FORMER Old Firm legends have been lined up for the third annual charity Clydebank football match in aid of St Margaret’s Hospice.

The game will take place at Glenhead Park in September.

In previous years the town’s two taxi firms Clydebank TOA and Clydebank Taxi Cars have pitched teams against each other, but this year sees the cabbies club together to take on BBC pundit Chick Young’s Dukla Pumpherston — made up of former SPL stars.

And thanks to new co-sponsors, Future Construction, the taxi drivers will be able to count on the expertise of Rangers legend and current Clyde manager John ‘Bomber’ Brown to guide them.

And Brown has hinted he may have a former Celtic player on his backroom staff.

Sean McLaughlin and Tam Collins from Clyde Street-based Future Construction have been instrumental in securing the services of Bomber for the big match. They are also sponsoring the trophy and arranging for a shirt signed by Bankie ex-Rangers star Alan Gow, which will be auctioned for charity at the game.

Speaking as plans for the game were announced, Bomber told the Post: “I think any charity event for a good cause is worthy of support in any way we can.

“Fundraisers like this are huge for St Margaret’s and I look forward to the day.

“I used to play against a lot of the guys now playing for Dukla, which gives it a bit of spice, and it’s good for the local lads and their friends to come along to.

“I hope we get some decent weather, it will be a great day for everyone.”
