ON THE RECORD.

QWhen did Rangers officially abandon their no-Catholics policy at Ibrox? - John Reilly, Methil.

AIt was never an official policy but I assume you refer to the statement by Willie Waddell on October 15, 1976, following the riot by fans at a friendly in Birmingham. Waddell said the club wanted to get rid of their sectarian image, adding: "We will try to buy a Catholic player when we find one up to our standards here."

QGive career details of Peter "Ma Ba" McKennan and Jimmy Caskie, with whom I served my apprenticeship. - Jim Geddes, Barrhead.

AInside-forward McKennan became a Partick Thistle hero afer joining from Whitburn in 1934 and won two Scotttish League caps before moving south in 1947 to play for West Brom followed by Leicester City, Brentford, Middlesbrough and Oldham. Caskie, a left-winger, came to the fore at St Johnstone before going to Everton, Rangers, Forfar and Berwick. He won eight wartime caps for Scotland and a Scottish League cap.

QList the Hamilton team that put nine past Berwick Rangers at the start of a season and say which position John Brown played. - Kevin Shallow, Hamilton.

AOn August 9, 1980, hat-trick hero Brown was left-back in a game that ended Hamilton 9 (Brown 3, Deeney 2, McGrogan, McDowall, Graham, Fairlie), Berwick 1 (Egan). It was the first time in Scottish football that a full- back had hit a treble that didn't include a penalty kick. Hamilton - Ferguson, Frew, Brown, Wright, McDougall, Alexander, McDowall, Fairlie, Deeney, McAdams, McGrogan. Subs: Graham, McManus

QHearts won 1-0 at Dumfries on November 5, 1938. Who scored the goal and how did the teams line up? - H Hutchison, Dover.

ATommy Walker scored and the teams were: QOS - Mathieson, Savage, Anderson, Fitzsimmons, Bruce, McPherson, Dawson, Smith, Hay, Law, Lang. Hearts - Waugh, Anderson, McClure, Robson, Dykes, Brown, Briscoe, Walker, Black, Phillips, Warren.

QScotland beat England 3-1 in 1949. List venue, Scots captain, team and scorers. - JB, St Andrews.

AIt was played at Wembley and the score was England 1 (Millburn), Scotland 3 (Mason, Steel, Reilly). The team was: Cowan, Young (capt), Cox, Evans, Woodburn, Aitken, Waddell, Mason, Houliston, Steel, Reilly.

QWho gave Partick Thistle their Maryhill Magyars tag? - BG, Ayr.

AJournalist Malcolm Munro gets the credit for that one.

QConfirm Celtic's Kenny Dalglish was never on Rangers' books. - Thomas Foley Jnr, Birmingham.

ADespite playing for Scotland Schools at Ibrox and living nearby, Dalglish was never approached by the club he had always supported.

QRegarding England captains who asked Celtic to be their opponents for testimonial matches, you left out Bobby Moore. - Pat Woods.

AApologies for a rather glaring omission. The game was at Upton Park on November 16, 1970, and ended West Ham 3 (Hurst, Ayris, Best), Celtic 3 (Lennox, Johnstone, Connelly).
