Who was Willie Findlay?

Willie Findlay was a Scottish football player.

Motherwell-born Findlay began his career with Scottish junior club Blantyre Victoria F.C. before moving to join Scottish Football League club Albion Rovers in 1941. Findlay became recognized as one of the finest players ever to appear for the Cliftonhill side, forming a strong partnership on the right wing with Johnny McIlhatton.

Findlay's showings for Rovers earned him a £7,500 move to Rangers in April 1947. During his time at Ibrox he netted 65 goals and won medals for both the league and the Scottish Cup. His spell at the Gers included scoring in the 1950 Scottish Cup final in a 3–0 win over East Fife. Findlay also scored in the 1951 Scottish League Cup Final, a 3–2 defeat by Dundee.

He returned to Albion in 1954-55 season for a few months.
