Rangers legend Walter Smith sadly passed away

The true spirit of the late, great former Rangers manager Walter Smith, who sadly passed away last Tuesday, is revealed in his contrasting dealings with two young apprentices from Belfast who arrived at Ibrox with high hopes of a career in football.

John Douglas and Paul McKnight arrived in Glasgow aged just 16 and shared digs in Bishopbriggs while at Rangers.
