Henderson, despite my username.

 

There was nothing more exciting than Scott racing onto a McMillan defence splitter, blistering past the fullback and crossing on the run but Henderson’s all round game was better.

As a lad in my early teens, I would accompany my failing Grandfather to section G in the main stand. It was quite a collection of bunnetry. Auld fella in front had a blue painted wooden rickety, made the proverbial racket. The other side of the wooden divide, sat Lex McLean. Immediately behind, was an even bigger comedian, he had one joke. Every time Wullie Henderson took the ball, he bellowed, "stick wan in the bunion bag Wullie".

 

I asked my Grandfather, "what's a bunion bag"?

 

"A string bag for holding syboes", was the answer.

 

When was the last time you heard of a player suffering from bunions?

Time can play tricks on the mind but in all sincerity I thought Willie Henderson was one of the very few world class players I saw pull on a Rangers shirt. The next best winger was Tommy McLean

Did Pele not agree about Henderson?

Think he did but Wee Willie had to try to get fit in his early forties to play in a testimonial,think it was for Puskas,by the invite of the man himself.

 

Henderson for me by the way.
