    I make no comment other than to recommend this article (lengthy, you will need 10 – 15 mins) as an interesting read.

    Not read it yet but I will. I’m fairly sure parts of their terracing is still there in a public park. Several YouTube videos about it, Footy Adventures is a decent YouTuber. 🙂

    You’d have thought that they’d have learned their lesson after the previous two times!

    Ironic the owner should be found dead in a Blackpool hotel.

    You’re quite right, it’s the old Hampden Park and is very close to the current Hampden Park. Known as Cathkin Park.

    The demise of Third Lanark is a pretty gloomy story, plenty of warnings from history that football has refused to heed.
