Blue Grit :The John Brown Story Hardback Book

Regular price £5.00 £0.00

From welder to winner, attacking midfielder to iron man at the heart of one of the most successful Light Blue line-ups of all time, John Brown's story is a must for every Rangers fan. In an action-packed and frank account of life with the biggest club in Britain, ’Bomber' lifts the lid on his lbrox team-mates and exposes some of the most controversial and memorable moments of his Rangers career, including the 5-1 Old Firm victory and Souness’s fallouts with some of his top stars. His story takes you inside the Ibrox dressing-room during the rnost successful season in Rangers’ long and proud history - when they clinched the Treble, narrowly missed out on a place in the European
Cup final and defeated Leeds United in the unforgettable Battle of Britain at Elland Road.
Bomber's beginnings with local club Hamilton Accies and his Dundee days, when he starred against both halves of the Old Firm and helped sink Hearts’ championship hopes in a day of high drama at Dens Park, are also told in his own individual style. He talks about his heartache when a move to Tynecastle fell through before his dream
move to Ibrox, and why he sacrificed the chance of a place in the Scotland squad for the Light Blue cause. He tells of his private battle to stay at lbrox after being told to quit by a Harley Street surgeon and of another fight to regain his place after being dropped by Graeme Souness. And, for the first time, John reveals how he was approached by Celtic.
In the end, it was Bomber’s Blue Grit that carried him through the pain barrier to the Gers' last—gasp title win against Aberdeen in one of Scottish football’s most dramatic showdowns ever, and which has made him a hero to the loyal lbrox legions.
