a bush on the Green as a changing room.

Their Club, which they nurtured, was to become the world's most successful and it all happened on the streets of Glasgow.

Our journey takes us to the area of Fleshers Haugh where The Rangers played their first ever match, we also visit Glassford Street, Union Street, Berkeley Street, Burnbank, Kinning Park, Craigton Cemetery and many other places of interest before finishing off our day with a tour of our magnificent Ibrox Stadium.

During our journey we have a 30 minute break at the West of Scotland Cricket Ground in Partick which was the scene of the Rangers first ever Scottish Cup Final in 1877. It gives everyone a chance to unwind, grab a beer or soft drink and a bite to eat at a beautiful and historical setting.

Adults : £19

Children (under 16) and Senior Citizens £14.

Group discounts are available upon request.

I've booked three seats aswell, been trying to get everyone's work patterns to sort this out for a while so finally looking forward to it.

I'd be keen to know if this Forfar - Rangers game on the Saturday will be moved to the Sunday though and if it will affect the day of the tour.

This Sunday we will once again be taking to the streets of Glasgow to celebrate our Founders with another bus filled to capacity.

We will also give you as part of your travel packs, a voucher which entitles you to a 10% discount on any full priced item within the Megastore on Sunday.

Had an excellent day on the Founders Trail yesterday and it was topped off nicely with the Ibrox tour, which I haven't done since I was a kid.

Iain is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of Rangers and in particular the Gallant Pioneers. Brilliant to stand at the site in Partick of the first ever international and the various sites where Rangers were formed, named, funded and played in their early years. The work put in by the people involved in the trail and external fans who've contributed to preserving the history of our great club is evident from the outset.

If you haven't been on the Founders Trail yet, then I would advise you to do so at your earliest convenience. By paying for your seat your money will be used to further fund the project, allows the people involved to continue to educate themselves and in turn fellow Rangers fans in the history of the forming of the club and also the current Rangers Youth Development Fund.

Thanks again and please keep up the excellent work.
