Houston, Stewart Remember Stuart well playing for port glasgow rangers u/18;s in about 1966/67 , he was a fantastic player at that time very imposing player . in that team Billy Rafferty, John Wilson, Con Renfrew, to mention a few, on leaving school at age 15 you had to play u/18,s football as there were no lower leagues being about 5foot 2 inches I got kicked all over the pitch by guys nearly 3 years older , but always remember Stuart returning the compliment by sorting out the guys who were dishing out the treatment , at that age he was a man playing in a boys game he stood out a mile , and then only went on to prove how good he was by the career he had,, fantastic guy !!!
