Rangers mourn death of former goalkeeper Bobby Brown

Former Rangers goalkeeper and Scotland manager Bobby Brown has died aged 96, the Ibrox club have announced.

During his playing days, Brown was a member of the Light Blues’ famed Iron Curtain defence and he later went on to manage the national team to their greatest ever victory – the 1967 Wembley win over world champions England.

Rangers chairman Dave King said: “All of us connected with Rangers are deeply saddened to hear that Mr Brown, a genuine Rangers and Scotland legend, has passed away. Our thoughts are with Mr Brown’s family at this time.

“He was a wonderful servant of our club and we will remember him with great fondness. He was a gentleman of the game and set standards which typify what Rangers is about.”
