Remembering the 66. Margaret Ferguson.
Margaret Ferguson was only 18 years old when she lost her life at Ibrox Stadium on the 2nd January 1971.
She was also the only female to die in the tragedy.
Over the last couple of years as part of our Restoration of Rangers Graves Project our colleague Chris Beglin has restored the bench in Markinch, which had been placed in memory of the five boys who tragically died that fateful day, and the Robert Mulholland memorial bench in Glasgow.
With this in mind we were contacted earlier this month by Ian McLeod Milne who organises the Annual Supporters Memorial Service at Ibrox with a view to restoring the bench that had been placed in memory of Margaret at Muiravonside Cemetery.
Subsequently I had the pleasure of meeting Margaret’s sister Mary at the Ibrox Memorial Service earlier this month.
We contacted Falkirk Council and they have given their consent for the bench to be removed, restored and put back in place.
All updates will be posted.
