The Restoration of Rangers Graves Project Remembers The 66. George Findlay.


The Restoration of Rangers Graves Project Remembers The 66. George Findlay.

George Findlay didn’t return home from Ibrox on the 2nd January 1971.

He was only 21.

It was friend of the project Ian McLeod Milne who put me in touch with George Findlay’s son Stephen whom I had the pleasure of meeting.

Stephen wasn’t even a year old on the day that the tragedy at Ibrox occurred. He never got to know his dad.

He told me the heart breaking story of how his uncle Ralph bought his brother George the ticket for the match as he was so keen to see the Rangers take on Celtic.

George Findlay tragically lost his life that fateful day and was laid to rest in the family plot at Riddrie Cemetery in Glasgow.

Stephen and his family reckon that through time original the stone had been damaged and was cleared,

subsequently the plot lay unmarked for many years.

Over the last three years the Restoration of Rangers Graves Project has received many donations and this allowed us yesterday to place a new stone at the final resting place of a fellow supporter taken in such tragic circumstances.

Today we remember George Findlay.
