ULSTERMAN Robert Manderson made his Rangers debut against Aberdeen in March 1915 and went on to play a major part in the Gers’ success story of the 1920s.

Manderson had a superb record of regularity – he appeared in 370 League matches – and at the peak of his career there were few better players in the right-back berth.

He was a member of seven championship winning teams but missed out on a Scottish Cup medal because of the Gers’ ‘Cup Hoodoo’ of that period.

International recognition came Manderson’s way in the 1920s and in 1926 he won the last of his five Ireland caps playing against Scotland on his home club ground at Ibrox.

Along with team-mate Tom Cairns, Bert Manderson left Rangers for Bradford City in the summer of 1927.
