Eric Caldow

Eric Caldow was born in Cumnock in 1934 and came to the attention of Rangers whilst playing for Muirkirk Juniors.

Bill Struth brought Eric to the Club in 1952 and he made his debut the following year in a League Cup tie versus Ayr United at Ibrox, featuring in a side that included legendary figures such as Ian McColl, Willie Woodburn and Willie Waddell.

Over the next 13 years Eric would himself go on to become a Club legend, Rangers winning 5 League Titles, 4 Scottish Cups and 3 League Cups during his time at Ibrox. In addition, Eric would become Captain of Club and Country and is inducted into both the Scottish Football and Rangers Hall of Fame.

Making 407 first team appearances and scoring 25 goals, Caldow represented Scotland on 40 occasions. His international career came to an end in 1963 when he suffered a leg break at Wembley following a nasty tackle by England's Bobby Smith.

A world class full-back, many consider the Gers side of Ritchie, Shearer, CALDOW, Greig, McKinnon, Baxter, Henderson, McMillan, Millar, Brand and Wilson to be the greatest of them all.

Eric Caldow died on 4th March 2019, aged 84.
