As Rangers Football Club prepares to enter a new era, this book looks back at its famous history through a magnificent collection of photographs, many of which are published for the first time. The latest in the unashamedly nostalgic 'When Football Was Football' series chronicles a remarkable story which began in 1872 on the banks of the river Clyde when four teenagers thought to form a football club. A product of industrial, working-class Glasgow, that club grew in to one of Scotland's biggest institutions and continues at the forefront of Scottish football. This tome, though, focuses on a more innocent time in football, when players and punters mixed and shared the glories and the grief. Dozens of wonderful black-and-white and colour photographs not only capture the triumphs and trophies at Rangers, of which there have been many, but also catalogue the troubles and tragedies, which, unfortunately, there have been more than a few. This is a book for every Rangers fan who wishes they could have watched The Gallant Pioneers, the early successes of William Wilton's sides and Bill Struth's Iron Curtain defence, and the many, many more who did witness the brilliance of Baxter, Wallace's warriors and nine-in-a-row.
