Tributes have been paid to a stalwart of Scottish junior football who died last week at the age of 92.
Gibby Fyfe spent 26 years as chairman of Cambuslang Rangers during a golden period in the Somervell Park side’s history.
As well as representing the club on the West Region committee at Hampden, he was also president of the Central Region for a spell.
He passed away during the night between March 22 and 23.
Current Cambuslang chairman, William Miller, said this week the club had “lost a great man.”
He added: “Like many others, I was shocked by the news of Gibby’s passing.
“Gibby was involved with the club all his life. He was chairman from 1973 until 1999, a total of 26 years- great devotion to the club he loved so much.
“Gibby also represented Cambuslang Rangers on the West Region committee at Hampden and was a stalwart of Scottish Junior Football, highly regarded by ‘juniors’.
“As current chairman I often received good advice from Gibby over the years which I much appreciated.
“Although latterly, Gibby was unable to attend games, he was always interested in the results.
“On behalf of the club, I send our sincere condolences to Jean, Gibby’s wife and to John, his son. The thoughts of everyone at the club are with them at this sad time.”
Highlights of Gibby’s time as chairman include reaching the final of the Scottish Cup for a record third successive time in season 1972/73, going down eventually to Irvine Meadow after two drawn games.
There was some consolation in winning the League Championship ‘A’ Division, the Evening Times Trophy and the West
