In the list of the Rangers' eleven who took part in the match
under review, the name of Mr. Drinnan does not occur, and I am obliged to proffer an explanation. In the report of
the contest one "R. Jackson" is credited with keeping H. M'Intyre company on the occasion. As the incident is past,
and Mr. Drinnan no longer amenable to the laws of engineer apprenticeship, he did in this match what a great many
men have done before him - viz., played under an assumed name. He was a very fair back, but not sufficiently
brilliant to obtain notoriety, and never had the distinction of playing in an International. He was, nevertheless,
a very useful all-round player, and could take his place as a centre forward at a moment's notice.
