As I say Rob I will have to check out my original notes. If he was born in 1857 he would be around 15 or 16 when Rangers played their first game in 1872. Moses McNeil was only 17 then was he not when Rangers played their first match in May 1872.

Rangers Pioneer

The story of Samuel Galbraith is mentioned in a copy the Glasgow Eastern Standard. I will have to recheck the date when I find my original notes I can safely say it was either 1935 or 1936.

Samuel Galbraith of Rangers

I recently came across the name of a Samuel Galbraith in an old 1930's newspaper in which it said he was a founder member of Rangers. He isn't mentioned in any of the Rangers histories that I have at home and he doesn't rank a mention in the recent 'The Gallant Pioneers' book by Gary Ralston. Yet th...
