Harold Davis was an amazing man. He suffered terrible wounds while serving in the Black Watch in the Korean War but not only recovered but was able to return to play league football that had been interrupted on his call up for National Service.

He started playing football for Fife Junior club, Newburgh, before signing for East Fife shortly before his call-up. He was signed for East Fife by Scot Symon who then went on to manage Rangers. Harold’s determination to recover from his wounds had impressed one of his physiotherapists in hospital who happened to be Rangers’ trainer, Davie Kinnear. A conversation between trainer and manager led to Harold signing for the Ibrox club in 1956 and having eight seasons as a Ranger. He played briefly for Partick Thistle. He became coach at Queen’s Park (1965 to 1969) before returning briefly to Rangers as a coach. He was a victim of a change in manager and then moved to coach at Queen of the South for another short spell before re-joining the ex-Rangers manager, Davie White, at Dundee. That was his last job in football.
