Synopsis
Bob McPhail played in the great Rangers side of the pre-war years. He was one of the most dynamic forwards produced by Scotland. In 354 league games for Rangers he scored 236 goals - a club record which stood for over 50 years. Winner of seven Scottish Cup medals, nine Championship medals and 17 Scotland caps over 11 seasons, McPhail was a giant in the boom years before the outbreak of the World War II. He watched the changing face of the game from his reserved seat at Ibrox, with mixed feelings, until his health began to fade. Bob died in August 2000. Bob reveals the true facts of the John Thomson tragedy, when the young Celtic keeper was fatally injured in an old firm match. He explains why he never played against England at Wembley. He illustrates the myth of his manager, Bill Struth, and explains the leadership qualities of his skipper Davie Meiklejohn. Bob McPhail's story is a vital part of the game's history at a time when names like Alex James, Patsy Gallacher, as well as "Greetin' Boab" himself dominated the roaring '20s and '30s.
