At Cardonald Care Home in South Glasgow, her room was full of signed programmes, trophies and framed photos from all the club greats over the years.

Tiny started working at Ibrox in 1967 after following in the footsteps of her mother, Lizzie Love, and her grandmother Maggie Lindsay.

Speaking in a feature for the Glasgow Times, Tiny talked about how her grandmother had spoken about King George VI visiting Ibrox to formally open the Empire Exhibition in 1938.

Rangers ran in Tiny's family as her sister Irene worked alongside her in catering, her uncle Davy was head groundsman for a while, dad Willie cleaned the stands, and her husband John worked behind the bar in the Thornton Suite.
