Nothing But The Struth
He coined the phrase 'we welcome the chase' but just what else is known about Bill Struth
Bill Struth; a name often used by Rangers fans as a bastion of tradition emanating from Ibrox. He was manager of Rangers for 34 years during which he won 18 titles, 10 Scottish and tow League Cups. Not too bad for somebody who never played the game. Running was more his sport but he became Rangers trainer in 1914 before being promoted to manager just six years later. A chance to read just what made the man that made Rangers is now available; 'Struth, The story of an Ibrox Legend' by David Leggat was published yesterday and will be available in all good bookstores. Nobody in charge of such an institution for 34 years will have had an easy job but Struth also had to cope with his wife's suicide and other personal battles during his tenure. This is the first book on the man which when you think of it is rather surprising when he appears to be so revered by the Rangers faithful.'Struth, The Story of an Ibrox Legend' by David Leggat is published by Black and White publishing and is priced £14.99 (ISBN 978 1 84502 703 2).
