Rangers v Celtic: The Gers' Fifty Finest Old Firm Derby Day Triumphs [9781785315688]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Rangers v Celtic is Glasgow's contribution to the world's great football derby matches. Otherwise known as the Old Firm, these clashes always attract fervent crowds and huge TV audiences worldwide. Author Jeff Holmes has watched dozens of these battles from the terraces and stands of Ibrox Stadium, Celtic Park and Hampden, and knows exactly what victory means to the hundreds of thousands of Rangers supporters scattered across the globe. Here, he brings to life 50 of Rangers' greatest triumphs against the old rivals, from their first victory in 1893 to a Christmas cracker in 2018. There are iconic matches aplenty and heroes galore, including the great Davie Meiklejohn, who started the rout in the 1928 Scottish Cup Final. Read about the time Rangers thrashed their opponents 8-1 in 1943 - and about Sir Alex Ferguson's favourite ever goal, by South African wing king Johnny Hubbard, back in 1955. Relive the feats of Bob McPhail, Davie Wilson, Ralph Brand, Ally McCoist and Davie Cooper - Rangers greats who knew how to win an Old Firm match!
AUTHOR: Jeff Holmes is the author of many Rangers books, including The Journey: Mission Accomplished; A Season to be Cheerful, the story of the 1992/93 campaign; and 1986: The Rangers Revolution, as well as biographies of Mark Walters, Jock Wallace, Alex Totten, Marco Negri and Davie Meiklejohn.
