I only know of one who stayed in my area (Mosspark) and that was Ronnie McKinnon and I am not 100% sure if he actually did. Anyone else have former players living in the same area as them?

Yes Ronnie did live in Mosspark and Dave Smith lived Jura Street /PRW when he signed 

Wee Doddy lived in the Jannies house his father in laws on Hinśhelwood across from Ibrox when he signed

Also Scott Symon ,Davie Kinnear on Dumbrek and Jimmy Baxter just off Terregles 

big Harold Davis   Lived just behind the Coplañd Rd end

I had a few days off last week and got his book, just out of curiosity, after commenting on the thread; it's a great book by the way, his anecdotes are really informative about the world of football back then, away from the glamour and so on. The guy I spoke to said that Alex was in a BB team in Kinning Park, and that came up in the book. I think he would have been my favourite player in that Jock Wallace era; he just had something about him, which comes out in the book as well. 

Everyone in KP was in BB nine churches between Admiral Street and Ibrox Park

Quite a few players past and present. Damascus Beasley lived across the road as did that Brazilian we got from Lazio in 3rd division. He and his family wandered around in massive jackets looking cold and miserable. 

You must have got sick of the lights flashing and voices from heaven.
