As Grant has pointed out in the past, I was a Rangers supporter at school in the 60's. However, I watched Airdrie regularly late 60's early 70's as my cousin Billy Wilson played for them with Drew Jarvie, Jim Black etc. The same BW who later managed the Rovers and initially got me involved here.
I was at the 1967 Celtic European Cup games against Nantes, Vojvodina (Billie McNeil last minute headed winner) and Dukla Prague, as well as the Rangers Cup Winners Cup games of the same year against Glentoran, Borussia Dortmund, Real Zaragoza, Slavia Sofia. Didn't get to the finals against Inter Milan and Bayern Munich (Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Muller et al).
Watched all of Thistle's 1971 home games (Alan Rough, Jimmy Bone, Alex Forsyth, etc) including their cup winning run, but missed the defeat of Celtic in the final. Also flitted about between St Mirren, (Frank McGarvey) and the original Clydebank FC, (Davy Cooper), Motherwell (Willie Pettigrew and Bobby Graham).
That will no doubt leave me open to some serious abuse!!!!!!
