    she walks thru govan like a queen
    the proudest girl youve ever seen
    and as she passed working chaps
    respectfully they touch their caps

    So much has changed eh?

    Can you imagine Lobey Dosser or the McFlannels (I wonder if The_Gub remembers the latter of those two) being Rangers fans in this day and age?

    My old man was talking about the McFlannels just recently having seen an old book with them in it. I wasn't surprised to find out the were Gers fans but it would never happen now.

    Its friggin unbelievable and sad how much things have changed but we (ie our community) have only got ourselves to blame

    Bring back the McFlannels When older folk first heard their voices on the then new fangled tape recorders the comment was always the same-"You sound just like one of they McFlannels"
