The Glasgow Green is commonly recognised as the birthplace of Glasgow Rangers who were formed in 1872 when members of a rowing club on the Green took a break from their training on the Clyde and participated in a game of football on Flesher’s Haugh and became fascinated with the new sport. Among the rowers were two brothers Peter and Moses McNeil, along with their friends William McBeath and Peter Campbell. The friends were so impressed with football that they decided to form their own team. It is believed that Moses McNeil suggested calling it ‘Rangers’ after seeing the name in an English rugby football annual. Rangers’ first game was held in May of 1872 against Callander F.C. on the pitches at Flesher’s Haugh, which resulted in a 0-0 draw. Rangers only played 2 matches in their first season, and their second match was a comprehensive 11-0 win over a team named Clyde - not the present Clyde F.C. Rangers played at Flesher’s Haugh for three years before moving to their own ground, a field at Burnbank. Moses McNeil became Rangers’ first-ever international when he was called up by Scotland to play against Wales in 1876. Moses also appeared in Rangers’ firstever Scottish Cup Final side in 1877 and he scored as his team went down 3-2 in a second replay with Vale of Leven.

Glasgow Green Station The station was opened on 1 November 1895 and closed on 1 January 1917. It reopened on 1 June 1919 and closed again on 2 November 1953. The station then sat unused on the Argyle Line of the Glasgow suburban railway network, with no plans to reopen and its platforms removed. The lettering of the station name was in the same style of other Caledonian Stations, most notably on the main canopy of Glasgow Central. On 20 March 2012, what remained of the station's façade (the southern and western walls, their windows and doorways bricked up) was demolished. Network Rail cited public safety as the reason, claiming the façade had become unsafe after sustaining storm damage

The location, give or take, of Thos Seath's shipyard which turned out many ships. Latterly, the weir on the river at Glasgow Green effectively closed the yard. Fitting out of ships, especially masts and funnels, had to wait until they had passed under the city centre bridges.
