Alan Morton

Alan Morton1893 – 1971

Football Player; The Queen’s Park and Rangers legend is arguably the finest outside left ever produced by Scotland. At 5′ 4″ Morton was small in stature and slight in build. He was also very quick and elusive when in possession of the ball and his accurate crosses provided plenty of goals for club and country. Incredibly he was naturally right footed but perfected his left foot with constant practice. Commanding performances with Rangers were matched at international level earning him the nickname “Wee Blue Devil” due to his brilliant performances against England.

Morton, who played in the Wembley Wizards team of 1928, won 31 caps for Scotland and made 15 appearances for the Scottish League. With Rangers he was a Scottish League champion on nine occasions, a Scottish Cup winner in 1928 and 1930, and a finalist in 1921, 1922 and 1929. Morton scored 115 goals in 495 appearances for Rangers and was the hero of the Ibrox support for 13 years. On retiring as a player Morton remained with the club becoming a director.
