Tom Forsyth tackles Mick Channon in the last minute  of 1976 Scotland v England game. Scotland won 2-1

 

The great Tom Forsyth or Jaws as he was nick-named. Didn't score many goals for Rangers but the one he scored in the 1973 Scottish Cup Final is legendary.

It's funny how a single picture sticks in your mind, that one was in one of the football albums I used to get every Christmas, Charles Buchan's Soccer Annual or something like that.  I still have them in the loft.

Peckham: Compare the photo of that pitch to the bowling greens that todays pitches are !

 

Agree re photos in the Annuals you used to get for Christmas. I used to love Shoot, Topical Times, Playing for Rangers and The International Football Books every Christmas morning. My old man would grab the International Football Book and I'd not get to read it for ages... :biggrin:
