Like the other members of the Rangers, Mr. Steel was very
young when he joined that club. His enthusiasm for the game, however, was unbounded, and I have been told by an old
Rangers' man that he was one of the original "moonlighters" of the club. This phrase gentlemen, requires some
explanation. It does not refer to Ireland and its agrarian grievances. No, no. It was only a few choice spirits of
the Rangers who, determined to win all matches, used to practice at full moon, and frequently frightened some of
the belated lieges in the vicinity of Kinning Park, who swore the place was haunted.
