4 boys growing up in Glasgow in 1872 could never have imagined that the team they put together for games of football on Fleshers Haugh would grow into one of thw worlds best known and most successful football clubs. Peter McNeil, Moses McNeil, William McBeath and Peter Campbell were the Gallant Pioneers, the founders of Glasgow Rangers.

The original painting was commissioned to be gifted to the club and now hangs proudly above the famous Ibrox marble staircase. Much of what we know about the early days of the club has been thanks to the hard work of the Rangers fans behind The Founders Trail. Their tours are a must for all Rangers fans. Visit their site The Gallant Pioneers for more information.
