The Founders Painting

“Peter McNeil, who’s characteristic self-denial, and zeal for the best interests of the Club, used to journey to the most desirable part of the Glasgow Green about twelve noon and set up the now noted standards. But it was not enough to set them up. He had at first either to watch them himself or pay a boy for doing so until the classic hour in the afternoon was reached”

An excerpt from an article written by William ”Daddy” Dunlop using the pen name ‘True Blue’.                         The Rangers F.C. by “True Blue”

It was these incredibly moving words which inspired us to approach the Artist Helen Runciman  and have this image put onto canvas for Rangers fans to enjoy.  Now due to huge demand Grail PR have now released a limited edition of the excellent painting.

Details bellow –

Due to popular demand we are publishing a Limited Edition print of The Founders Painting by Helen Runciman. The story of the original painting can be found at the Gallant Pioneers website here –

From Vallance to McPhail to McCoist.

124 years in two easy steps………….

It’s the little bits of magic like this that makes our Club very special indeed.

Tom Vallance was Club Captain and President for many years and kept a steady hand on the good ship Rangers when it almost went under during the 1880’s.
