Yep sorry meant to say it was Gordon jr. he cut my hair when he played for Falkirk and Celtic and after it all. Gave me the odd lift back to corstorphine where he lived at the time and after he played , as I was usually his last appointment and my folks lived not far from him. Good Jambo.

his dad did the shop up the stair as you say and is an absolute legend , total legend

Who for? I used to work around George Street and used to see a guy going about in suits a lot who I swore was Gary Wales double, but I thought he looked too young and just didn't think it would be him.

Mcewan Fraser Legal, Aye he hasn't aged, looks like he could still be playing but he's 40 now

If these guys are fit enough, along with young guys who don’t make the grade, would be good referees. They could be fast tracked and have a decade long career as a ref.

Quite a number over the years have become posties, must be that they are still finished by lunchtime that they like!

I may be wrong but didn't Alan Lawrence make the papers as he got the sack for dumping mail (or something along those lines)?

 

Michael Hart (Aberdeen, Preston, Livi, Hibs) is oil and gas industry. 

 

Derek Lilley (played a handful of games for us) scored in 2004 League Cup final v Hibs was a relationship manager with Bank of Scotland then left to become a sales manager with Cadburys. 

 

Ramon Vega (Spurs and Celtic) went into banking and finance.

I was working in the West end oyster bar when raith beat Celtic in the league cup final. Young Gordon used to pop in semi regularly, as you said a decent guy, but he used to sit with his missus and they kept themselves to themselves. The day of that final, Gordon was in, I served him and his missus, I just said bad luck today, he said thanks but knowing I was also a Jambo I probably didn't mean it (he said it tongue in cheek).

2 wee tubes came in, huns I think. They realised Gordon was sitting in the bar. After getting drinks for themselves they started trying to wind Gordon up. He just sort of laughed at first, but it was obvious he just wanted left on his own. 1 of said tubes then said something like it serves you dirty taigs right. At this point, Gordon stood up and started walking towards the plebs, they suddenly realised just how big the guy was and shat it. Left their drinks and ran out the pub. I was glad as that was a scrap I didn't fancy trying to.break up.

On the BBC World Football podcast this week (or maybe last week’s now) there is a short discussion about players prior to the wage boom.

Mentioned Mickey Hazard (fantastic player) is a London cabbie. 

Gordon Hunter works with City Cabs, as does Jimmy Sandison (as posted). Cropley and Ralph Brand with them too. Plus it’s a couple of no very nice Hibbys that run the show up there.

Big Chuck with Central so go black cabs with them, or use one of the apps!!! Also, Crabbo was with Central Executive ferrying important RBS staff around.

Its been an Indian restaurant for about 10 years. Certainly towards the end the Rainbow was very run down. Bare carpets and generally grotty. In its day it was a great boozer. Could be a bit lively mind you...

I worked in Torphican Street from 1988-1990 and used to pop into the newsagents for an Evening New to read on the bus home. My memory is Gordon Sr in the paper shop whilst Gordon Jr was in the barbers.

Cruickie worked in Scotts in Rose Street and (I think) The Tynecastle Arms.

 

Peter Marinello had Marinellos on the Walk.

Cruickie also worked laterally at Sighthill Health Centre.

Everytime I see his name it really annoys me the way he was treated by Hearts.

I'm sure Alex MacDonald and Sandy Jardine used to insist the squad had a good standard of education knowing that a career in playing was a relatively short one, so  that the players have something to fall back on when they hang up their boots.

Your dad was dead right.

 

I was in attendance at a birthday party of his, in his house, as my best pals uncle was the Hearts ‘PR man’’ back then.  His name was Ian Scott btw.

 

You would be hard pressed to meet a nicer man than Jim.

 

Cruickie got the hard end of the stick from Hearts, which is still incredibly disgusting in my opinion.
