Tiny Gllacher Obituary-Death News; In Loving Memory Of Tiny Gllacher
Mary was just carrying on the family legacy started by her grandmother Maggie Lindsay and mother Lizzie Love when she joined the club in 1967.
Her father Willie and uncle Davy were Rangers fans, her sister Irene worked next to her in the cooking department, and her husband John was employed by the stadium’s hospitality department. Her ties to her family went beyond that. Alongside her in the culinary area was her sister, Irene.
To make sure the custom is maintained, several of her own family members are still employed at the club. For all of her efforts and commitment to the team, Tiny received a special award from the United European Football Association (UEFA) in 2001.
The award was presented to her in Monte Carlo. After receiving the John Greig Achievement Award in 2014, she worked as a tour guide for the last few years of her tenure at Rangers, telling visitors about the club’s past and included some very special personal experiences.
In April 2019, Tiny’s teammates presented her with a guard of honour in observance of her retirement. She also attended the Steven Gerrard team’s 3-0 victory over Hearts at Ibrox from the stands. Rangers CEO James Bisgrove released the following statement:
“We are all very sorry to learn of Tiny’s passing on behalf of the Rangers football club. She spent more than 50 years working at Rangers in a number of positions, having dedicated her entire life to the team.
Tiny was a beloved member of the Rangers family as well as a dependable friend and coworker to many Rangers legends. Many Rangers greats considered Tiny to be a dependable friend and coworker. Her family is the first and foremost in our thoughts and prayers during this painful and terrible moment.
Words fall short of expressing our grief for your loss, as we mourn with family and friends for this great loss. We are truly sorry to hear of the loss of this promising being. Please accept our condolences, and may our prayers help comfort you. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.
