First name

Alex Anderson

In 1969 Alex Anderson was born into a North Ayrshire world where Kilmarnock had won the league more recently than Rangers. So how can he be a traitorous gloryhunter? Eh, Dad? And he's been reading WSC since the 1980s, writing for it once or twice a year since 1999 and has even co-written the official story of Rangers' 1972 Cup-Winners Cup triumph, Barcelona here we come!, as well as a study of Dick Advocaat's Ibrox reign which had excerpts in the Daily Record and everything. You can trust this guy. He's on the level. But not a mason.
