Good episode? Give it some love!
This is the story of how Derek Currie became one of the first European professional footballers ever in Asia, and became an icon of the game's golden age in Hong Kong. In spells with Rangers and Seiko, along with fellow Scots Walter Gerrard and Jack Trainer, he won league titles and trophies aplenty. He also rubbed shoulders with some of the world's best sportsmen and even some pop stars, including Pele, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Rod Stewart, and many more.

In Part 1, we follow Currie from Glasgow to Hong Kong, where an excellent Rangers team, buoyed by new signings, sped to the top of the league... before beginning to disintegrate.
