EVERYONE at Rangers FC is in mourning today after learning that club legend and former Scotland goalkeeper and manager Bobby Brown has sadly passed away at the age of 96.

Rangers Chairman Dave King said: “All of us connected with Rangers are deeply saddened to hear that Mr Brown, a genuine Rangers and Scotland legend, has passed away.

He was inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame in 2015 having previously been inducted into the Rangers Hall of Fame in 2002.

After succeeding Jerry Dawson between the posts, one of Rangers’ finest goalkeepers who had been at the club since 1929, Mr Brown was to win three League Championships (1946/47, 1948/49 and 1949/50), three Scottish Cups (1948, 1949 and 1950) and two League Cups (1946/47 and 1948/49).

Tall, blond and agile, Mr Brown was the last line in a famous Rangers defence which became known as the Iron Curtain and also featured George Young, Jock Shaw, Ian McColl, Willie Woodburn and Sammy Cox.

Mr Brown, who lived in Helensburgh, was a regular guest at Rangers games in recent years and everyone at the club sends their condolences to his family at this difficult time.

For six years – between 10 August 1946 and 16 April 1952 – he never missed a league game, playing in an astonishing run of 179 matches.
