Think it was under Bill Struth. If you look at some photos around early 1900's a few players have mustaches but by 1920's when Struth was in charge all players were clean-shaven.

I'm certain it was under Struth. I'm sure he introduced a number of rules aimed at improving the professionalism and respectability of his players and staff

It's not a stool he's got one of the first wee tims to lie down so he can stand on him, kept them in their place back in the day.

Photographic evidence of the first "bouncy on a ****"? The scummies will be salivating at the prospect of some propaganda material.

Oh that's right. That was another fabricated claim that only resulted in a fail.

By 1933 it had certainly changed --- looking at the photograph brought back memories of my grandfather -- went everywhere with a 'shirt and tie'

Wish ED was still here --- he saw these guys play. Remember Bob McPhail telling us how good a keeper Jerry Dawson was -- pity there is no video of those days.

Mr. Struth also made sure that all socks were at the right height,(to the well sung knee) all tops were inside the shorts, (Baxter would have been reprimanded) hair styles kept uniformly short back and sides, (Baxter again would have been told to adhere) and all players to act as ambassadors of Rangers and to behave as gentlemen.

A quirky one of his rules was that, if a player went to the pictures, he must obtain a circle ticket, as Rangers players were payed enough money to do so. All these rules were put in position to make us stand out from the rest, and to set a good example for future generations of Rangers players, and to portray the image of team spirit, on and off the park.

This also transferred to the support, who would follow the example of the players, and would be as best dressed as they could afford, when stepping out to support their team, witnessed by the best bunnet and tie brigade, as seen on the old photos of bygone days.
