Bob McPhail

1905 — 2000

A prolific goal scoring inside forward, Bob McPhail can be considered one of the greatest Rangers players of the pre Second World War Era. McPhail’s senior career started with Airdrieonians where a lethal partnership was formed with Hughie Gallacher. The ‘Diamonds’ would win the Scottish Cup in 1924 with McPhail and Gallacher predictably moving on to bigger clubs. McPhail enjoyed 12 years with Rangers, winning nine League championships and six Scottish cups. His tally of 230 league goals makes him Rangers’ highest goal scorer of the pre Second World War with only the prolific Ally McCoist ahead of him overall in the club’s history. McPhail also enjoyed a successful career at international level winning 17 caps and scoring seven goals between 1927 and 1937. His most memorable game for Scotland came in a 3-1 win over England at Hampden Park in 1937. In front of a then world record crowd McPhail netted a double as the Scots came from behind to win the match.
