Former miner Jock Wallace worked his way up from football's coal face to become one of Scotland's greatest ever managers. As a player he had a love of giant-slaying, while a fruitful coaching apprenticeship included European glory before he won two unprecedented trebles with Rangers. At the height of his popularity in Glasgow he quit for Leicester City, where his typically brutal training regime guided the Foxes to the English First Division. After a spell at Motherwell, he moved back to Ibrox but was sacked after just two trophies in three seasons. Seville was the next port of call, followed by Colchester where he worked wonders to keep the Us in the Football League. Sadly, the great man was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease during his time at Layer Road. When he died in 1996, his popularity in Glasgow gave rise to a suitably huge and colourful shrine at Ibrox.
