Celebrity Rangers fan Grado has opened up on his Gers heroes as he prepares for a new play following a group of Gers fans, ‘Rally Roon The Rangers.’
The wrestler and comedian has been going to games for a quarter of a century and told how a chance encounter with Paul Gascoigne led to the Geordie genius becoming one of his heroes.
“I went to my first game in 1994 with my dad,”
“A year later I remember seeing Paul Gascoigne and he became my hero. A couple of weeks later at Firhill, I waited for him after the game. But no sign. Then I spotted him up the back of the team bus, on the mobile, and I began shouting ‘Gazza! Gazza!’ And he turned round, put his phone down and blew me a kiss.”
“Since then he’s been my hero. And Ally McCoist of course. And Jorg Albertz.”
“Rally Roon the Rangers” comes from the same team who wrote popular stage show “Singin’ I’m No a Billy He’s a Tim”.
