Ally Dawson RIP


Recommended Posts

I believe ex Rover Ally Dawson passed away today at the tender age of 63. We never really saw the best of him after he suffered a horrendous head injury while playing for Rangers but I still have fond memories of his time playing under the Don.

RIP Ally

Ally was technically gifted footballer but didn't really hit any great heights with us. 63 is really no age.

Think he enjoyed life off the pitch a little too much, was a regular in the Woodlands back in the day along with several others of the squad.

Always seemed a very affable bloke indeed though.

63. Gulp.

RIP.

It was the norm then to see players out in local pubs and clubs knocking them back. Every Saturday night would see a group of players in the Cav VIP lounge and they would always have the time of day for us.

I was lucky enough to work with him for a while on a homeless project in Motherwell and he was a brilliant guy. He did enjoy a drink by all accounts but I don't know whether the 'long battle with illness' relates to that or not.

I remember Rovers signing him and it seeming like another Don Mackay masterstroke.  I remember his flash motor, blue GOLF GTI cabriolet, white top and think it was the dogs b.  Also remember mates brother saying he saw him out of the razz 2 or 3 times a week usually with Andy Kennedy.

I just can't remember him playing.

Had a great Rangers career though   RIP
