Samuel Richmond Cox – The Darvel Marvel

by Gary Havlin | Contributor

"A wonder player, no matter his position ( except goal!). He takes pride of place over the many great football personalties of the present, principally because of his versatility and his ability to give a top class performance, no matter the occasion, be it for team or country. He has a natural eye and feeling for a ball and I doubt if anyone can clip a ball so hard and direct with either foot. In fact he is so adept with both right and left that it's difficult to judge that he's a natural right. As a full-back his positioning and tackling – where does he get the strength in the tackle for one so slight in frame – are unexcelled."

Rangers News: 1st Edition – 4 August 1971

It's been 44 years since the first ever issue of the Rangers News hit the newsagents. The opening editorial described it as, "a newspaper about the Club – for the supporters. Not just those who follow the team every week or those turn out only occasionally, but for the many fans scattered over Scotland, England and overseas, who can only keep in touch with Rangers F.C. through T.V. or the national press."
