GEORGE GILLESPIE

Lambhill Cemetery

George Gillespie
1858 - 1900

George was a member of the legendary 1877 Scottish Cup Final team and gave great service to the Rangers.

He started his career as an outfield player but is remembered more for his goalkeeping skills. He appeared for Scotland 7 times during his playing career, never on the losing side.

He was a very successful business man in the license trade and owned what is now the Neighbourhood Room and Kitchen Bar in the Finnieston Area of Glasgow.

George lived at Radnor Street facing Kelvingrove Park and sadly passed away there in 1900.
