Unsung Heroes,...until now
on 9 August 2009
Rangers F.C. founded in 1872 in Glasgow Scotland, are a football club who are fondly admired in all the continents of the world. A simple internet search containing the word "Rangers" will allow the unfamiliar a glimpse into the depth of feeling that is held worldwide for this great sporting institution.
How many other clubs in the world today can boast the history, the trophies and records made, or the amount of supporters clubs in mainland europe, asia, africa, australia or the americas that this club can?, no not one, if all truth be told.
The story of the Rangers is a story that has often been told, mostly with an unfair slant, and certaintly until now, never to the depths of thier true origins with refreshing honesty as has been told by this author.
Our club, founded by four young boys with an enthusiasm for the newly discovered sport of Association Football, is a story so truly deserved of a much wider audience than the worldwide diehard Rangers fans we count as our own.
The author Gary Ralston, has meticoulously researched the origins of our club from its birth-day using official register records from throughout the United Kingdom, to at last bring the true story of the beginnings of the Rangers F.C. to the people.
