Old Photograph George Young Scotland

Old photograph of George Young in Glasgow, Scotland. George Lewis Young, born 27 October 1922, died 10 January 1997, was a Scottish footballer, best remembered for his association with Glasgow Rangers and for being the first player to receive more than 50 caps for the Scotland national team. Born in Grangemouth, George started his career with junior side Kirkintilloch Rob Roy before moving to Rangers in 1941. Although primarily considered a centre half, he was often played at right back during his 16 years in Govan, to accommodate Willie Woodburn in Rangers' renowned Iron Curtain defence. After leaving Ibrox, Young had a three-year spell as manager of Third Lanark between 1959 and 1962. He then left football, becoming a successful hotelier. He died, aged 74, in 1997.
